Does the fat composition of a meal influence risk factors for heart disease?
We are currently looking for participants to take part in our research who are:
-Aged 18-50 years
-Waist circumference of ≥94cm (men) and ≥80cm (women) or BMI >25
-A waistline of more than ≥ 90 cm will be used to define inclusion in men from ethnic groups including South Asian, Chinese, Japanese, South and Central Americans
-No cardiometabolic or inflammatory illness
If you are interested in taking part you will be invited to complete an initial screening visit to find out more about the study. Then, if you decide to participate you will be asked to complete 2 study visit days where blood and adipose tissue (fat) samples will be collected.
Participants will be reimbursed for their time!
