Great Lakes Clinical Trials is now recruiting volunteers for a clinical research study to assess the effects of a nutritional shake on glucose values for patients with Type 2 Diabetes.
To qualify, you must be:· be 30 years old or older· be taking oral diabetes medications· have an HbA1C value between 7-10%. We will perform a finger stick measurement at your first visit to confirm, or in case you are not aware of your HbA1c value.
You will stay on your current diabetes treatment during the course of the study.
Study DesignThe study will be conducted in two phases over 14 consecutive days.· During the first phase (Days 1-6), you will be asked to wear the continuous glucose monitor and follow and track your typical diet and lifestyle behavior. As part of your normal diet, you'll be encouraged to consume two snacks of your choosing in mid-morning and mid-afternoon.· During the second phase (Days 7-14), you'll be randomized to one of the three interventions, which include continuing your normal diet or supplementing a meal of snack with a nutritional shake, provided by the clinic.
Study CommitmentThere will be three visits to our clinic on Day 1, Day 6 and Day 14. · The first visit may last up to 90 minutes. After receiving your study information and obtaining your consent to proceed, we will perform a fingerstick HbA1C measurement to determine if your values are in the acceptable range to participate in the study. If your HbA1c levels fall between 7 and 10% we will continue the visit to evaluate your health to participate in the trial. If not, you will not be able to continue in the study. During this first visit we will place a continuous glucose monitor on the back of your upper arm.· The second and third visits may last up to an hour. · There will be a phone call 2-7 days after the study for safety follow-up.
Qualified participants will receive:
· Study related care and office visits at no cost. Insurance is not required
· Investigational study medication at no cost
