Clinical Trials for Diabetes and Growth Opportunities
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that deals with increase in Blood Sugar levels and Hba1C levels. As one grows in age, people tend to have diabetes and this could be due to increased levels of body weight, BMI and fat disposition. Diabetic individuals usually have following symptoms
- Increase Urination
- Increased thirst
- Weight gain
- Increased Food Intake
- Blurred vision
- Poor Muscle Strength
- Erectile Dysfunction
Diabetes could be Type I and Type II diabetes. Type I diabetes is for some reason, the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Genes may play a role in some people. Whereas Type II diabetes is more prevalent and it occurs in people who are fat and above the age of 40. Body becomes more resistant to the effects of insulin on your blood sugar. As insulin resistance increases, human body utilizes less of sugar so blood sugar levels increase leading to type II diabetes.
These days many sponsor companies are innovating on drug that impact at different levels such as DNA, Receptor levels, and so on. These companies need man power that is capable of conducting diabetes trials, who can handle various challenges to perform that particular clinical trial, and who can contribute in the growth of the organization. These days more and more diabetic clinical trials are going on. We know diabetes is a metabolic disorder, so you as a good clinical researcher must have a thorough knowledge of insulin resistance and metabolic disorder. What is patho physiology diabetes and what are its diagnostic tests used to estimate diabetic levels. It is also critical to know study design like you may plan a double blinded study if there are two arms, you should have randomization and of course it can be a multi centric study etc.
These days the number of diabetic trials is increasing and man power required for such studies is very limited. Sponsor companies have to struggle hard to get right kind of people. So if you have good knowledge of disease and clinical trial from conception to final execution then sky is the limit for you.
