  • 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.

  • PilAm Go4Health Weight Loss Program to Prevent Heart Disease

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a pilot randomized controlled trial intervention to improve lifestyle behaviors (physical activity and health diet) for Filipino Americans with type 2 diabetes on metformin. If the PilAm Go4Health intervention demonstrates potential efficacy, it may identify effective intervention strategies to significantly reduce risks for heart disease risks (i.e., metabolic syndrome) in Filipino Americans.

  • 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.
