Weight Loss Study for People with Type 2 Diabetes

(Volunteers for research)

Suzanne Kuker

The MUSC Weight Management Center is conducting a 52-week research study to evaluate the effectiveness of a weight loss program modified for people with Type 2 diabetes.

No medication is given to participants in this study.

To qualify, you must have Type 2 diabetes, be between the ages of 18 and 70 years, overweight, not have significant illness or disease (such as heart disease), not be taking any medications for weight loss, and meet other criteria.

Qualified participants will be asked to attend six assessment visits, and will receive different degrees and types of weight management counseling, as well as medical exams, lab work, and weight monitoring.

There is no charge for participation. This study requires a commitment of a little more than 52 weeks.

To have more information sent to you, fax a request to the Weight Management Center at 792-5432, leave a voice message at 792-5427 or 792-2273 or send email with "Diabetes Study" in the subject line to
