Type I and Type II Diabetes

Type I and Type II Diabetes

Millions of people across the U.S. have been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. Living with this illness can be challenging and difficult. At Advanced Research Institute, we are accepting volunteers to participate in a clinical research study to test new drugs to fight diabetes. Clinical trials will be held in Sandy and Ogden, Utah, and Reno, Nevada.

What Is Type 1 Diabetes?

Type 1 diabetes is not caused by lifestyle choices; it is believed to be an autoimmune disorder possibly triggered by a virus. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in childhood. It occurs in people whose bodies can’t produce insulin. Without insulin, your body can’t process sugar into energy, which can be fatal.

Those diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes must monitor their blood sugar regularly and take insulin shots. Children in particular suffer pain from these daily injections, and drug companies are always searching for other ways to manage diabetes.

What Is Type 2 Diabetes?

With Type 2 diabetes, the body makes too much blood sugar instead of not enough. Many people who have Type 2 diabetes are unaware of it. Symptoms include increased thirst and hunger, unintended weight loss and blurred vision.

While both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes have hereditary factors, weight and activity level play a role in developing and managing Type 2 diabetes. Unmanaged Type 2 diabetes can lead to heart and kidney problems, nerve damage, eye damage and dementia.

Diabetes Clinical Trials

Both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes can be fatal. Living with diabetes on a daily basis means close monitoring of food, insulin and medicine intake. Mistakes can lead to mental confusion and loss of consciousness.

When a new drug has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for testing, our clinical trial company recruits volunteers and works with them through the study. If you have been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes and take insulin or oral medication daily, you may be eligible to participate in our clinical trials.

Benefits of Participating in Diabetes Clinical Trials

When you participate in our diabetes clinical trials, you receive free medical care, including doctor’s visits and hospital tests. Neither the participant nor their insurance company is billed for any of the medical care you receive as part of the study.

As a volunteer for clinical research, you get to be one of the first people to try a new diabetes drug. If it works, you will have helped bring this drug to millions of patients who need it.
