Abstract

In T2DM subjects who had already reached their A1C goal, pp-SMBG at least twice a day was associated with further improvement in glycemia, lipids, and weight, as well as exercise and dietary habit. We assume that lifestyle modification promoted by postprandial hyperglycemia awareness may underlie these findings. These results substantiate the importance of implementing pp-SMBG into lifestyle modification, and emphasize that pp-SMBG is critical in the control of T2DM.
