In January 2015 the Barbados Diabetes Reversal Study, a pilot study aimed at reversing type two diabetes, will begin. It will explore whether type two diabetes can be reversed by patients adopting a low calorie diet and maintaining a healthy weight.
Participants will be given a low calorie liquid diet for eight weeks with non-starchy vegetables making sure that they receive all the necessary vitamins and minerals. This will then be followed by a 6 month period where participants will resume a normal healthy diet.
The study will be funded by Virgin Unite and builds on research conducted in the UK by Prof Roy Taylor.
If you’re from Barbados and would like to take part in this study you’ll need to have been diagnosed with the condition within the past 6 years. For more information and to register please contact email@example.com or 1 246 266 5673
