New on CTAN: diabetes-logbook
This is a package for keeps tabs on what one's eating, injecting, having serum-glucose-wise. It's seen 2 major revisions / rewrites, and is mostly intended for those with type one diabetes mellitus on manual injections and discrete blood glucose testing, i.e., teststrips. My physicians have always appreciated the .pdf's produced with this package, given the discrete, analog nature of manual everything-- I hope yours will too. It can promptly be edited to just be a journal, or collect and display other data, too.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/diabetes-logbook The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/diabetes-logbook/
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

diabetes-logbook – A logbook for people with type one diabetes
Initally a logbook for me, a person with type one diabetes mellitus, this evolved over time into a TeX project, making it prettier and/or easier to use. I’ve made it simple to use, while not forgoing the document’s beauty or the speed of input. The logbook, with slight commenting out and editing, could be used as a journal by anybody, although the template and graphing functionality are set up for people using insulin injections and blood glucose teststrips, as well as counting/estimating carbs, protein, and fat.
Note: The names of the package’s files are not constructed using the long “diabetes-logbook”, but the acronym “dmlb” (for “diabetes mellitus log book”).
