Blood glucose meters are not necessary for people who do not have diabetes and in some cases can lead to an increase in eating disorders, leading doctors have warned.

It’s part of a diet promoted on social media and led by companies including Zoe.

But the NHS’s national diabetes advisor, Professor Partha Carr, said there was no strong evidence that the devices helped people who did not have high blood sugar levels.

In people with diabetes, blood sugar – also known as blood glucose – can remain high for several hours after eating. At very high levels, it can cause organ damage if not monitored and checked.
