A Research Study to See How Semaglutide Works Compared to Placebo in People With Type 2 Diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease (FLOW)


Do you have Type 2 Diabetes? Have you ever experienced kidney problems?

Participating in a clinical study can improve future treatment options for you and other people with type two diabetes and chronic kidney disease.

In a study called FLOW, we will check to see if a therapy for lowering blood glucose in people with type 2 diabetes, can also slow down the progression and worsening of chronic kidney disease in these people.

Visit the ClinicalTrials.gov website for more information >

You may qualify to participate in the FLOW study if:

  • You have been diagnosed with kidney disease
  • You are 18 years old or older
  • You have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes
  • You are able to attend regular clinic visits and receive phone calls over a period of 3–5 years

What are the benefits of being involved in the FLOW study?

  • General talks with a dedicated team of doctors and nurses
  • Guidance on healthy lifestyle choices
