Metabolic Syndrome clinical trials at UCSF
3 in progress, 1 open to new patients

  • WALK Study: Women's Active Living for Koreans Study

    open to eligible females ages 40-69

    The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a health concern among Asians. Growing evidence indicates that Korean Americans had higher MetS prevalence compared to non-Hispanic Whites, but a culturally and linguistically appropriate lifestyle intervention has not been developed for Korean American middle-aged and older women. Thus, the investigators propose to develop a 4-week lifestyle intervention (Women's Active Living for Koreans (WALK) Study) to increase physical activity (PA) and reduce sedentary behavior for Korean American women.

  • Effect of Blueberry Consumption on Metabolic Syndrome & DNA Damage

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Obesity usually brings with it disturbances in the body that increase the chances of developing serious diseases like diabetes and cancer. These disturbances include one or more symptoms of a condition called "metabolic syndrome" that often leads to diabetes. High levels of damage to the DNA that makes up our chromosomes have also been observed in obese people. It is possible that these two disturbances are connected. The goal of this project is to test this whether consumption of blueberries will improve these abnormalities.

  • Women's Lifestyle Balance Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This pilot study aims to determine whether adding a sleep extension and sleep hygiene intervention to an existing lifestyle improvement program improves its efficacy for weight loss in those at risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Half of the participants will receive the Centers for Disease Control's standard PreventT2 program and half of the participants will receive the same program with an additional sleep intervention.
