Background: Intra-jejunal administration of bile acids improves insulin sensitivity.
Hypothesis: The bile acid, ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) in delayed (ileocolonic)-release formulation, stimulates TGR-5 and FXR receptors in the ileum and colon, increasing the secretion of FGF-19, GLP-1, oxyntomodulin (OXM), and PYY3-36, improving insulin sensitivity and inducing weight loss.
Aim: To study the effect of an ileocolonic formulation of UDCA on insulin sensitivity, postprandial plasma glycemia and incretin levels, gastric emptying and body weight in overweight or obese type 2 diabetic subjects on monotherapy with metformin.
Study design: This is a single center, placebo-controlled, parallel group, single dose randomized controlled trial to study the effect of delayed (ileocolonic)-release UDCA 600 mg twice daily on insulin sensitivity, gastric emptying of liquids and solids (measured by scintigraphy)and weight loss in overweight or obese type 2 diabetic subjects. Participants will be receiving monotherapy with metformin. Blood samples will be collected at defined times to measure glycemia and the incretin (GLP-1, OXM, PYY3-36) fasting levels and responses to the meal.
Anticipated Results: In comparison with placebo, UDCA will increase insulin sensitivity, enhance glycemic control, increase postprandial incretins, and delay GE of liquids.
Significance: This study will prove that ileocolonic-release UDCA enhances glycemic control in T2DM patients.
