Atypical Bulimia Nervosa clinical trials at University of California Health
1 research study open to eligible people
Ketone Supplementation in Eating Disorders
open to eligible people ages 18-65
This study will investigate the effects of ketone supplementation on eating behavior including drive to binge eat or restrict, mood and anxiety in individuals with anorexia or bulimia nervosa. In addition, the investigators will contrast the effects of active ketone supplementation versus placebo on electroencephalogram (EEG) measurement. All subjects enrolled in the study will undergo EEG on two consecutive days at the beginning of the study, after active ketone supplementation or placebo drink, matched in taste to the ketone drink. Days will be randomized. Thereafter, all subjects will take the ketone supplementation drink for two weeks, twice daily.
Our lead scientists for Atypical Bulimia Nervosa research studies include Guido Frank, MD.
