Study Overview

We are conducting a study to learn more about weight and how sugar is processed in the body. We will consider the role of the immune system and other body processes in the development of insulin resistance and Type 2 Diabetes. This study involves a visit to Arkansas Children’s and a possible 2nd visit 6-months to a year later. The study visit is expected to last up to 2 ½ hours. Upon completion of a study visit you will be compensated for your time.
