Glucose Response Study

Final Few Spaces

We are investigating if a fig extract can help reduce the blood glucose response after eating

Eligibility criteria:

  • Must be aged between 18-55 years old
  • Have a BMI between 25.0-29.9
  • Have good veins - Essential as there is a number of blood draws
  • Must be available on either Wednesdays or Thursdays for visits


  • 6 visits to our clinic, 5 of which would require you to be on site for 3-4 hours
  • Study takes place over 6 weeks
  • An Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) will be performed on 5 of the visits

This test measures your body’s response to sugar (glucose). The test involves inserting a cannula, which is a a thin tube that allows for a number of blood draws without the need to insert additional needles each time.
There will be 7 blood draws over the course of 2 hours for the test, taking a total of 60mLs of blood.
Please be aware that good veins are essential to take part in the study, so if you have previously had issues getting you blood taken, you will not be eligible.
