Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Intervention
FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System
Device: FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System

Subjects will wear the FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System masked for 14 days followed by 8 weeks unmasked wear.

During the 2 weeks of masked device wear participants will use the BG strip port for self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG). Scanning the sensor at least every 8 hours during this phase.

Followed by 8 weeks of unmasked device wear when participants will use the device (Sensor glucose and SMBG) according to labelling for their day to day management.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Time in Range [ Time Frame: Baseline and days 56 to 70 ]
    Time in range (Sensor glucose 3.9-10.0 mmol/L [70-180 mg/dL]) in days 56-70 minus time in range at baseline (days 1-15).
