Without medication, managing your blood sugar can be a challenge.
Diabetes is a problem with your body that causes blood sugar levels to rise higher than normal.
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.
If you have type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t use insulin properly and has difficulty keeping your blood sugar at the right level.
Many people use medication to manage their blood sugar levels.
However, many try to manage their blood sugar with diet and exercise alone.
Doctors are studying an investigational medication
Local doctors are looking for people with diabetes for a clinical research study of an investigational medication. (Investigational means it isn’t approved for the public yet.)
If you qualify for this research study, you may have the opportunity to try this medication.
You may also receive study-related care at no cost, and compensation up to $740 for time and travel.
If you take part in the study, you may receive at no cost:
- A clinical study drug
- Study-related care
- Diet and exercise counseling
You may be eligible to participate if you:
- Are at least 18 years of age
- Have type 2 diabetes
- Have not taken medication for your diabetes
Health insurance isn’t required. The study doctor will assess other criteria to make sure that you’re eligible to participate.
