GRADE Study. (Glycemia Reduction Approaches in Diabetes) Do you have type 2 diabetes? Help to find the best long-term treatment for people with diabetes. Most people with diabetes need metformin and another drug to keep blood sugar close to normal. We are comparing four potential second line treatments in the GRADE study to determine which one, when added to metformin, is best for controlling diabetes. All four treatments are recommended by the American Diabetes Association and FDA approved. Visit https://grade.bsc.gwu.edu and call 718-670-2914, or 718-670-1827.
