Evaluation of the effect of FIASP ultra-fast acting insulin

The IRCM clinic is seeking volunteers for a research project on the comparison of ultra-fast acting insulin (FIASP) and fast acting insulin (Novorapide) on blood glucose excursions during the exercise following a meal. 

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