A New Direction for CGM Use in Type 2 Diabetes: Evidence from the MOBILE Study

Presenter: Grazia Aleppo, MD, FACE, FACP
Sponsored by: Dexcom.

Program Description:
Real-time Continuous glucose monitoring (RT-CGM) has been shown to be beneficial for adults with type 2 diabetes using intensive insulin therapy, but its use in type 2 diabetes treated with basal insulin, without prandial insulin, has not been well studied. The MOBILE study was designed to determine the effectiveness of the Dexcom G6 CGM system in those adults living with type 2 diabetes treated with basal insulin without prandial insulin, specifically in the primary care setting.

In this presentation we’ll share an overview of research supporting the use of RT-CGM and present a more in-depth review of recent evidence from the MOBILE study. We will also discuss how to interpret CGM reports using Dexcom CLARITY software. Finally, we’ll present 2 case studies to demonstrate CGM use in people living with type 2 diabetes.
