EL PASO- The Border Clinical Research Lab is seeking participants for its latest medical research.

Participants needed are healthy, sedentary, non-smoking, Hispanic women 18-60 years of age, without type 2 diabetes for a study about how omega-3 fish oil consumption affects a person's risk for development of type 2 diabetes.

Participants will be tested for fasting blood glucose levels and complete a medical history questionnaire prior to participation in the study.

Study participation will include 8 visits to the lab, 5 of those visits being less than 15 minutes in duration to allow for supplement refills. Two visits will last approximately 4 hours each to allow for measurement of insulin sensitivity and resting metabolic rate. Total testing time will be approximately 12-13 hours.

All testing will take place at the Border Clinical Research Laboratory at the new College of Health Sciences/School of Nursing building on the UTEP campus.

Completion of this study will help researchers and clinicians better understand the role of omega-3 fatty acid supplements in the prevention of type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome. Each participant will also be provided with a booklet explaining all relevant results and monetarily compensated for their time.

If you think you might be interested in participating in this study, please contact Sarah Deemer at the Border Clinical Research Laboratory or (915)747-8260.
