Diabetes is a problem with your body that causes blood sugar levels to rise higher than normal. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. If you have type 2 diabetes, your body doesn't use insulin properly and has difficulty keeping your blood sugar at the right level.
Many people use medication to manage their blood sugar levels. However, many try to manage their blood sugar with diet and exercise alone.
Local doctors are looking for people with diabetes for a clinical research study of an investigational medication. (Investigational means it isn't approved for the public yet.)
If you qualify for this research study, you may have the opportunity to try this medication. You may also receive study-related care at no cost, and compensation up to $500 for time and travel.
