A Washington University metabolism study seeks participants -Sleep Apnea Study-


Brief description of study

Obstructive sleep apnea is a risk factor for developing diabetes (high blood sugar) but it is not known why. We will compare sugar uptake into muscle and body fat in people with and without obstructive sleep apnea. We will also evaluate the effect of treating obstructive sleep apnea for 3 months on sugar metabolism. The study will require about 7 visits to the clinical research unit if you have sleep apnea and 13 visits if you have sleep apnea. There will be a medical screening, sleep and metabolic testing, body imaging, and muscle and fat biopsies. Up to $2,150 is provided for time and effort. Risks and benefits will be discussed as part of the informed consent process (201710015).
