This retrospective analysis examined the association between change in A1C and professional continuous glucose monitoring (p-CGM) use in patients with type 2 diabetes and poor glycemic control who were not using insulin. Data from 15,481 eligible patients (p-CGM users n = 707 and p-CGM nonusers n = 14,774) showed a greater decrease in A1C from baseline to the end of follow-up for p-CGM users, and differences favored p-CGM users regardless of whether they started insulin therapy during the follow-up period. These findings suggest that people with type 2 diabetes who have poor glycemic control using multiple noninsulin therapies may benefit from p-CGM, which can reduce A1C over a 6-month period compared with usual care.
