Your link just shows how they can skew the results they want by organising a meaningless test. They all tested just once a day and so that told them nothing at all of any use. The idea of testing is to test the foods that affect your BG therefore is only of use when people know when to test and how to interpret the results otherwise of course it is both meaningless and stressful. Teach people to test before and after meals to see which foods spike them and therefore gives them the tools to use and how to use the information and of course as many here will testify, it can transform your life and put you in control of your condition. I wasn't given a meter nor test strips but after seeing it advised on here I would say it's the best thing I ever did. Doc would have had me on metformin and statins and on the downward spiral to insulin but instead I am feeling fitter and healthier than I did twenty years ago. They are right it is pointless giving meters and strips and restricting to once a day but teach people to keep a food diary and tat before and after meals for a few months and you'd have far less diabetics on that downward slope.
