The Department of Nutrition, Hospitality, and Retailing is recruiting adults ages 18-45 to participate in a research study examining the effect of a sweet tasting mouth rinse on blood glucose and insulin levels. This study involves four (4) visits starting between 6-9:00a.m., and each visit will last approximately 30 minutes. Before each visit you will be asked not to eat or drink anything (including caffeine) from the time you wake up until you come to the facility. You will also be asked to avoid any moderate to vigorous exercise for 12 hours prior to each visit, and to not brush your teeth before arrival.
Measurements done at each study visit include height, weight, body composition blood pressure, and resting heart rate. An intravenous catheter (IV) will be placed in your forearm and multiple blood samples will be taken. You will also need to complete a protocol of rinsing and expectorating (spitting out) a sweet tasting mouth solution. Your participation in this study will be strictly voluntary and greatly appreciated. You may refuse or cease your participation at any time during the study. If you participate, you will learn what your body fat percentage is.
If you are interested in participating and would like to see if you qualify for the study or request more information, please contact Keely Hawkins in the Department of Nutrition, Hospitality, and Retailing at (806) 742-3068 or via email at email@example.com.
Thank you for your interest!
