Volunteers wanted for intervention study: the effect of night-time eating on diabetes risk

Seeking healthy male volunteers aged 18-50 years.

Researchers are conducting an intervention study to see how the foods eaten during the day and night can affect diabetes risk in healthy men.
It will involve you undertaking two different studies where researchers compare your responses to both :

a) an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) which tests for diabetes risk
b) a low glycaemic index meal. You will have to complete each test twice – once in the morning time and once in the evening time.
To accurately assess changes in glucose and insulin researchers will need to take a number of blood samples up to three hours after you have eaten the test meals. You will also have your body composition measured.

You will be required to attend the newly opened Monash Be Active, Sleep and Eat (BASE) facility in Notting Hill on four occasions.

You will also need to attend a screening session where researchers will examine your blood glucose levels for eligibility.

Reimbursement will be provided for some travel expenses.

This study has been approved by Monash University’s Ethics Committee (Project Number CF15/1301 – 2015000620)
