Diabetes is one of the most common illnesses encountered by internists. An estimated 23.6 million persons have diabetes in the United States, and only 17.9 million of these cases have been diagnosed1.
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it isn't able to keep up and can't make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels.
If you suffer from type 2 diabetes, you may qualify for a research study assessing the safety and efficacy of an investigational treatment for this condition.
Qualified participants will be compensated for time and travel. Study medications and study related care are provided at no cost, without the need for health insurance.
