The only empirical data we collect on a daily basis that can help us manage diabetes is blood sugar readings. Testing multiple times per day results in a large amount of data that can be analyzed by a computer to help identify trends and problem times. Many new meters have built-in computers that provide averaging or even more sophisticated reports.
Some meters can also be connected to a personal computer to download their memory into a database for analysis. The reports generated by these computer programs can be very helpful. For more information, see Computerizing Your Meter.
