What - hiding the other things so you can see trends easier?

Yep...haven't looked that 'far'.
Sadly.....I'm more basic when it comes to computers.
I don't have to do much more, at work

It's totally simple. Go to your page where your chart is. Under it, look for all of the different ranges with colors. It starts with ... fasting (with a little blue icon or cross type thing, then it has before breakfast, after breakfast, before lunch, etc. etc. Click on the word "fasting" or "before breakfast" and it hides that line. Go through and click on each one except for one of them. You can hide all times you logged blood sugar except one, so you can see a trend. If I click on each one except for fasting, I can see only fasting. You'll see - it's totally easy to do. Just click on them to make them appear or disappear.

Mary, even I am laughing at my silliness now.
Seriously, I saw those colourful icons for the first time this morning and thought....
hmm they made it look pretty.


I sometimes don't get it myself. I am curious about so many things, but I never think to click on things on the computer for fear of upsetting something, especially when I think I may go somewhere I'm not supposed to, unless its related to my work .

I totally understand. I've been working with computers for many years, so it's all good. There I am, right there.

Join the club, tish . . . I was trepidacious about it too. Then one day my son said 'Mom? You don't know enough to do any damage.' It isn't like I could accidentally get into the registry or anything . . .

I am new so I did not know the chart was new also. I was taking my BG at different times of the day and got so confused by all the lines. I just decided the other day to add my fasting, pre supper and post supper numbers. I need to get them more leveled out and seeing the on the chart is helping.

Shanny Im usually impressed with ALL the things you CAN do. All the little flags and time and weather and 'smileys' you come up with....just love them, but thanks so much for your kind and encouraging words. Always could count on you

Before getting this good tool, I tracked my BS readings in an Excel spreadsheet. I like this format better. I did, however have formulas to calculate running averages. Anyone else interested in seeing maybe a monthly overall average, or average for each category?

I like seeing the closeness of the points but seeing line points between the 50-100, 100-150 and so on would be nice. Not totally necessary but it would be nice to see at a glance that I am below say 130 and not just between 100 and 150.
