Evaluation of Flash Continuous Glucose Monitoring to Reduce Hyperglycemia in People with T2 Diabetes
Principal Investigator: Thomas Martens, MD
Study Sponsor: Abbott Diabetes Care
Location: International Diabetes Center
Purpose of study: The goal of this study is to decrease the amount of time that a person with type 2 diabetes spends with blood glucose in high ranges through the use of a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system. The study will help participants focus on changing their food choices and other behaviors that can have an effect on glucose. All participants in the study will be provided with the FreeStyle Libre CGM system. This CGM system is FDA approved and currently available for use. It has a sensor that measures a person’s glucose level continuously. Participants in this study will either use the FreeStyle Libre CGM system alone, or in combination with a new smartphone app that is used to log and understand the effect of foods on glucose.
Inclusion Criteria: The study is accepting males and females ages 18 and older who:
• Have had type 2 diabetes for less than 5 years
• Are taking 1 or 2 medications (non-insulin) to treat their diabetes
• Have an A1C between 7.5- 9.5%
• Meet other study specific requirements
