Evans J, Mackison D, Swanson V, Donnan PT, Emslie-Smith AM & Lawton J (2013) Self-monitoring of blood glucose in type 2 diabetes: Patients' perceptions of 'high' readings. Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice, 102 (1), pp. e5-e7. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.diabres.2013.07.011
Among 207 non-insulin using patients with type 2 diabetes in Tayside, Scotland, who self-monitored blood glucsoe, we present evidence that many are tolerant of higher blood glucsoe levels that are clinically advisable; this may explain the lack of empirical evidence for the clinical benefits of self-monitoring in this group.
