Participants needed for weight loss study

The Department of Health and Exercise Science is seeking volunteers to participate in a research study examining the favorable effects of a new diabetes medicine. One of these effects is weight loss.

Researchers in the Department of Health and Exercise Science and the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition are working together to determine how many of the health benefits can be attributed directly to Farxiga, independent of weight loss.

Activities involved with study participation include three months of nutritional counseling and a variety of physiological measurements, including blood sugar and body composition. All participants will receive financial compensation for time spent in the lab in addition to useful information pertinent to their health.

Volunteers should be between 18 and 65 years old, weigh more than they prefer and not be regular exercisers. Further information is available upon request at physiology@cahs.colostate.edu

The departments of Health and Exercise Science and Food Science and Human Nutrition are based in the College of Health and Human Sciences.
