Don't Expect All Diabetes Patients to Regularly Monitor Blood Sugar

Experts will continue to debate how often patients with type 2 diabetes should check their blood sugar.

Evidence is mixed about whether routine blood sugar checks help most type 2 diabetes patients reach their blood sugar goals or reduce the risk of dangerously low blood sugar. Plus testing supplies can be costly...and results aren't often used to make changes.

On the other hand, advocates say that monitoring can help patients see the impact of meds and lifestyle changes (exercise, etc).
