Clinical research trials are essential to guide the development of new medications that improve control of your diabetes, or improve the health care of others.
Research in Type 2 diabetes is being conducted by our group at the University of Adelaide and SAHMRI, and aims to investigate the way sugars enter the blood (from our food), and whether these pathways in the gut can be targeted in new ways to further improve control of blood sugar levels.
You will be required to attend our clinic at the Royal Adelaide Hospital on 3 separate occasions, with one short visit and two visits of 4 hours duration. Volunteers are required to consume a beef lasagne meal (provided) prior to each visit, and to take an oral capsule 3 times a day between each visit. Capsules will contain either artificial sweeteners or a placebo.
