Type 2 diabetes is a serious medical condition affecting an estimated 26 million Americans. Diabetes is one of the major risk factors for developing heart disease in diabetics.

Deaconess Clinic physicians are participating in a research study to evaluate if adding the study medication to current diabetic medications can reduce the risk of having a cardiovascular event such as a heart attack, stroke or death.

To qualify for the study, you must be age 40 or older and have type 2 diabetes. You will be assessed for other risk factors for cardiovascular disease to determine if you qualify to participate in the study. Qualified participants will receive study-related office visits and study medication at no cost and may receive compensation up to $560 for time and travel.
