Evaluation of a Medical Food for Chronic Wounds
This study objective is to compare the outcomes in subjects with a diabetic foot ulcer after 16 weeks of consuming an argine, glutamine, B-hydroxy-B-methylburate containing medical versus a calorically similar low glycemic response control drink.
Eligibility: Adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus with a foot ulcer greater than 30 days, but not more than 12 months from 1cm to 10cm in size.
Purpose of this study is to examine the contributions of genetic and environmental factors on racial differences in the risk for diabetes.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of maternal weight status during pregnancy and of gestational diabetes on children’s obesity and diabetes risk. We seek healthy 5-10 year old Caucasian or African American children whose mothers had gestational diabetes during pregnancy. The study involves two visits for testing of the child, and the mother’s medical records from pregnancy with that child must be obtainable. Both mother and child will be compensated.
