Diabetes is a condition in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Without insulin, too much glucose stays in your blood. Over time, high blood glucose can lead to serious problems with your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and gums/teeth.
Do you have type 2 diabetes?
This clinical research study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication option for volunteers with type 2 diabetes.
