Note that I'm referring to non-insulin users, because if you're not
injecting insulin that removes one very important high priority need

NIDDM T2s don't need to test their BGs at all, and in fact shouldn't,
because it would just worry them unnecessarily.

There he goes again. Chris the ADhAter. Methinks he wears that title
as a badge of courage and polishes it with a smug look on his face as
he types his now almost daily misrepresentations.

On the first page a T2 would go to on the ADA site "Diabetes Basics" >
"Type 2" ther is a big closeup picture of a person pricking their
finger to get a drop of blood for testing.

On that same page, as one of the main categories, there is a link to
click that says "Checking Your Blood Glucose" which says right at the
top:

"?All people with diabetes can benefit from checking their blood
glucose.
?Using a meter is the most accurate way to check.
?Keep a log of your results and review them with your team to gauge
how well your diabetes plan is working.
Blood glucose monitoring is the main tool you have to check your
diabetes control. This check tells you your blood glucose level at any
one time. Keeping a log of your results is vital. When you bring this
record to your health care provider, you have a good picture of your
body's response to your diabetes care plan."
