Type 2 Diabetes and Increased Risk for Heart Disease or Stroke
Type 2 diabetes is frequently associated with coexisting conditions such as increased weight, hypertension, and increased blood lipoprotein (fat/cholesterol) concentrations. People with type 2 diabetes have a higher risk for cardiovascular disease. Global studies show approximately a third of individuals with type 2 diabetes have cardiovascular disease.
We are conducting a research study that will be comparing a new investigational medication with insulin therapy for people with type 2 diabetes and excess weight who are at risk for heart disease or stroke.
You may be eligible if you:
- Are at least 18 years of age
- Have a BMI of 25 or higher
- Have type 2 diabetes with an HbA1c between 7 and 10.5
- Are taking at least one oral medication for diabetes
- Have or are at risk for heart disease, stroke, or other blood vessel diseases, or have kidney disease
There are additional criteria to meet to qualify for this study. Volunteers who qualify for our study will receive study-related medication and medical exams at no cost, along with a stipend for time and travel. No health insurance is required to participate.
