Researchers at UAB are conducting an exciting study in adolescents to investigate how diet quality influences body composition, quality of life, and other outcomes related to fatty liver disease. Overweight/obese children ages 10-17 who have elevated liver enzymes may be eligible to participate. Participation involves attending study visits, completing several assessments, and taking part in a nutrition program for 2 months. All participants and their parents will receive monetary compensation as well as two weeks of groceries valuing $330. For more information please call 205-975-0424 or email shima@uab.edu.
We are looking for participants who have been diagnosed with “Fatty Liver Disease” and who are NOT diabetic. We are also looking for healthy individuals with a history of kidney stone formation with a BMI between 20-40. All visits will occur at UAB and participants will be required to consume meals for three days that are prepared by trained UAB dietary staff. The meals are provided at no cost to participants and may be consumed at your location of choice. This study will also involve collecting your urine for two consecutive days. Compensation is provided. Contact Billy Tingle at billy@uab.edu if you feel you meet either or both of these criteria and would like to see if you qualify.
