Looking for a new way to help control your Type 2 Diabetes?
ReCETTM by Endogenex* is a new investigational procedure designed to help people living with Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) bring control to their blood sugar levels.
What is Type 2 Diabetes?
Type 2 Diabetes is a progressive disease in which the body has difficulty maintaining normal blood sugar levels. Over time, excess sugar in the blood damages blood vessels, kidneys, eyes and other tissues in the body.
T2D treatment options
Current treatments for T2D focus primarily on lifestyle adjustments (diet and exercise) and the use of medications including insulin. An adult diagnosed with diabetes in the US uses an average of 5.9 different medications.6 Managing these medications and their side effects can be challenging; the costs of these medications can be significant.
The ReCET Procedure is an investigational, non-surgical treatment that is designed to promote regeneration of signaling cells in the small intestine that helps the body manage blood sugar levels.
During the ReCET Procedure, a physician will use a small camera to help guide a special catheter from your mouth down to the first part of your small intestine. Once the catheter is in place, it distributes precise, controlled electrical pulses into the wall of that section of your small intestine. These electrical pulses are intended to disrupt the poorly functioning signaling cells and start your body’s process of replacing them with new cells to help better manage your blood sugar levels.
You are asleep during the ReCET Procedure and are able to go home the same day. Most patients are able to start their normal activities the day after the procedure is done.
