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 the food habits of shift workers with type 2 diabetes when working night shifts in a healthcare setting.

There are two parts to the Shift-Diabetes Study. Volunteers can take part in one or both parts of the study.

Monitoring study

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.

Informal interview

Taking part involves attending an informal interview that will last about one hour. This will be conducted via telephone or over the internet. Volunteers will be compensated £25 for their time.

Both parts can be completed remotely and are 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.
