Clinical Trial 16511

Salt Lake City, Ut 84102

Study Summary:

Those with diabetes know they are at a higher risk of having heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular complications. This study is looking at the effects of a new diabetes medication on cardiovascular risks in patient at high risk of having another stroke or heart attack. If you've had heart problems and your A1c is still above 7% you may be eligible to participate.

This medication stimulates your pancreas to produce insulin when your blood sugars are elevated. Unlike other medications, this medication is blood sugar dependent, meaning that as your blood sugar comes back to normal the medication becomes inactive. This prevents your blood sugars from going too low and causing cravings, weight gain, and symptoms of low blood glucose. When you eat again and your blood sugar begins to rise, the medication in once again reactivated to help control your diabetes. This more closely mimics what the pancreas naturally does.
