BARDOS- Bile Acid Remediation Of Diabetes and Obesity Study

Researchers at Imperial College London would like to recruit people aged 18-80 living with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes (HbA1c between 42-75mmol/mol), who manage their blood sugar levels with diet and exercise or with one diabetes medication (such as metformin, but excluding insulin) to take part in a study looking at the effects of bile acid medication on weight loss and diabetes management.

Taking part will involve 4 visits to the research facility in Hammersmith Hospital in London with two overnight stays. Participants will be taking either a bile acid or harmless placebo tablet for a period of 8 weeks, and weight and blood sugar levels will be measured. The visits will include blood tests throughout the day through a cannula (plastic tube) in the arm. Participants will be offered £300 compensation.
