Diabetes & Obesity

Diabetes Concept

We group these sets of studies together, as it is not uncommon for these conditions to occur in the same person. In fact, in the 1990’s the US Surgeon General coined the term “diabesity” as an observation that growing rates of obesity in the US are closely linked with increasing rates of Type II diabetes.

In 2011, the CDC estimated that 26 million Americans had diabetes (compared to 23.6 million in 2008) with 11.3% of Americans over the age of 20 affected by the condition.  In 2011, the NCHS estimated that 35.7% of US adults were obese. Obesity is a leading factor in the prevalence of many chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and cancer and a significant contributor to mortality rates from preventable diseases.

If you have been diagnosed with Diabetes, you may be interested to determine if you qualify for one of our studies in this area.

We have recently closed our studies on Diabetic Neuropathy and our study for Obesity.  Come back to check if we get new studies in these areas in the future.
