Abstract

Management of HbA1c and fasting plasma glucose levels are key components of the management of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. However, a growing weight of evidence suggests that the management of post-meal blood glucose (PMBG) levels is also an important element of glycaemic control. Given this, healthcare professionals should be aware of how best to advise people with diabetes to implement PMBG testing. Based on the available evidence and their collective experience, the authors of this UK and Ireland consensus statement present practical recommendations regarding PMBG testing in people with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
