As some of you know, I was diagnosed a few weeks ago on May 28, 2009. Since then, my endocrinologist has mentioned a number of studies for me to look into, in case I was interested in participating.
I have chosen to possibly be a part of the DEFEND study. I am leaving tomorrow afternoon for a "screening" appointment, where they will do a little bit of blood work, heart monitoring, and a mixed meal tolerance test (MMTT) to confirm that I would be a good candidate.
Just thought I would ask if anyone else has heard of/participated in/or currently participating in this study.
Here is the study website:
