If you’re reading this, chances are you are either living with diabetes, or know someone who is. It’s no surprise; the disease impacts one of every 11 people in the US. Whether the patient is you, a family member, or a friend, you’re no stranger to the daily struggle of maintaining insulin levels, of weighing every dietary choice against potential health ramifications. You know the annoyance of daily finger pricks and the stress of endless medical bills. You know the worry that comes with increased risks of blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, and stroke.
These complications mean that we have a lot of work to do. So how can we improve diabetes management, reduce the incidence of complications, and maybe even find a cure? The answer – the promise of better days, the hope for brighter futures – lies in medical research.
But, there’s a problem. There are more than 1,300 diabetes clinical trials taking place in the United States, but many of them won’t come to anything due to a lack of patient participation. There can be no progress in medical research without patients taking part in trials.
Patients don’t get involved with trials for lots of reasons – but one of the most significant is that right now, there is no easy way to search for clinical trials. The process involves searching online through hundreds of clinical trials – and even if there’s a match, trials are usually described in language that most people find difficult to understand. And that’s where we come in.
We’re a patient-focused technology company dedicated to connecting patients like you – or anyone living with diabetes – with clinical trials. We have recently launched a smart search tool that uses cutting-edge technology to scan all open diabetes trials in the US and generate personalized, easy-to-understand clinical trial options. All you have to do is answer a few questions and our search engine will scan every open diabetes trial in the United States to find the right trials for you. Then, we make it easy to get in touch with researchers running the trials.
One in 11 people in the US could be a part of getting new drugs and life changing treatments to the people who need them. They will be test pilots, pioneers braving uncharted medical frontiers. Are you one of them? Even answering a few questions can help medical researchers understand more about diabetes.
