Old-fangled still works
We're forever writing about new
technologies in this magazine. Some of
them remove the need for you to input
any blood monitoring data by doing the
tracking themselves and feeding the
results into readers, apps, the cloud or
other software. Yet, for the less techie
types, nothing beats an old-fashioned
blood test diary.
Desang's diaries are £9 for a pack of
six. Each lasts one month (so a cost of
£1.50 per month). Use it to track foods
eaten, medicine, doses as well as results,
which can be traced on a graph. You can
flip the diary to see 'waves' of results on
the pages and spot trends of highs or
lows. The signal will never drop, and there's
no need to charge it!
