Thisallows the patient to relax and not have to memorize or carry along another books of nutritional data.The gray screen would provide visual text prompts for the next step, as well asoptional voice prompts for patients who may have a difficult time reading thescreen due to poor sight.The entire book would not only store all of the nutritional information of thefoods they consume but also the time and date of each dosing as well as their blood glucose level at the time. This would allow for easier management andthe ability to monitor more easily.The book would also have a place to hold your lancet (orange), extra teststrips, and blood glucose monitor (dark blue).
