Version 3.14

Sunday, September 02, 2007 | 284 comment(s)

Some of you know about the Excel logbook I created a little over a year ago. While I was working remotely with Gary Scheiner, I needed to record my blood sugars in detail and email them to him on a regular basis. I started off using one of his logbooks designed in Microsoft Word, but that became cumbersome to work with. I had also recently (at the time) purchased a bunch of "My Other Checkbooks"
An Offer
I have 11 of these taking up space in a closet. If anyone would like to try them out, just drop me a line and they're yours.

to try out. And while I liked the notion of simultaneously graphing and recording blood sugar readings, the whole notion of actually having to draw the graph yourself seemed pretty implausible to me (I think I only drew one). Thus I started designing a logbook in Microsoft Excel. I was pretty familiar with Excel, I have a pretty close eye to consistent layout and details, and after several hours of work, the first version of my logbook was born.

I initially shared it with Scott,
Thank you
I think it's a coin toss whether Scott or Chrissie in Belgium is the biggest fan of the logbook. But no doubt, Scott flaunts it the most and fields a TON of requests for it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

close
and since then have shared it with almost 100 other folks in the Diabetes OC (and otherwise). The feedback I've received from the people I've shared this with has been incredibly, incredibly generous.

I can't say this enough: "You are all very, very welcome."
The feeling I get knowing that this little thing I created is helping folks deal with their diabetes is just about the best.

Because I'm a programmer by day and keep a lot of my work under version control,
Subversion
I'm pretty partial to Subversion as a version control software.

It's open source and free (nice). And with Tortoise SVN, it integrates directly with Windows Explorer (also nice). It works beautifully for small and large computer code projects (including web pages) as well as any other type of group project that evolves over time and that you might want to have record of *every* iteration you've gone through to get to your current version.

In programming (and web design, in particular), it is not uncommon to thoroughly break something while you're "improving" it. To have the ability to go back to your previous version and figure out what went wrong, is Invaluable.

Also, if you work collaboratively with a group of folks on a project and you're constantly naming your files with suffixes like "_kevin_090107" and then someone has to synchronize changes from multiple people into a single file, then version control software can save a ton of headaches.

In short:
"I love it, I love it, I love it, I love it!"


close
as things get updated, tweaked, and improved, I try to keep track of the changes and tag them. It's somewhat arbitrary when enough changes have accumulated and you decide to name a new version, or what name you give to the current version, but this one is a little cheeky/geeky (And Damn!, if that's not the best visualization for a mathematical constant I've ever seen!).

Previously, I had four summary charts produced for each week:
Weekday Hourly Average Bloodsugars ("Weekday Avg")

Weekday Lines ("Weekday Lines")

Weekend Hourly Average Bloodsugars ("Weekend Avg")

All Week Hourly Average ("Week Avg")


The major changes I've made to the logbook is to include three new charts:
All Week Line Chart ("Week Line")

Distribution of Readings by Time of Day ("Pie Time").


Distribution of All Readings ("Pie All")

If anyone would like this new version of my logbook, just ask (nicely). I'll be more than happy to send you a copy of it. (Oh yeah, I also have a version in mmol/l for our friends to the North, Down Under, or Across the Pond, so please let me know if you'd like it in that flavor).

While overall I'm pretty pleased with the logbook I created, I really wish that I had the skills and the time to develop something more along the lines of SugarStats or Diabetes Logbook X (for Mac users). If you haven't seen these yet, I encourage you to check these out as well.

There was a great quote by renowned author James S. Hirsch in the most recent DiaTribe that really rung my bell (DiaTribe is really worth checking out if you haven't seen it yet).

But if you believe that diabetes is an endless dance to the same old song, we now have some new partners who can engage, enrapture, and even awe us, long into the night.

-James S. Hirsch


Although he was talking about insulin pumps and CGM systems, I think that it can be extrapolated to logbooks (or practically any diabetes related product) as well. Mix it up, try new things, because we're going to be doing this for a long time. If you fall off the logbook wagon, try a new wagon. What ever works. Stamina is a big part of this game.

