The objective of the study is to investigate the effect of a specific frequency of
Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) on glycemic control and quality of life in patients
with type 2 diabetes and who are in stable good glycemic control and using 1 insulin
The research question is:
Does a less intensive frequency of SMBG in insulin-treated patients with type 2 diabetes, who
are in stable good glycemic control, using 1 insulin injection daily, lead to a clinically
relevant increase of HbA1c (an increase of 0.5%) and what is the effect on quality of life?
The secondary objectives is to investigate the effect of a specific frequency of SMBG on the
number of hypo and hyper glycaemia, number of extra diabetes-related contacts with the health
care provider, and the diabetes medication.
