How Much Is Enough? Testing Your Blood Sugar in Type 2 Diabetes, Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health

Ottawa & Toronto, Ontario
November 30 & December 1, 2010

People with type 2 diabetes are often advised to test their blood sugar every day or several times a week. But does all this self-testing really improve their health?

Not according to the latest research. The evidence shows that people who don’t use insulin can self-test less often without negatively impacting their health.

Join us to talk about this research and what it means. You can ask a question, share an opinion, or just listen in a relaxed atmosphere.
