Ran across this recent article at the Health Behavior News Service (HBNS) website:
The article basically claims that there is no real benefit to self-testing long term for diabetics not on insulin.
To quote the article “For type 2 diabetics who are not on insulin, monitoring their blood sugar does little to control blood sugar levels over time and may not be worth the effort or expense, according to a new evidence review.”
I know that daily multiple testing for me was the only way I could discover what did what to my BG levels. Even to the point of what brand of delivery pizza spiked me the most (oh, I so miss pizza). Is it possible that once you have things under control, testing is really only a confirmation to what we already know?
I’ll reserve my own opinion, but the article and comments that follow it made for some interesting points I thought.
