CenExel FCR is seeking adult volunteers living with diabetes to participate in our clinical trial.
Diabetes is a long-lasting (chronic) health condition affecting how the body turns food into energy. Most food consumed is broken down into sugar (or glucose) and released into the bloodstream. When the blood sugar level rises, this signals the pancreas to release insulin, which acts like a key to let the blood sugar into the body’s cells to use as energy.
Those who have diabetes either don’t make enough insulin or can’t use the insulin their body makes as well as they should normally. When there isn’t sufficient insulin or cells stop responding to insulin, too much blood sugar stays in the bloodstream, which can cause serious health problems over time, such as heart disease, vision loss, and kidney disease.
There is currently no cure for diabetes, but losing weight, eating healthy food, and being active can substantially help manage the condition. The lifelong impact of diabetes can be further reduced by taking medication as needed and receiving diabetes self-management support (and education). Learn more about diabetes from the CDC.
