Detailed profiles of fluctuations in glucose obtained via continuous glucose monitoring highlight the complexity of glucose regulation and underscore that the definition of type 2 diabetes mellitus as a homogeneous disease is an oversimplistic approximation for a heterogeneous metabolic disorder. Whether better phenotyping would ultimately result in improved interventions and outcomes, however, remains largely unproven.
