I wonder if anyone can help me, particularly in the UK.
I have a problem with reading and writing numbers - and as we all know, certainly in the UK we have to write down dates, times, test results, carbs eaten, etc, and most of it in numerical form! Unfortunately my nurses have been very unsympathetic and accuse me of being lazy, attention seeking etc .... The doctor is a bit more sympathetic and has yet to come up with a solution. The numbers can change value or I simply do not recognise what they are and try to write them down and then they go from example a 3 to an 8, or a 2, or a 4 - something seems to scramble between eye and hand! Not very helpful!
I wonder if anyone else in this group, either has a problem with numbers or knows someone who has and is diabetic, and how they deal with the problem.
I have a Jazz glucose meter which is supposed to download onto a computer and my diabetic nurse earlier this week had never seen one before. I got it because it said in the blurb, that it would download test results etc, but I now find it does not like Windows 7!
I think a meter which does download might help - I do seem to be able to read bar charts and graphs - and if I were to draw two lines - one for normal levels and one for too low then I should be able to see what is going on.
As yet, I have not found a glucose meter that will work with Windows 7 and I am not clever enough to change my laptop. And I am unemployed, so cannot afford to change either.
