Blood Glucose Logbook

Keep a daily record of your blood glucose monitoring in a logbook. Ask your healthcare provider for one if you do not already have one, or download one from our Educational Literature page.

  • Write down your glucose levels in the space provided.
  • Write down your medication dose, especially any changes in your medication.
  • In the note or comment section, write down changes in food, activity, illness, stress, or insulin reactions.
  • Bring your logbook to all your appointments with your diabetes healthcare providers so they can assess your diabetes control.
  • Continue to use your logbook even if you're traveling or are on vacation.


The BD Diabetes Learning Center describes the causes of diabetes, its symptoms, and diabetes complications such as retinopathy and neuropathy. This site contains detailed information about blood glucose monitoring, insulin injection and safe sharps disposal.
