Ok, so this may sound like the most childish thing to do but I found it works :)
My A1C is always high, I mean always, and not just a little high, its alway up in the 20s, which I know is horrendous and ridiculous! So I decided to buy some groovy little colourful stickers and make a chart to monitor my levels.. I have decided to do my blood sugers 4 times a day (which is alot for me) and just record them. Then I have colour co-ordinated the stickers depending on how low or high my A1C is...
Yes Im 21, and I get that it sounds rather silly but for me it works, it basically incourages me to do my blood sugers more often and that way obviously I can keep a closer eye on what insulin I need and my control has been ten times better even over the last few days.
I don't really know why I feel the need to share this with the whole of TuDiabetes but maybe Im hoping someone might read this who (like me) never used to test their sugars , and when they did they were through the roof, and maybe, just maybe, they will make a nice pretty chart,and record their levels and it might just help them out!
So yeh, thats it really :-)
