Researchers at University College London Hospital and King’s College London would like to recruit people with Type 2 diabetes (taking at least one oral diabetes medication) to take part in their study. They want to find out if a new endoscopic procedure, called DMR, can lower blood glucose levels in people who have Type 2 diabetes.
For information, please contact Marcia Henderson-Wilson (King’s College site) on 02078425653 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr Cormac Magee (University College London Hospital site) on 07870652851 email@example.com.
Researchers at Ulster University (Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland) would like to recruit men with Type 2 diabetes to take part in a study looking at the effects of a time-efficient high-intensity interval exercise session (which takes 10 minutes total) on 24-hour blood glucose levels.
The study is using continuous glucose monitors to understand the effects of exercise on blood glucose levels when participants are outside of a lab environment (performing their normal daily activities). The team are looking for participants who are 18-60 years of age, with a BMI of less than 35, who take no more than two diabetes medications and are not on insulin therapy.
For more information, please contact Dr Richard Metcalfe on firstname.lastname@example.org or 028 716 75037.
Researchers at King’s College London are looking for women with Type 2 diabetes (aged 45-65 years) to test their Women’s Wellness with Type 2 Diabetes Program. The program aims to promote health and wellbeing to enable women to manage their condition and potentially prevent diabetes-related complications in later life. Participants will receive a 12-week structured program, including a work book (hard copy and e-book), a website with a peer forum and resources, and Skype consultations with a Diabetes Nurse.
For further information, please visit the program website, or contact the research team at email@example.com or 07517 763 473.
Researchers at De Montfort University, Leicester are looking for adults with Type 2 diabetes to take part in a study aiming to understand exercise behaviour.
Participants will be asked to complete a survey online, which should only take between 10 and 20 minutes and can be found on survey page.
You can withdraw from the survey for up to 48 hours after completion, if you change your mind.
For more information please contact Mariam Agha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Researchers at the University of Bristol would like to recruit adults with Type 2 diabetes, who are currently using or have previously used a web-based tool or app to help them manage their diabetes. The researchers are trying to understand people’s experiences, and what they do and don’t like about this technology. Participating in the study would involve an interview. The researchers are looking for people with different experiences and from different backgrounds to compare their views.
For information please contact: Sophie Turnbull on email@example.com, or 01179287220.
Researchers at the University of Liverpool would like to recruit people with a parent, sibling or child with Type 2 diabetes to take part in their study to understand the importance of physical activity in those with a family history of the condition. The study involves six visits to the clinic to have several health checks (like an MRI scan) and the team are looking for people aged 18-60 years who do over 10,000 steps per day.
(Reimbursements for time and travel are available).

Researchers at University of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, are currently recruiting adults with Type 2 diabetes, at high risk of Type 2 diabetes, who have/had gestational diabetes or have no diabetes. They would like participants to complete a 15-20 minute anonymous online survey to help them to understand the relationships between psychological distress, impulsivity, body mass index (BMI) and food addiction in people with and without diabetes.
For more information, please contact Karren-Lee Raymond at Karren-lee.Raymond@research.usc.edu.au or go to the survey website.
Researchers at Glasgow Caledonian University and Strathclyde University are investigating whether blood glucose control after meals could be improved in people with Type 2 diabetes, by breaking up periods of sitting with light walking. They’ll be using continuous glucose monitors to carry out their study, and are looking for people (aged 35 to 75 years) with Type 2 diabetes who use metformin or diet management in the Glasgow area. They hope their findings will help to develop better lifestyle support for people with Type 2 diabetes.

Researchers at University of Sheffield would like to recruit people with Type 2 diabetes who are current or former users of mobile apps to monitor their diet and/or exercise. The researchers are interested in how people select apps, what features are useful, how apps are used, what people think about the information they get from the apps and whether they think there are any risks to using them.
Taking part involves filling in a short survey, which can be found on survey page.
