ABSTRACT
The article presents a clinical study that reveals self-monitoring of blood glucose levels did not improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. A randomized controlled trial was conducted on 453 diabetics in England. The patients were managed with diet and oral glycemic agents and observed within 12 months . It is indicated that the patients did not differ for change in glycated hemoglobin level, blood pressure, weight, body mass index and cholesterol.
