Around one out of 11 people in the United States have type 2 diabetes. Often, people who are treated with insulin therapy can check their blood sugar with a finger stick at home. This is an accepted practice for monitoring the effects of insulin therapy. Diabetes is usually characterized by high blood glucose levels. The blood glucose testing using a finger-stick blood test may not offer a significant advantage in blood sugar control or improve the quality of life for a type 2 diabetes patient who is not treated with insulin.
