“There were so many things to take into consideration when caring for my husband’s diabetes, medicine, appointments, diet, exercise, complications, etc… I wish I’d had everything right in front of me, that’s why I created Diabetes Trakker. I wanted to take the pressure off other families caring for their loved ones and create the best personal medical record keeper you can find.” Said author Amber Bowden.
Diabetes can be the source of so many health complications.

As we all know, accurate medical record keeping is essential in caring for a loved one, or ourselves but there’s also other personal information that’s very important especially when a patients health condition is chronic or takes a turn for the worse.
