The above image is showing the opening screen of the program. This is where you will begin each time you start the program.
From the above screen you will create your database(s). You can create as many databases as you need, there is no limit.
Once you have created all of the databases you require you need to open one of them for data entry.
The Current Reading screen. From here you will perform most of the operations necessary to maintain your database. Notice the extra fields for Insulin Log information, SPO2, and Temperature.
Above is the Configure Injection Sites window. The Configure Insulin Names screen is identical. Using these screens you can enter all the different insulin types you use and all of the injection sites you use. When you add or edit readings you will be able to select the names and sites using the new pull-down list boxes. This feature should speed-up the data entry process, eliminating the need to hand type all of the information. Of course, if you prefer to hand type the entries, that option is still available. (Each person using the program makes their own lists.)
The above image shows you the date selection function of the Add Readings function of the program. You can select any date within the range of 1/1/2000 to 12/31/2099 so if you have old readings dating back to the year 2000 they can be entered for safekeeping. (Notice the new pull-down list boxes for entering insulin information.)
The image above demonstrates the time selection feature of the Add Readings screen. Since date and time selection is critical to the sorting function of the program you will have to select a time, to the nearest 15 minutes, from the pull-down list box provided.
Using the Search function of the program you can look for readings for a specific date. The first reading for the date you entered will be displayed on the Current Reading screen. The Next and Previous buttons can then be used to locate the exact reading you are looking for.
Above notice the Print To Screen function of My Daily Readings. If you cannot find the exact reading you are looking for, by using the search function, this function is your answer. This screen is for display purposes only. Printing begins with the reading displayed on the Current Reading screen. The Comment field is printed to this screen but is omitted from the printed report unless you have actually entered comments.
The image above shows the Print Insulin Log to Screen window.
Like all good programs, My Daily Readings comes complete with a fully integrated help system. The only requirement is that you have Internet Explorer 3.02 or higher installed on your system. Since Internet Explorer has been coming with windows for quite some time there shouldn't be any problems in this area.
The graph above shows the relationship between the blood sugar readings and the time of day the readings were taken.
The image above is an example of the new line graphs introduced in version 3.5. Both the bar graphs and line graphs in version 3.80 have been changed to display only the readings which meet the requirements of the graph thus eliminating the gaps seen in the version 1.5 graphs. Also, if you like printing your graphs the new line graphs will save a considerable amount of ink or toner!
There are 30 other graphs, not pictured, which are related to blood sugar, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, pulse, weight, SPO2, and temperature.
The above image shows you what the printed Insulin Injection Log looks like. The information printed on the log report comes directly from data you entered while using the program. You will never need to fill out blank log sheets again!
Above is an example of the standard report you will be able to print from My Daily Readings. This example does not show all of readings but they would be printed if you entered them.
The image above shows the new summary page for this version of My Daily Readings. In past versions the summary page showed only the highest, lowest, and average readings for each category but now the summary page displays the highest and lowest AM and PM readings with the date and time for each of those readings, plus the average Am and PM readings. There is one additional page for SPO2 readings that is not shown.
