Volunteers sought for PCOS research study

Volunteers are needed for a Polycystic Ovary Syndrome research study. The study will test the effect of food supplementation on hormones in women with and without polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The study is open to TWU and non-TWU individuals. Participants are required to come to the Denton campus up to five times.

Volunteers should be:

  • Women with or without polycystic ovary syndrome (Or if you have excess body hair growth and irregular menses)
  • Age 18-45
  • Minimally exercising (fewer than 30 minutes per day and fewer than three days per week)
  • No other known metabolic disorders or protein allergies
  • Not pregnant or not lactating

Intervention will include supplementation for up to 60 days. Blood draws are required for analyses.

Benefits of the study include a free bone scan and body composition analysis and up to $60 compensation upon completion of the study.
