Impact of App Based Diabetes Training Program in Conjunction With the BD Nano Pen Needle in People With T2 Diabetes

2019-09-20 03:46:49 | BioPortfolio


This is a multi-center, open-label, parallel-group, randomized controlled study in subjects with type 2 diabetes using multiple daily injection (MDI) insulin therapy. Subjects will be randomized to either receive the DC App and BD Nano 2nd Gen pen needles (intervention) or continue their standard of care using their current pen needle and diabetes management (control). The study will consist of four visits and two scheduled phone calls across a total of 10 weeks.


At Visit 1 (Day -14) site staff will screen and enroll qualified subjects, provide a BGM (Accu-Chek Guide) and attach a blinded flash glucose sensor (Libre Freestyle) to the back of the arm. Subjects will complete any applicable baseline Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) questionnaires and be sent home with no changes to their current therapy. While at home Subjects will be asked to test blood glucoses using the provided BGM and continue their usual insulin dosing before returning to clinic for Visit 2. Visit 2 will consist of randomization (Interventional Group or Control Group). The control group will be continued on their current pen needle and receive standard visit education as needed. The intervention group will be trained on the use of the DC App and be switched to BD Nano 2nd Gen pen needle. During weeks 3 through 8, subjects in both groups will continue their usual insulin routine, with the control group adhering to their usual practice of managing their diabetes and the intervention group utilizing the DC app for relevant educational content and tips plus using the BD Nano 2nd Gen for all insulin injections. During Visit 3 subjects will get a 2nd fGM sensor placed and be instructed to continue their insulin routine for the final 2 weeks. Visit 4 is the last visit where subjects will have their fGM removed, return the BGM, complete applicable PRO surveys, an injection technique questionnaire and be discharged.
