Official Trial Title
Short Use of Automated Insulin Delivery (AID) for Basal Insulin Titration in Type 2 Diabetes: A Pilot Study
Study Description

Setting basal insulin parameters typically takes several weeks and requires frequent calls with your treating physician. The purpose of this study is to see if using an insulin pump could assist, and potentially accelerate, identifying the correct basal rates for you to better manage your type 2 diabetes. This is a randomized study so you will not get to choose which group you are assigned to. This is a randomized study so you will not get to choose which group you are assigned to. Some people enrolled in the study will use an insulin pump to adjust their insulin basal rates, and other people will contact the study physician to adjust their insulin basal rates. Both groups will wear a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) during the study. A CGM measures your blood glucose values every 5 minutes and provides you with a real-time look at your blood glucose readings.

You may be eligible for this study if:
• you are 18 years of age or older
• have a clinical diagnosis of type 2 diabetes for at least 1 year
• currently using an approved long-acting insulin for at least six months (e.g., insulin glargine, insulin degludec)

Study related supplies will be provided to you at no cost (e.g., insulin pump and its supplies, CGM supplies, blood glucometer and strips, ketone meter and strips, etc.). The study will take about 30 days to complete the study.

We want to assure you that we will keep your information confidential. You do not have to be in this study if you do not want to participate. Your decision to be in any study is totally voluntary. Your care at UVA will not be altered by your decision to participate or not participate.
