The purpose of this study is to examine the effect CGM (continuous glucose monitoring) has on subjects with type 2 diabetes. It is anticipated that patients using the device will obtain tighter control of their blood sugars resulting in measureable health benefits and improved confidence in their ability to manage their diabetes.
