Conquest Research is taking that step in the testing phase to run a series of clinical trials related to obesity and type 2 diabetes management. Our team is on the lookout for participants who wish to reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes through innovative management treatment. At a screening visit, you may:
Many individuals at risk for developing type 2 diabetes are not aware that excess weight and obesity are both contributing factors. In fact, patients with obesity are often six times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who maintain a healthy weight.

It all the more points to the need for treatment involving obesity and type 2 diabetes management.
