Does diabetes run in your family?

Then sit up and take notice.

If your child has type 2 diabetes that is difficult to control or if type 2 diabetes runs in your family, you may want to learn more about the SITup studies.

Children and adolescents who have uncontrolled type 2 diabetes despite taking medication or who have not yet been treated for their type 2 diabetes may qualify for the SITup clinical research studies.

The purpose of the SITup studies is to find out whether an investigational medication, called sitagliptin, can safely and effectively help control blood sugar levels in children and adolescents. What we learn in this study may help us develop new options for managing type 2 diabetes for other children and adolescents in the future.

Your child may be eligible to participate in a SITup study if he or she:

  • Is 10 to 17 years of age
  • Has an A1C level between 6.5% and 10%

If your child has not been tested for type 2 diabetes or you are unsure of his or her A1C level, contact your doctor.
