Summary: Retrospective data suggests that for adults with type 2 diabetes who are not on insulin and have stable glycemic control, avoiding excessive testing of hemoglobin A1C levels may be associated with a lower risk of unwarranted treatment intensification (in other words, excessively frequent testing of hemoglobin A1C levels may lead to treatment intensification beyond what is recommended in current guidelines).
