Does Flash improve blood sugar levels in people with type 1 diabetes?

Researchers are looking for people with type 1 diabetes to take part in a trial to find out if flash glucose monitoring improves blood sugar levels, compared to finger prick testing. 

To take part you need to be aged 16 or older with type 1 diabetes and have an HbA1c between 7.5%-11% (59-97mmol/mol). If eligible, you'll be randomly allocated to either use FreeStyle Libre 2 or finger-stick glucose monitoring for 6 months. Reasonable travel costs only will be reimbursed.

You may not be eligible to take part if you currently use FreeStyle Libre or continuous glucose monitoring (or have used for more than 4 weeks in the past 12 weeks), have complete loss of hypo awareness or have had more than one severe hypo in the past 24 weeks.

For more information please contact: Flash-UK@mft.nhs.uk or call 0161 276 6706 / 07792 063157 (between 9am-4pm) and ask to speak to a member of the FLASH-UK Study Team. 

This study is funded by Diabetes UK.
