NICE explains that self-monitoring of blood glucose levels for adults with type 2 diabetes should not be offered unless the person is on insulin, or there is evidence of hypoglycaemic episodes, or the person is on oral medication that may increase their risk of hypoglycaemia while driving or operating machinery, or the person is pregnant, or is planning to become pregnant. When starting treatment with oral or intravenous corticosteroids, or when confirming suspected hypoglycaemia, short-term self-monitoring of blood glucose levels in adults with type 2 diabetes should be considered.
