New Research Study Opportunity
Research Opportunity: Hormones & Eating
Many people report that they eat more before their menstrual period. But we don’t yet know exactly which hormones are involved in this change or why this change occurs. The Univeristy of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is trying to better understand how female reproductive hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, impact eating behaviors in people who may experience certain types of unhealthy eating habits such as overeating. With your help, we can learn how changes in hormones might lead to overeating. You or someone you know might be eligible to join this research study if you:
- Are 18-35 years of age
- Have regular menstrual periods
- Experience episodes of overeating (e.g., eating too much)
Participation in this research study includes a total of 8 study visits, which will occur over the course of 4 months. Study participants can receive up to $900, a free medical exam and blood work, and all study participants can learn how their own eating behaviors changed in response to hormones during a one on one meeting with the study investigator after study completion.
