Diabetic trials: Important Thing to remember

Diabetes being a metabolic disorder needs diet and life style modification. That means if somebody has diabetes then he/she should take diet of limited calories, so that it is easy to digest and releases less glucose in the body.  Pharmaceutical Industry has made tremendous effort in developing diabetic drugs that help diabetes patients to maintain normal blood sugar levels. They need various clinical trials to be conducted on diabetes patients so that they can find out whether their drug is effective in controlling the disease or not. It is important that patient should also know what he has to do during the trials and we have listed a few things below, that can help a clinical trial to be more efficient:

  • These patients should follow strict diet schedule as mentioned in the protocol. Diet could be of high calorie or low calorie. Some studies could be of high fat diet and others could be of Low fat diet depending upon the protocol.
  • A diabetic patients should follow his drug schedule very strictly so that he has actually impact of drug on the body and the results are accurate whether they give positive or negative impact.
  • Patients should know that if he has to exercise during the clinical trial. If Protocol mentions that patients has to exercise for 40 min to one hr daily, then has to follow the protocol. If protocol does not mention about the exercise patient has to do then he should ask Principal Investigator or Clinical Research Coordinator about the requirement of the diabetes.
  • Another important thing is that patients with diabetes generally has concomitant disease which may be of cardio-thoracic, kidney disease, liver disease etc. It is important for him to inform Principal Investigator about his status so that he can make right judgment about his enrolment in the study.
  • It is important for clinical trial that patient should have regular and on time followed up. If patients follow up is regular then there will be less of patient’s failure during clinical trial follow up and one should have excellent result during their clinical trials.
