The University of Lincoln would like to invite you to take part in a study looking at the effects of a sound intervention during sleep on glucose levels in type 2 diabetic participants.
Title of Study: RESTED – nonREm Sleep inTervention to improvE Diabetes
If you are interested in taking part, we would ask you to spend 3 nights (approximately one week apart) in our Sleep and Cognition Laboratory. On arrival, you would be asked to complete some sleep-related questionnaires and would be fitted with face and scalp electrodes to measure muscle tone and brain activity during sleep. During the night, we would ask you to wear some sleep-comfortable earphones delivering a quiet sound (this will not wake you) and on night 2, a small non-invasive device called a continuous glucose monitor will be fitted and worn for 14 days. In the morning, you will have the opportunity to have a shower and on days 2 and 3, will be asked to relax for 2 hours in the lab whilst completing a short reaction-time task, have a sugary drink and an oral glucose test.
