Abstract

Key PointsQuestionFor adults with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes treated with basal insulin without prandial insulin in primary care practices, does continuous glucose monitoring improve hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels compared with blood glucose meter monitoring? FindingsIn a randomized clinical trial including 175 adults with type 2 diabetes, there was a significantly greater decrease in HbA1c level over 8 months with continuous glucose monitoring than with blood glucose meter monitoring (−1.1% vs −0.6%). MeaningContinuous glucose monitoring resulted in better glycemic control compared with blood glucose meter monitoring in adults with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes treated with basal insulin without prandial insulin.
