ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efficacy of self monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) in patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes on their glycemic index. Randomized controlled trials conducted on 84 diabetics, revealed that SMBG did not improve glycemic control but increased depression in patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes. It also mentions that SMBG is not cost-effective as supplies for SMBG are expensive and account for 60% of drug and device expenditures for type 2 diabetes.
