UCA seeks volunteers for a study on women’s health

Researchers from the Exercise Physiology, Nutrition and Health Research Group (ExPhy) University of Cadiz (UCA) running an intervention program of physical exercise and diet for Improving the health of people with type 2 diabetes and for which they need volunteers. Clinical assessment of muscle function will be performed along with measurement of the intestinal microbiota of each participant.

This research project coordinated by Professors Christina Casals and Jesus Ponce Didactics Department of Physical, Plastic and Music Education Part of the fact that most people who develop type 2 diabetes have tried lifestyle changes first and failed is because they didn’t know how to do it or they were successful, but with inconsistent results and The dreaded ‘rebound effect’.

For this reason, a multidisciplinary team (including endocrinologists, nutritionists, qualified personal trainers, nurses and rehabilitation doctors) is providing personalized and free care and follow-up. patients with type 2 diabetes For three months, apply all your scientific knowledge to improve health and achieve a steady loss of body fat.

Both men and women with type 2 diabetes can take part in this study, however, and to date the largest number of volunteers have been men. Therefore, from the UCA team «we encourage all women who are interested contact us. The metabolic and endocrine changes of females in adulthood differ greatly from those of males, and this should be factored into research studies; Thereby they will receive adequate and specific diagnosis and treatment of disease in the health system for the volunteers.

Specifically, they will undergo a clinical evaluation with a complete blood test, muscle function will be examined (due to its important role in glucose uptake), and their intestinal microbiota will be measured, and Because it also has an important role in the utilization of glucose and reducing weight or body fat. «There are certain characteristics of women that make it difficult to lose fat despite exercise and diet, and this is why our group is specialized in addressing pre, peri or post menopausal women, However, in order to advance science and improve women’s health, we need volunteers who can participate in the study and their daily tasks, and for this reason, we have different programs for different times and days. There are different types of interventions,” as he explains to ExPhy Group.

Profile to participate as a volunteer

To be part of this study as a volunteer, you must be less than 65 years old, overweight, with diabetes or pre-diabetes and the person is willing to travel to Puerto Real for tests. Similarly, it is essential that the volunteers have not taken oral antibiotics in the last three months and have a stable medication without major changes in their weight in the last six months. With regard to medication, “Participants who do not have any medication or who are taking medication with tablets (eg Metformin or similar) or injections (eg Ozempic or similar) may enter, however in this phase we do not include insulin Cannot include takers”.

It is important to note that this research group has several success stories with participants who have managed to improve diabetes control and reduce or eliminate medication in similar procedures. ,diabetes is a silent disease Which, if not treated correctly and in time, leads to serious consequences, disability and an increase in mortality. Thus, the sooner it is treated and the participant can have enough tools to learn how to control it, the easier it will be to avoid the negative effects of the disease. You have to act as soon as possible and this is a great opportunity to get free individual treatment by professionals of excellent scientific quality.
