The more you lose, the more you may gain
Volunteer for an investigational medication weight loss study
Do you start the day tired? If you have sleep apnea, explore a non-CPAP clinical research study option. This investigational medication study will help find out if weight loss improves sleep apnea symptoms. Qualified participants receive all study medication, study-related care and nutritional counseling at no cost. You may qualify if you are:
• at least 18 years of age
• unable or unwilling to use CPAP
• not diagnosed with type 1 or 2 diabetes
To volunteer, call 614.766.0773 ext. 111
Addressing Sleep Apnea
CPAP treatment opens your airway, but doesn't resolve the underlying problems that cause sleep apnea. Researchers want to find out if weight loss can improve airflow and reduce the dangerous risk factors associated with sleep apnea.
About Sleep Apnea
In patients with sleep apnea, low airflow causes restless, non-restorative sleep. As a result, you may be experiencing daytime sleepiness and poor concentration. This puts you at risk for driving and work-related accidents. Untreated sleep apnea can also lead to serious health conditions, including high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart attack and stroke.
About The Study
If you qualify, you will receive all study medication, study-related care, and nutritional counseling at no cost. You may also be compensated for your time and travel to the study center. You will be asked to participate in the study for about nine months. During that time, you will receive close monitoring from the study team and weight loss support. Additionally, you will be asked to:
• make regular visits to the study center
• take part in three separate overnight sleep evaluations
• follow a diet and exercice plan
• chart your progress in a study diary
While the study will focus on the effects of weight loss on sleep apnea, losing weight may bring additional benefits for long-term health. Consider volunteering.
