UB TREAD STUDY: Tracking Food, Exercise, and Decision Making in People with PreDiabetes
Eating Variability in High and Low Delay Discounters
This study enrolls adults who have not been diagnosed with diabetes. 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 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. 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.
The primary objective is to determine if glucose variability is correlated with the rate of delay discounting. A secondary objective is to determine if differences in glucose variability are observed when participants self-monitor dietary intake.
Compensation may include cash, checks, gift cards, debit cards, or incentives like gift baskets, technology items, or merchandise.
Normal glucose levels or a diagnosis of prediabetes.
