Meaningful test results for better therapy adjustments and glycemic control The use of the structured and effective diabetes management concept with the individual pattern analysis, as applied in the STG arm of the study with the Accu-Chek 360 Degree View 3-day profile tool, can lead to substantially improved medical outcomes in poorly-controlled non-insulin treated people with type 2 diabetes, which are clinically meaningful. Since the STG protocol puts emphasis on when patients test and how healthcare professionals make clinically relevant use of this data supported by the Accu-Chek tools of Roche Diabetes Care, it may be appropriate to pay particular attention to increased SMBG quality and to how test results are used. Integrating structured SMBG into a collaborative program of care and hence the therapy routines of non-insulin treated people with type 2 diabetes can therefore lead to an improved doctor-patient interaction, supporting informed therapy adjustments and resulting in a better glycemic control.
