Aloha everyone! You may save these free downloads for your personal use.

Let me tell ya, as a designer, it sucks when I discover an image of mine on social media or online and no credit was given. So, please be kind and show your appreciation. I work really hard on everything you may have seen. I don’t get paid to run this blog, in fact I pay a subscription to WordPress to maintain it. I also don’t get paid to advertise any of the items you’ve seen on my blog or social media. I am literally working for free just so I can keep spreading awareness and educating others. Thanks for your understanding and support. Have a good glucose day!

Per my post on Instagram in January 2021 regarding Coral’s Bolus Charts, I received many requests to make a template available. Please discuss it with your healthcare team to customize the timing of the pre-bolus depending on your needs and various favorite foods. This will definitely take weeks or months to experiment with same foods and lots of note taking on your part. Click the Google Drive download link here to save, edit, print and share with your caregivers or school nurse. A sample of Coral’s Bolus Charts are shown below of how we typically bolus for her favorite foods. I highly suggest updating your or your child’s bolus charts as their insulin needs will likely increase as they grow older.
