Study shows no benefits with finger-prick blood tests (SMBG) Type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients think regular usage of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) can keep their blood sugar levels under control. Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is a procedure which involves finger-prick blood test to read blood sugar levels from an instrument. Expected benefits with the usage of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) methods are

A study done by researchers at the University of North Carolina, United States shows no benefits to type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes patients with routine blood glucose testing or finger-prick blood tests. Researchers conducted studies to find out improvement in hemoglobin A1c levels and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) with self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) procedure among 450 type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes patients with an average age of 61 years. Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) procedure being followed by about 75 percent of patients. Duration of the study was 1 year.

At the end of the study, the study results shows no significant difference in health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and hemoglobin A1c levels with the usage of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG). The study also shows no difference in the incidents of hospitalizations, emergency visits, low blood sugar levels (or hypoglycemia) and instances of starting insulin therapy during the study period. No benefits with the usage of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) and the costs may outweight the benefits. Senior author of the study was Dr Katrina Donahue, at the School of Medicine, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, United States. The study findings were published in the JAMA Internal Medicine, under the title Glucose Self-monitoring in Non-Insulin-Treated Patients With Type 2 Diabetes in Primary Care Settings.
