Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is one of the important instruments in diabetes management. Most patients with type 1 diabetes and patients with type 2 using insulin, frequently measure their blood glucose in case of possible hypoglycemia, but also to evaluate the insulin treatment and get information about how to change the insulin regimen, if necessary. Without SMBG it is almost impossible to achieve this goal.
The purpose of this study is to determine if self-monitoring in patients with type 2 diabetes not using insulin results in better glycemic control.
Primary: What is the effect of SMBG in patients with type 2 diabetes who are not using insulin on Glycemic control (as measured with glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c)?
Secondary: What is the effect of SMBG in patients with type 2 diabetes who are not using insulin on the following parameters:
- Health status
- Diabetes related complaints
- Patient satisfaction
- Cumulative incidence of (necessity to start) insulin therapy / maximum dosage of oral blood glucose lowering drugs
- Dosage of oral blood glucose lowering drugs
- Bodyweight (BMI)
Two treatment protocols are proposed. Treatment A consists of self-monitoring of blood glucose and treatment B consists of usual care. Patients in the A-group are instructed to measure their blood glucose values 4 times a day (1 fasting plasma glucose concentration and 3 post-meal glucose concentrations), two times a week, on one week day, and one weekend day (no more, no less). Patients should record these glucose values in a diary. Patient will get one page with information in Dutch. No further education than for handling the device and interpreting the values is given, so that besides this intervention, there will be no differences compared with the control group like other forms of education.
The duration fo the trial will be 12 months.

Effect of Insulin Analogs on Frequency of Non-Severe Hypoglycemia in Patients with Type 1 Diabetes Prone to Severe Hypoglycemia: Much Higher Rates Detected by Continuous Glucose Monitoring than by Self-Monitoring of Blood Glucose-The HypoAna Trial.
Hypoglycemia is an increasingly important endpoint in clinical diabetes trials. The assessment of hypoglycemia should therefore be as complete as possible. Blinded continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) ...

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.
A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).
A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.
A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
