Typical patients that may qualify for these studies will have some of the following factors:
Age: 18 and older
Diagnosis: Type 2 diabetes with Stage III to IV kidney disease
Medications: Oral diabetes medications like metformin or Actos. Injectable medications like daily insulin (basal and/or bolus) or once weekly injections.
Hemoglobin A1c: Typically, these studies require a hemoglobin A1c to be between 7 and 11%. We do have studies that have no lower limit for healthy diabetics to enroll too. It’s okay if you do not know your current A1c number. Contact our office to see how we can help figure out what your A1c is.
