Losing control of your bowels? The LIBERATE study may be right for you! Twenty million American women of all ages suffer from fecal incontinence, also known as Accidental Bowel Leakage (ABL), and we rarely talk about it. UAB is conducting a research study on a treatment for women with bowel control problems. Study participation may last approximately 15 months. You may be eligible to participate if you experience loss of bowel control, are female age 19 or older and have a history of accidental bowel leakage for at least 6 months. For more information, please call 934-3178. Compensation will be provided.
Females, 55 or older who experience urge incontinence may qualify for this study examining the relationship between urine leakage and vitamin D deficiency. This 12 week study involves 4 visits to The UAB Continence Clinic and two telephone consolations. There is no cost, and participants will be compensated. Interested? Please call 975-3503 and mention the Vitamin D study.
