USP seeks volunteers with type 2 diabetes for new treatment
Researchers are looking for men and women between the ages of 30 and 60, who have type 2 diabetes, do not use insulin, and are metabolically uncontrolled (cholesterol and triglycerides above 200 mg / dL).

According to researcher Rafael Ferraz, who coordinates the study alongside Professor Maria Cristina Foss-Freitas, the research created a food protocol capable of reducing calorie intake to a level that activates energy metabolism without causing malnutrition. treatment, the researchers had to find a mathematical formula and turn it into food, into macronutrients ideal for each patient and reverse diabetes. Preliminary data from the study showed that the method was able to control diabetes and dyslipidemia, as well as reduce pressure levels at healthy rates.
The treatment lasts for 27 days and is carried out at Hospital das Clínicas at FMRP / USP in Ribeirão . There are 33 vacancies available for volunteers. Interested parties should contact the Faculty of Medicine at
