Do you have type 2 diabetes?
Have you had it for less than 5 years?
Do you take only metformin for your diabetes?
You may be able to join GRADE, a clinical research study being conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital. GRADE seeks to identify the best combination of commonly used medications to treat type 2 diabetes for long-term health.
Participants receive, at no cost to them:
• Diabetes treatment, tests, medicines and supplies
• $100/year and free parking at Mass General parking garages
• Regular, coordinated care from a diabetes medical team at the Mass General Diabetes Center. Visits are four times a year for four to seven years, depending on date of enrollment.
The diabetes medicines, and medication combinations studied in GRADE are regularly prescribed by doctors, and are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the American Diabetes Association to treat type 2 diabetes.
