Sweet Taste Diabetes Research

Our aim is to investigate the way sugars enter the blood (from our food), and whether these uptake pathways in the gut can be targeted in new ways to better control blood sugar.

Our group has the following clinical studies underway, involving type 2 diabetic volunteers.

Study 1: Investigating a novel therapy to slow glucose entry into the blood, leading to improved control of blood glucose.

Study 2: Investigating whether diet supplementation with a combination of artificial sweeteners, affects blood glucose control.

We are currently recruiting volunteers who fit the following criteria:

  • Men & Women
  • Aged 20 – 75 years
  • People with Type 2 diabetes, managed by diet or by metformin medication
  • People without diabetes, who are healthy

To volunteer you must be willing to attend our clinic at SAHMRI and the Royal Adelaide Hospital. While your study participation is voluntary, we will reimburse you for your time spent within the clinic.

If you’d like to be involved in our research studies, it’s as simple as phoning or emailing us to register your interest.

Call Nicole on 8128 4863 or email taste_gut@adelaide.edu.au

We will then send you a questionnaire about your medical history. You will be required to attend our clinic for an appointment to chat about the study and take a small blood sample to check your overall health.
