Recruit a Patient
We are always happy to receive new referrals to the Genetics of Obesity Study (GOOS). We require some clinical and anthropometric information and blood samples for measurement of leptin, insulin and for DNA extraction.
The entry criteria for our study are:
Severe obesity (BMI > 3SD above the mean) of early onset (before age 10 years).
If you have any questions about the suitability of a patient, which samples to send, how to send them or any other questions, please contact us
Download the “GOOS information pack” for all the information necessary for you to refer a patient
We also have an information leaflet for healthcare professionals. Download it here.
