Organizing Your Diabetes Medications
Need some help staying on top of your diabetes regimen? Start here.
More than 80 percent of people living with diabetes take pills or insulin. But the more prescriptions you have, the harder it can be to keep track of them all and take them on time. Using written medicine tracker can help. Keep the tracker with your calendar or daily planner. This way, you can remember to take your medicines at the same time every day.
American adults are given an average of 12 prescriptions per year. A medicine log can help you keep track of all of the medicines you take each day, including those over-the-counter medicines and supplements you take regularly. Bring the log to your doctor or diabetes educator the next time you visit. Your healthcare provider can answer any questions you have. She can also determine if any of your medicines interact with each other.
