Baker-Deakin Department of Lifestyle and Diabetes
We often need real, every-day people to join our studies at the Baker-Deakin Department of Lifestyle and Diabetes.
Depending on the study, we may require participants who meet certain criteria such as age, gender, health status or live in a particular postcode. Studies may be long-term or short-term. You may be asked to undergo clinical tests, follow diets or exercise programs, fill in surveys or trial tools and resources. Can you help?
We’re currently seeking participants in the following studies:
Do you have type 2 diabetes and work in a desk-based job?
Can reducing and breaking up sitting time help glycaemic control in office workers with type 2 diabetes? Recent studies have shown that reducing and breaking up sitting time has beneficial effects on blood glucose control and insulin levels in patients with type 2 diabetes. The OPTIMISE your health study will investigate whether a 18-month multi-component intervention targeting reducing and breaking up sitting can help improve glycaemic control in office workers with type 2 diabetes.
