LIVING

Folic acid

Not just for pregnancy, if you're tired all the time,

having trouble sleeping, a folate deficiency could be

the cause.

When we think of folic

acid, also known

as Vitamin B9, we

often think about

pregnant women, who are advised to

take supplements to help the foetus

develop. However, what you may

not know is that folic acid is vital

for healthy body function in nonpregnant

women, and men too, and

that low levels can lead to digestion

problems and a plethora of health

issues including, in some cases,

anaemia.

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

A better understanding on how

hypoglycaemia (hypos) affects people

living with insulin treated diabetes.

WHO CAN APPLY FOR THE STUDY?

People with type 1 diabetes or type 2

diabetes using insulin who experienced

any symptoms of hypoglycaemia in the last

month.

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?

The study devices are used for a 10 week

period and a follow up visit is done in 1 year.

Study sponsored and conducted by: King's College London, as part of Hypo-RESOLVE: www.hypo-resolve.eu

Hypo-RESOLVE has received funding from the Innovative Medicines Initiative 2 Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement No 777460.

The JU receives support from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and EFPIA, T1D Exchange, JDRF,

International Diabetes Federation (IDF), The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.

WHAT DO I GET FOR TAKING PART?

Glucose data at the end of the 10 week period

Free Fitbit charge 4

£100 voucher when completing the study

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF I TAKE PART?

After consent we will provide you with a:

FreeStyle Libre 2 ('blinded' - readings

are not visible to you);

Fitbit charge 4 activity monitor (records

sleep and activity pattern);

Smartphone app.

We ask you to answer questions through

the app about any hypoglycaemia you may

have experienced while using the Fitbit and

FreeStyle Libre 2.

Folic acid helps to produce red

blood cells, which carry oxygen

around the body and keep us in

general good health. Good levels

of folic acid are even believed to

help fight insomnia. The effects

of depleted folic acid levels often

show themselves in just a few weeks

and can include fatigue, diarrhoea,

indigestion and stomach pain, mouth

sores, tongue swelling. Low levels

of folic acid can even lead to folate

deficiency anaemia, symptoms of

which include being constantly tired,

feeling weak, pale skin, shortness of

breath and irritability.

A varied and healthy diet should

provide you with all the folic acid

your body needs (unless you are

pregnant), but people who do not

often eat well, have high levels

of alcohol consumption or who

are elderly and have a reduced

appetite, may be at risk from folic

acid deficiency. Coeliacs and people

living with Crohn's disease are also at

risk from folate deficiency as these

conditions can affect the absorption
