I Made A Resource For A Pre-Diabetic Friend

The other day, a friend of mine asked if I could make her some charts she could print off and put into her bullet journal.

She was recently diagnosed as ‘pre-diabetic’. Meaning that she may have a form of diabetes but they’re not sure what sort and how serious it is.

So, right now, she’s using a blood-sugar record several times a day. For ‘use’ read ‘stab self in finger’. Yeah, not fun, but necessary.

As I’m a graphic designer by trade, creating the charts wasn’t too much of an issue for me. Below is am image of what I made. I included boxes for symptoms my friend might be experiencing when she takes the reading.

I sent it to her as an A4-size PDF file, so she can print off copies, fold and tear and have several A5 sheets to go in her journal.

I’m attaching the PDF file to this post, at my friend’s request. She thinks this might be helpful to others who are in a similar situation. And I have to admit that it felt good to be able to help her in some way. She already has several other medical conditions to grapple with. Having this diagnosis from her doctor is yet more stress, and it hasn’t been fun for either of us. I’m hopeful that she can get the information she needs to get this under control.
