We hypothesize that two sessions of 10 days of real-time continuous glucose monitoring in the setting of nutrition and physical activity counseling coupled with education on how exercise and nutrition affect blood sugar levels will promote weight loss in participants with prediabetes and diabetes and reduce glycemic variability.
Aim 1: Examine the effect of two 10-day sessions of RT-CGM over 6 weeks on weight loss, change in body composition, activity level and nutritional changes in subjects with diabetes and prediabetes 12 weeks later.
Aim 2: Evaluate participants’ perception of RT-CGM as a weight loss tool.
Aim 3: Evaluate the effect of RT-CGM on glycemic variability in subjects with prediabetes and diabetes.
