Study Summary

This RCT aims to improve T1D care in East African children and young adults by testing the hypothesis that enabling patients to continuously monitor glucose levels with flash CGM technology will improve glucose time-in-range (glucose level 70-180 mg/dl). After a 2 week assessment with blinded CGM when a potential subject's ability to wear CGM is confirmed, subjects will be enrolled a 12 month study, with the primary endpoint at 6 months. All subjects will receive monthly diabetes self-management education. Half of patients (n=90) will be given an unblinded FreeStyle Libre 2 CGM for the entire 12 months. They will be able to see their glucose levels in real time. Half (n=90) will be given sufficient test strips for 3x daily SMBG while wearing blinded CGM for 6 months (control group). They will switch to unblinded CGM months 6-12.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
