Figure 1 Forty adolescents with type 2 diabetes were screened and eligible for participation in the “Buddy Study”. Ten adolescents were enrolled in the study, of whom five were randomized to the intervention arm and paired with a buddy. The remaining five adolescents were randomized to the standard care group and were not paired with a buddy. Five adolescents (three randomized to the buddy group and two to the conventional arm) returned to the clinic for both 3- and 6-mo follow-up visits and six adolescents completed the six month study.
