Effect of habitual food intake on glycaemic control in individuals with type 1 diabetes

This research project at the University of Western Australia is to determine if there is a relationship between daily carbohydrate intake and glycaemic control, frequency of hypoglycaemic events, fear of hypoglycaemia, insulin dosage, physical activity participation, body composition and blood lipoprotein profiles in individuals with T1DM in a free-living setting.

Predictive Low Glucose Management (PLGM) Study

WA youngsters and adults with type 1 diabetes are helping researchers develop a more advanced artificial pancreas system that promises to reduce the stigma of the chronic disease.

In a world first trial, Princess Margaret Hospital will start recruiting up to 200 diabetics this month to test an advanced insulin delivery system, called a “hybrid closed loop”, over six months.

This new “second generation” pump system is designed to control glucose levels automatically with limited input from patients who only need to enter their carbohydrate levels into the equipment at meal times.

The T4DM Study

Are you male aged between 50 and 74 years?

We will be recruiting about 1500 men who do not have diabetes across Australia to join the study. Study participation will last approximately 2 years.
