Do you have type 2 diabetes?
This research study will evaluate the effects of two FDA-approved diabetes
medications on cardiovascular function during exercise. Qualified participants
will receive study medication, as well as free lab screenings, physical exams
and exercise testing. Financial compensation is provided. If you are between
the ages of 22 and 70 years old with type 2 diabetes who takes metformin only
for your diabetes, you may qualify for this study. If interested, please

Male and Female Volunteers Needed for Type 2 Diabetes and Exercise Research Studies
In the RXercise study, we will learn information that will help us to develop a better exercise prescription for people with type 2 diabetes. Specifically, we seek to identify barriers to physical activity for overweight people with and without type 2 diabetes. Even more importantly, we hope that this study provides a greater understanding of how to overcome those barriers! Being a participant in this research study means learning important information about your medical conditions and your exercise abilities. For example, you will take surveys to identify your exercise barriers, and you will perform exercise testing that allows us to give you a personalized exercise prescription that takes your current fitness levels into account. Participants with diabetes will also receive diabetes education visits and/or a supervised 3-month exercise program.
This is a study for people both with and without type 2 diabetes. We’re looking for male and female non-smokers, 50-70 years of age, who exercise less than one hour per week but would like to do more. If that describes you, then please contact Ian at 720-848-7103 or Ian.Leavitt@ucdenver.edu to learn more! Qualified study participants will receive financial compensation.

Leg Blood Flow Study
The Leg Blood Flow study plans to learn more about how Type 2 Diabetes affects the amount of blood flow and oxygen uptake in your muscles during exercise. This study is looking for healthy men and women with or without type 2 diabetes (not using insulin) between the ages 30-55 year who are non-smokers and currently exercise no more than once per week. Participants in the study are asked to attend 8 study visits and two weeks of supervised exercise training at the Anschutz Medical Campus. Study participants will be financially compensated and receive no cost lab screenings, physical exams, exercise testing and more. To learn more, please contact Deirdre at 720-848-6688 or by email at Deirdre.Rafferty@ucdenver.edu
