Diabetes Tracking Spreadsheet

This diabetes tracking spreadsheet allows you to track the foods you eat and the glucose levels from your testing.

By tracking both the food and the glucose readings, you can look back to see what effected your blood sugar levels.

Knowing how your diabetes reacts to certain foods can help you control the glucose levels.

In addition to the food tab and the glucose tracking tab, there is an instructions tab in the spreadsheet.

Food Tracker Tab

To record your foods, simply type in the food item description and any nutrition information you want to track. The nutrition columns include calories, fat, protein, carbs, sugars and fiber.

There are additional columns that are formulas. Depending on what information you input, these will calculate the proper values.

These additional columns are net carbs, WW Pts and Pts Plus.

The net carbs is a calculation using carbs - fiber to give you the net carbs.

The Weight Watchers points formulas use the calories, fat and fiber (for original points) and fat, carbs, fiber and protein for the plus system.

So if you are a member and want to know the points, you must input all the nutrition information. If you do not have fiber available, just use zero for this nutrient.

Glucose Tracker Tab

On this tab of the diabetes tracking spreadsheet, you can track up to four weeks of glucose testing. There are columns for different times of the day so no matter when you take your test, you can record it here.

There is an area to record your morning readings and bedtime readings. In addition, you can record your blood sugars before and/or after each meal.

The averages for the week (and the four weeks totals) will automatically be calculated using the formulas in this spreadsheet.

Once you are done with the four weeks, simply save the file as a new name if you want to keep that information. If not, just clear all the fields before starting your next four weeks of tracking.

The link below will open up a new window where you can save this file. The file is in a zip format. Once you have saved it to your computer, you will have to unzip the file in order to start using it.
