Aims: The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a weekly monitoring and interaction program using continuous glucose monitoring in a population of poorly controlled patients with type 2 diabetes.

Methods: This study was conducted in the outpatient clinical setting and examined levels of hemoglobin A1C and time in range glucose levels for 16 patients with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes as indicated by a hemoglobin A1C level of greater than 75 mmol/mol (10%). The intervention included use of a continuous glucose monitor (CGM)and weekly interactions either virtually or by telephone by one of the team members.

Results: After a 3 month period, hemoglobin A1C levels reduced from 95 mmol/mol (11.79%) to 52 mmol/mol (7.88%) (p<001) with 100% of the subjects achieving hemoglobin A1C of less than 75 mmol/mol (10%). There was no significant changes in the amount of additional diabetes medication or insulin dose.

Conclusions: The combination of continuous glucose monitoring and frequent interaction in a brief (three months) time frame may be a significant tool to improve glucose control in this high risk population.
