What have people said about the program?

The Type 2 Testing program has allowed me to test the effect that food has on my blood sugar and so lower my Hba1c readings to that of a normal person. My doctor and diabetic nurse had refused me test strips on prescription and said I didn't need them and it was a waste of tax payers money. I am now of medication, so surely that would have saved tax payers money as I get free prescriptions as a diabetic.

I have been able to test when I haven't felt well. It has also allowed me to track my glucose levels and keep my sugars under control.

Being able to test on a regular basis l now know which foods raise my glucose levels, which types of exercise are most beneficial and what l can indulge in on a night out.

Doctors are reluctant to prescribe testing strips and mine actively discourages testing saying it is 'obsessive'. I feel it is vital to keep track of blood sugar levels in order to reduce the possible complications, This programme has helped me to achieve reasonable control. Thank you.

It's been great It's kept me accountable and in control, I've lost a little weight and at my annual review in October all my test results were better than last year, doctor said carry on doing what you are doing!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Type 2 Testing Program and how does it work?

The Type 2 Testing Program is a subscription program where you receive test strips and lancets by post which you then use to test your blood glucose in order to self-monitor your diabetes and understand how food, diet, lifestyle choices and illness can all affect your blood glucose.

When you sign up for the Type 2 Testing Program, you receive a free blood glucose meter and subscribe to receive test strips each month, quarter or year. Your test strips will come with lancets.

By seeing the effects of food, lifestyle and illness, you should be able to make lifestyle choices which can help to reduce your average blood glucose levels and HbA1c.

The benefits of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) in type 2 diabetes highlighted in research papers include:

Better understanding of diabetes/more control

SMBG can help you to understand how your blood sugar levels respond to the food you eat, thus allowing you to make the necessary lifestyle adjustments needed to achieve your blood glucose targets and take control of your condition.

Reassurance & motivation

SMBG offers instant results and continuous feedback, which can be both reassuring and self-empowering.

Diabetes regression/remission

Improved blood sugar control through SMBG and subsequent informed diet and lifestyle choices could put your diabetes into remission, which may allow you to come off any diabetes medication you're taking.

Avoiding complications

Better blood sugar control can mean a considerable reduction in HbA1c levels, which in turn, lowers the risk of developing both macrovascular complications (including heart disease and stroke) and microvascular complications (including eye, kidney and nerve damage) of diabetes.

GP assistance

SMBG can help GPs make informed decisions based on their patient's results. For example, if you're experiencing hypoglycaemia (abnormally low blood glucose levels) once or twice a week, your doctor may decide to reduce a dose of a particular drug or switch you onto a different medication.

The effectiveness of SMBG depends on a number of factors, most notably your willingness and ability to use SMBG appropriately.

For example, you must:

- Possess the knowledge and skill to accurately perform SMBG and record test results and related events (manually or electronically)
- Know how to accurately interpret blood sugar readings to identify issues with your diabetes control and make appropriate changes to your lifestyle changes and drug treatment plan

This programme will help equip you with the knowledge and techniques to get you started with making sense of your blood glucose results and help you, together with your doctor, to make changes to your lifestyle and treatment regime.

Will my health improve by testing my blood glucose?

There is growing evidence that self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is hugely beneficial for individuals with type 2 who are not treated with insulin.

This evidence is based on studies that show SMBG can assist type 2 diabetics to better understand their condition and provide a means to actively and effectively participate in its control and treatment, and should therefore be considered as part of their ongoing diabetes self-management education.

You should use the results you obtain from your blood glucose tests to make lifestyle changes, if required, to help maintain blood glucose levels within recommended ranges.

Two large-scale studies - the UK Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS) and the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) - demonstrated that improving HbA1c by 1% (or 11 mmol/mol) for people with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes cuts the risk of microvascular complications by 25%.

When should I receive my blood glucose meter and/or test strips?

You will receive your free meter and test strips/lancets within 5 days of placing your initial order.

For quarterly subscriptions, you will subsequently receive your test strips within 5 days of the quarter end (as long as your payment details are processed successfully).

Annual subscription recipients will receive test strips and lancets for the following year within 5 days of their subscription anniversary.
