NatCom recently distributed an eNewsletter asking for members to take part in a study of T4DM– testosterone intervention in the prevention of diabetes in high risk men. Glenda, who is recruiting for the program reports that she has randomised 5 eligible men into T4DM and they all said they heard about the study via the Ulysses Club eNewsletter. 
What a fantastic result!

The study has not been easy to recruit for as all participating men need to be relatively healthy, but with raised blood glucose and lower testosterone levels.  The program may identify even more eligible men as not all have had their screening bloods done yet.

The study is looking at whether testosterone treatment in combination with a lifestyle program, will reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes in men with both low testosterone and pre-diabetes in comparison to lifestyle changes alone.

If you are interested in joining the program, they are recruiting males who fit the following criteria:
-    Men 50 – 74 years
-    do not have Type 2 Diabetes
-    waist circumference 95cms or more
-    willing to participate in a lifestyle program coordinated by Weight Watchers
-    willing to be screened for blood glucose and testosterone levels
-    if eligible able to attend clinic visits 11 times over a 2 year period

Recruiting will continue until the end of 2014.
The study is national and the centres are based at:
