UVA Center for Diabetes Technology Seeking Participants for Multiple Studies

in

 

Study 1:

The Center for Diabetes Technology seeks adolescents who are between 11 and less than 13 years old, going through puberty, and are living with Type 1 Diabetes for a research study.

The purpose of the study is to find out if teenagers going through puberty with Type 1 Diabetes can control their diabetes better by using an Artificial Pancreas (AP) system as compared to performing their usual diabetes care. Your child may be eligible for this study if diagnosed with type 1 diabetes for at least 1 year, using insulin for at least six months, and their A1c is 10.0% or below (tested within the last 6 weeks).

Study 2:

The UVA Center for Diabetes Technology seek female participants, age 18-40 y.o., with Type 1 Diabetes for a research study. This study will recruit female participants who are using oral contraceptive with one week of placebo as well as female participants who are not using hormonal contraceptive (“free cycling”).

This study is trying to find out how much the menstrual cycle effects the blood glucose variability and the effectiveness of insulin delivery. Your glucose levels will be tracked using a commercially available continuous glucose monitor (CGM) throughout the duration of three menstrual cycles
