Volunteers needed for weight loss study in Adelaide.
Researchers at The University of South Australia are looking for women who have had diabetes during pregnancy (gestational diabetes) and would like to take part in research that will help women lose weight and may reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes (the most common type of diabetes).
The weight loss study will investigate a diet method called intermittent energy restriction, commonly known as the 5:2 diet on weight loss and blood sugar levels over 12 months. This research aims to help women with young families reach a healthy weight and reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Volunteers will be asked to follow a set diet plan (either the 5:2 diet or a conventional daily diet) and will have regular contact with a qualified Dietitian throughout the 12 month study who will provide you with information and ongoing support.
Participants who complete the 12 month trial will receive a $50 honorarium.
