Diabetes Remission Study



We are investigating the effect that weight loss surgery has on diabetes.

We are looking for volunteers to take part in this study. There will be a screening visit and a maximum five study visits each lasting between 1-6 hours.

Visits will involve a medical screening visit where you will be examined by a doctor and have baseline blood samples and an ECG. This will then be followed by visits where we profile your body fat using a scanner, your genes by blood test and how your body handles sugar by a standard meal. We also collect samples of urine and stool, and if applicable, sperm.

We are looking for:

  • Male or females
  • Aged 18-80
  • Planning to undergo weight loss surgery
  • Have diabetes or pre-diabetes
