About the Study

Have you been told you have "pre-diabetes", "borderline diabetes" or that you have type II diabetes?

Pennington Biomedical is looking for individuals with "pre-diabetes", "borderline diabetes" or type II diabetes to participate in a research study. Both "pre-diabetes" and type II diabetes are associated with other health issues and increase your risk for developing future health problems. The purpose of this research study is to determine if adding a new type of rice, called purple rice, to your diet can improve blood sugar, cholesterol and other areas of your health.
