Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria: 

1.Subject is age 7-75 years at time of Screening
2.Subjects 14-75 years of age: A clinical diagnosis of type 1 diabetes for 2 years or more as determined via medical record or source documentation by an individual qualified to make a medical diagnosis
3.Subjects 7-13 years of age: A clinical diagnosis of type 1 diabetes for 1 year or more as determined via medical record or source documentation by an individual qualified to make a medical diagnosis Study-specific inclusion criteria
4.Subject is willing to perform ≥ 4 finger stick blood glucose measurements daily
5.Subject is willing to perform required sensor calibrations
6.Subject is willing to wear the system continuously throughout the study
7.Subject must have a minimum daily insulin requirement (Total Daily Dose) of greater than or equal to 8 units
8.Subject has a Glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) less than 10% (as processed by Central Lab) at time of Screening visit Note: All HbA1c blood specimens will be sent to and tested by a NGSP certified Central Laboratory.
