- Teenagers enrolled in high school who get less than 7 hours of sleep on school nights
- COMIRB number
Researchers at Children’s Hospital Colorado want to learn more about sleep and insulin resistance in teenagers, and how this may depend on sleep.
Participating teens receive up to $220 as compensation for their time.
Submit this screening survey to find out if you qualify.
Purpose of the study
This study aims to learn more about sleep and insulin resistance (insulin not working) in teenagers, and how this may depend on sleep. This is important to know so that we understand how sleep may play a role in health conditions like extra weight gain (increased food intake and less physical activity) and diabetes.
To answer this question, we plan to enroll teenagers who get less than 7 hours of sleep on school nights and measure changes in insulin sensitivity and dietary intake after a week of typical sleep (sleeping on their normal school schedule) and a week of longer sleep (spending 1 or more hours longer in bed each night).
If you qualify you will receive:
- Health and physical exam
- Assessment of your sleep patterns
- Measurement of how well your body uses and produces insulin
This research is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.
