When I was diagnosed in 1992, no mention of urine or visual testing was
done at ALL. I was only trained on the use of a meter.

I discovered the testape myself, and bought it for curiosity's sake. It
was a good thing, too, because I discovered that I have a very high
urine threshhold -- I don't spill until I'm over 240. 

I still think urine testing is good for those times when you suspect you
might have BEEN high, like during the night, and you want to see whether
you need to change your regimen. If you're spilling sugar in the
morning, then you know you need to spend an all-nighter or two! Which I
don't want to do unless absolutely necessary!
