RISE Study:
Restoring Insulin Secretion

About the RISE Study

  • Are you overweight and worried about developing diabetes?
  • Do you have a family history of diabetes?
  • Has a health care provider ever spoken to you about high blood sugar?  Or said you have “borderline diabetes”?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you may be at high risk for developing diabetes.

The RISE Study (www.RISESTUDY.org) is looking for people like you.  RISE is an NIH-sponsored national research study for people who are at high risk of developing diabetes.  The study will be investigating how to prevent or delay the development of diabetes in people who are at high risk.

Why should you participate in the RISE Study?

Diabetes is a growing problem in adults.  RISE is a chance to learn the best ways to treat prediabetes at its earliest stages and thereby prevent or delay the development of diabetes.  During the study you will receive:

  •     The opportunity to improve your health
  •     A screening to determine if you have prediabetes
  •     Drugs approved to treat diabetes, or placebo (inactive substance)
  •     Drugs, lab tests, and medical visits provided at no cost
  •     Compensation for study participation
