Adults with type 2 diabetes who had more than one insulin injection daily and continuous glucose monitoring for 24 hours experienced improved glycemic control, suggesting that this addition to diabetes management can potentially help patients, according to recent findings.“Whether [continuous glucose monitoring (CGM)] could also benefit adults with type 2 diabetes receiving insulin has not been well-studied, although substantially more insulin users have type 2 than type 1 diabetes, and glycemic control often remains suboptimal even with the use of insulin,” Roy W.
