Study Summary

This trial tests if a food program can help diabetes patients manage their health & reduce emergency visits. Participants get gift/debit cards & nutrition materials. Researchers compare their outcomes with those only receiving materials.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for diabetes patients who struggle with getting enough food (food insecurity). They must have been active in the Duke Diabetes Registry within the past year and had at least one outpatient A1c measurement. There are no specific exclusion criteria, so a wide range of individuals facing these challenges may qualify.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The 'Eat Well' program provides participants with gift/debit cards to buy fruits and vegetables plus educational nutrition materials. The study compares these participants against those only receiving education to see if there's an improvement in blood sugar control (Hb A1c levels) and fewer emergency visits up to 18 months after finishing the program.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this intervention involves dietary changes through increased access to healthy foods rather than medication, typical drug side effects aren't expected. However, changes in diet can sometimes lead to digestive adjustments or food sensitivities.