There are (of course) pros-and-cons with all of these logbooks but keeping track of blood sugars, exercise, carbohydrate intake, boluses, basal rates, and tracking patterns and keeping on top of or improving all of these is critical to "managing" your diabetes. Try one out. If it works for you, great. If not, find something else that works. If one works for a while and then starts to fizzle, try another one. Perhaps it'll know a new dance step or two to keep you going for a while longer.

Hey, Kevin. I've been using your log sheet for a while now and love it. It bowled over Olivia's CDE, too, which is always kind of cool. I'd love a copy of the New And Improved log.

if you'd be so kind. Thanks!

Blogger Chrissie in Belgium said...

Oh yes please, I would definitely like your newer version - you know I am a HUGE fan of your log sheets!!!!! You are just SO wonderful! THANK YOU KEVIN!

Blogger Lili said...

I would love to use it!

Kevin, you rock! Could I have a copy of version pi?

My endo loves you.

Blogger Christine-Megan said...

Hey Kevin, I love your logbook. I think it's awesome how well it works with averages and charts. I'd love to check out the new version. The Problem I have that's pushed me toward using LogBook X is that my endo wants to be able to see all of my insulin doses and all of my blood sugars without looking at just one day at a time. Otherwise I'd be all over it cause I like it better than I like LogBook X. You're so right about the James Hirsch quote applying. Thank you for providing this wonderful service to all of us.

Howdy,
I also would love to get my grubby cyberpaws on this new version. Hopefully it will rejuvenate my record-keeping habits, at least for a while.

Hi Kevin,

I've read about it, I've heard others rave about it, I've seen pictures of it, and I would love to have it. Yes, I'm talking about your Excel log. Any chance you would share it with me? I'ma pumper, an infrequent blogger and more infrequent logger, but hoping this might help me track and tweak. My e-mail is carol_ezell@hotmail.com Thanks!

Anonymous Sara said...

You are freaking amazing!!

About 6 months ago, my A1C went down a FULL POINT! When my endo asked me how, I said 'cause I started logging!

Forget helping us log, do you know how many peoples' health and life spans you have changed? Amazing!

So, about that new version... saraknic at sbcglobal dot net :)

Blogger Kevin said...

Julia & Jill: I am very glad that your CDE/endo loves the logbook -- but don't underestimate the hard work you've both done recording all your data -- these things are damn near worthless when they're empty!

Chrissie: YOU ARE WELCOME! I am so glad you like these so much!

Lili, Christine-megan, Travis, and Carol: A copy should be showing up in your in-boxes shortly.

And Sara: No way I'm taking any credit for your A1c dropping a FULL POINT. That's Awesome! It's all you.

Blogger Kevin said...

Oh yeah, and Lili: could you send me an email address to send it to?

Kevin -

I just stumbled upon your blog - I've tried (unsuccessfully) to come up with a spreadsheet to chart my BGs and was hoping you might share your Excel spreadsheet to yet another person :).

Keeping track in an old-school paper notebook has helped some just by going thru the routine to log the information...but would really like to chart/graph things out.

My UltraSmart does provide the ability to log exercise and meals, but I find it to be too awkward (feels too much like text messaging...and require that I get my specs on to work on the tiny screen !).

Thanks for what you do here...I'll be back.

Read about your digital logbook on SUM and it sounds great! My 9 year old daughter starts pumping insulin at month's end and I'd love to be able to see some of the success others are reporting on since they started using your logbook. I'd very much appreciate receving a copy in mmol version. Thanks so much,

Hey, Kevin. I stumbled upon your site by a post on the CWD pages. Your logs are interesting to me since our Endo doesn't like the software we currently use. I would like to explore more of yours if possible.

If I use the Dex, will this logsheet still help me? If so, what do I do? Do I pull numbers off of my Dex and enter them into the spreadsheet, or should I do a fingerstick each time? Are the graphs from the logsheet better than the ones from dex?
