Participate in a clinical study

Electrocardiographic changes during hypoglycemia

The IRCM Clinic is seeking volunteers for a research project on the study of people with type 1 diabetes with cardiovascular disease. The objective of the study is to measure the impact of spontaneous hypoglycemia on the heart.

Financial compensation will be given. The project is being carried out under the supervision of Dr. Rémi Rabasa-Lhoret and Dr. Hélène Mansaray.

This study involves a visit to the IRCM clinic for approximately two hours. We will ask you to wear a Holter (device which measures your heart’s rhythm) and a Freestyle Libre continuous glucose monitor for 48 hours.

Inclusion criteria

  • Clinical diagnosis of type 1 diabetes for at least 6 months
  • Be over 18 years of age
  • Have either a history of cardiovascular disease or more than 30 years of diabetes
