Expression of Interest for Defeat Diabetes Research Study


Project Aim

We hope to learn if the Defeat Diabetes app can help participants self-manage their type 2 diabetes, using a low carbohydrate diet over a 12 month period.


What is Defeat Diabetes?

The Defeat Diabetes Program has been formulated by Australian doctors and dietitians and is based on the latest scientific literature. This is not a crash diet, does not use shakes or supplements, and is not extremely low in calories. It is a real food approach which minimises the intake of sugars and starches.

Here is a quick overview of the Defeat Diabetes Program (2 mins) - Introduction to Defeat Diabetes


How can you help?

We seek your help to refer and medically manage eligible participants and to provide us with blood tests results, blood pressure, anthropometry and medication information - if prescribed, at baseline, 3, 6 and 12 months.

Members of the ACRRM and RACGP who support our study will be eligible for CPD.
