UVA Health System, Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Endocrinology is conducting a clinical research study. We want to learn more about how exercise training affects blood vessels in skeletal and cardiac muscle in persons with Type 2 diabetes and individuals who are overweight but otherwise healthy. You may be eligible if you are 30-55 years of age and either have Type 2 diabetes or are overweight but otherwise healthy. You must be a nonsmoker and a non-exerciser.
Participation involves 15 weeks of exercise training with a personal trainer 3 days a week. All exercise training is scheduled at UVA.
There are 7 outpatient visits over a 8 month study period:
- 5 Outpatient visits (lasting about 1 to 2.5 hours).
- 2 Outpatient visits (lasting about 7 hours each, and spaced 15 weeks apart).
All visits are during the week, and require blood draws.
Study-related exercise training with a personal trainer, exams and blood labs are provided free of charge.
Provided in installments.
