Pumpers on the average test 6.9 times per day. See:


A reasonable test regimen is:

upon waking
before meals AND snacks
2-3 hours after a meal
when feeling an impending high or low
when high or low, every 30 minutes until in range
before driving or operating heavy machinery
every hour while driving or operating heavy machinery
before bed

A medical professional would have a hard time arguing that any of the 
above are not necessary for good control.
