I've been screened and accepted into this trial. I'm so excited. Unfortunately, (or fortunately) I have to maintain my current weight, eating habits and exercise for the next 3 months.
My doctor suggested I take glucosamine for my arthritis, but I'm too cheap, and this is a great opportunity to see if 1) I am insulin resistant and 2) if glucoscamine would actually help. I'll take a placebo for 6 weeks, then glucosamine for 6 weeks, I won't know which is which until the end. But hey, it sounds interesting.
If anyone is in the DC area, it looks like a cool study and the nurses and doctors are really nice.
