The SHIFT-diabetes study

Researchers at King’s College London are looking for volunteers to help them understand more about how shift work influences diet and blood sugar levels in people

Researchers at King’s College London are looking for volunteers to help them understand more about how shift work influences diet and blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes as part of a Diabetes UK funded study. 

There are two parts to the Shift-Diabetes Study. You can volunteer for one or both* parts of the study:

Monitoring study

For the monitoring study we will need you to wear a continuous glucose monitor and activity monitor for a 10-day period that includes night shifts, rest days and non-night shift workdays. We will also ask you to record your diet and sleep.

Volunteers will be compensated £60 on completion of the monitoring study and will receive their individual reports from the continuous glucose monitoring and a physical activity and dietary assessment report.

Informal interview

Taking part in the interview involves attending a 1-hour meeting with a researcher via secure on-line platform. During the meeting, the researcher will ask you questions about how and when you eat when you are working night shifts, and what factors may influence this.

Volunteers will be compensated £25 for their time on completion of the interview.

*If you would like to take part in both the monitoring and the interview you will need to complete the monitoring study first.

Are you a hospital or residential care-based shift worker (any job role) working 4 to 10-night shifts per month with diagnosed type 2 diabetes and are interested in helping with our research?
