FIBRE study: Feasibility of an Intervention using precision fibre Blends as a self-management tool in pRE- and type 2 diabetes

Researchers at Barts Health NHS Trust in London would like to recruit people aged 18–75 years living with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes (managed by diet, and not currently taking any diabetes medication such as metformin) to take part in a study. The aim of the study is to see how effective a daily fibre supplement could be as a tool to manage blood sugar levels at home, compared with their usual diet.

Participants will need to visit Barts Health to provide blood samples and a simple health check at the beginning of the study, and during weeks 16 and 24. They'll then visit the clinic again at weeks 16 and 24 for another blood sample and health check.
