Type II Diabetes Study

Upcoming Study

We are evaluating the changes in haemoglobin A1c (a component of your blood, that is tested for diabetes) from a probiotic when given to people suffering from Type II Diabetes

Eligibility criteria:

  • Be aged 18-75
  • Have a BMI between 25-45
  • Have Type II Diabetes treated with:
  • - Exercise + Diet OR
  • - Exercise + Diet + Metformin

WHAT IS INVOLVED:

  • Take the probiotic supplement twice daily for 12 weeks
  • Attend 7 visits to our clinic
  • Wear a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) for duration of study
  • Perform a Standardised Tolerance Test (STT)

Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) is a method to track glucose levels throughout the day and night. The CGM contains a small sensor wire that is places just under the skin to measure your glucose. It stores these readings, which can then be transferred wirelessly to a remote device.

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 3 blood draws over the course of 2 hours for the test, taking a total of 25.5mLs of blood. One blood draw before you consume the probiotic, with other draws taken at 60 and 120 minutes after consumption
You will be cannulated on Visits 2-6
