Towards targeted dietary support for shift-workers with type 2 diabetes: the SHIFT- diabetes study

Researchers at King’s College London are looking for volunteers to help them understand more about how shift work influences diet and blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes working night shifts in a healthcare setting.

Taking part involves recording your diet and sleep and wearing a continuous glucose and activity monitor for a 10-day period that includes night shifts, rest days and non-night shift workdays. Volunteers will be compensated £60 for their time.

A sub-group of participants who have completed the monitoring study may be contacted to take part in an informal interview (via telephone or MS Teams). If completed, participants will receive £25 for their time.

The study can be completed remotely and is open to volunteers in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

To take part or for more information please contact Maria by email:, telephone 020 7848 4356, or message via WhatsApp: 07864615972You can also visit the Shift-Diabetes study website.

This study is funded by Diabetes UK.
