I just read this article about a study that showed that for people with type 2 diabetes who are NOT on insulin, testing blood sugar provided almost zero improvement in their A1c as compared to those who don't test at all.
This seems crazy to me. And it's not hard to imagine that insurance companies may decide that they shouldn't cover testing supplies if testing doesn't actually help achieve better blood sugar control.
I do see a few flaws in the research. It appears that they don't make any distinction between the type 2 who tests once per day and someone who tests multiple times per day.
But what do you all think? Does testing make a difference for you? Do you have better control because you test?
