If you have diabetes, please consider taking part in a study to increase knowledge about the disease and how to prevent some of its devastating effects.

Who can participate?

The Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute are looking for participants who live in Melbourne and have type 2 diabetes.

Whether you have had diabetes for a short or a long time; whether you are doing well or have problems with diabetes, you can be an important part of this study.

What is involved?

As part of this study, specialists from the Baker Institute will conduct a comprehensive diabetes health assessment. You will get:

  • a range of blood and urine tests
  • a comprehensive eye examination and eye scan
  • a test of your memory and mental agility
  • and a physical function test.

You will receive the results of these tests.

The Baker Institute will store blood and urine samples, and keep track of your health over the coming years. Over time, they will be able to use the powerful and comprehensive information from the initial testing to find ways of predicting who does and who doesn’t develop serious consequences of diabetes.
