UB TREAD STUDY: Tracking Food, Exercise, and Decision Making in People with PreDiabetes
Protocol: STUDY00004177
Full Title
Eating Variability in High and Low Delay Discounters
This study enrolls adults who have been diagnosed with prediabetes. The purpose of this study is to look at decision making and how it relates to food, exercise, and blood sugar levels.

This study will last 2 weeks and requires you to attend 3 sessions (each lasts 30 minutes-2 hours). The first session will be about 2 hours. You will give a small finger-prick blood sample, measure your weight, complete some surveys and questionnaires, and be fitted with a small device that will monitor your blood sugar as well as an activity monitor for the next 2 weeks. You will also be asked to record your daily food and drink intake for the next 2 weeks. After 1 week, the second visit will include measuring your weight and downloading the data from the blood sugar monitor and the activity monitor. After the second week, you will come back to the lab for your third and final visit where we will measure your weight and download the data from the devices.

This study takes place at UB's South Campus. If you are interested please call (716)829-5788, TREADStudy@gmail.com, or fill out the eligibility survey at https://tinyurl.com/treadstudy
