Blood Glucose Monitoring Frequency Evaluation
As mentioned in Sect. 7.1, SMBG for people with Type 2 diabetes is commonly recommended and the efficacy of SMBG has been demonstrated in the SPA model. The hypothesis is based on the fact that self-management or lifestyle changes are facilitated by SMBG. The other hypothesis is that the samples can properly represent the CBG, and obviously, the more samples taken, the better the representation. However, the frequency of monitoring is an issue due to the related cost, discomfort and potential infection. There should be an optimal frequency of SMBG which supports an accurate representation of the CBG without excessive or oversampling.
