This study will use Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques to evaluate changes in fluid volume in the lower legs of diabetic patients who add either pioglitazone or placebo to their current diabetic regimen.
Non-Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus
Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||An Exploratory MRI Study in Type 2 Diabetic Subjects: A Randomized, Double-Blinded, Placebo-Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Measurement of Fluid Volumes by MRI in the Lower Extremities of Subjects Receiving Pioglitazone
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Changes in interstitial fluid volume in the lower extremities as measured by MRI.
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Assessments of other indicators of fluid volume changes, including labwork evaluation, fluid compartment volume measurement, direct measurement of the calf.
