|NutriBase Supports Features for People with Diabetes|
|If you are a person with diabetes, you know that controlling blood glucose through diet can be a complicated affair. It is considerably more complicated than just counting carbohydrates. NutriBase helps simplify controlling your blood glucose levels by helping you see the relationships and ratios between various nutrients like protein, carbohydrates, and fats.
Keeping carbohydrates in balance with protein and fat (the "PCF ratio") is a major first step in controlling blood glucose. NutriBase provides this data for you. In additional, seeing how exercise and low glycemic carbohydrates relate to your blood glucose over time helps you understand these relationships. NutriBase helps you track and graph this important data and presents it in a visual form that makes it easier to visualize and understand.
The more you understand about nutrition and - even more importantly - how your body reacts to the foods you eat, the better able you are to control your blood glucose. NutriBase tracks and graphs your blood glucose along with your exercise calories and actual carbohydrates (and/or other nutrients). This gives you the feedback you need to optimize your eating patterns and control your condition effectively.
Meals with Meds. With NutriBase, you can record the brand name, type, and dosage of the medication(s) you take with a meal. After you eat the meal and measure your BG levels afterwards, you can open the recipe and tweak your medication information so that you may get better results the next time you eat this combination of foods and medicine. Over time, you are able to "dial in" your meds and build a library of meals that you can go to when you need to eat without doing a lot of pre-planning. This simple feature can help you take charge of your disease and manage it more effectively.
It is a well-know fact that regular exercise can also help you control your blood glucose. NutriBase helps you track and graph the calories you expend in a very wide range of exercise over time.
Toma Grubb - a person with type 2 diabetes and author of "Toma's Diabetic Diet - a Layman's Guide to Controlling Blood Glucose with Diet" - tells how he uses NutriBase software to get his blood glucose controlled so well that he is maintaining sub 6% A1C - without the need for medications. He discusses his near death experience and his techniques for dealing with diabetes.
