Volunteers Needed with Chronic Liver Disease

NIDDK seeks volunteers 18 and older with chronic liver disease such as hepatitis, fatty liver and cirrhosis to join a research study. Fatigue is common in people with liver disease and can severely affect quality of life. Researchers want to learn what causes fatigue in people with liver disease. You do not need to have fatigue to participate in this study. You will complete a sleep diary for 1 week, answer questionnaires and have blood draws. You will spend 1 night at the Clinical Center where your sleep will be monitored (sleep study). Study-related procedures are provided at no cost. Compensation may be provided. For more information, call 1-866-444-2214 (TTY 1-866-411-1010) and refer to study 13-DK-0142.
