Brain Outcomes and Lifestyle in Down Syndrome
We are looking for adults (ages 25-55) with Down syndrome who are interested in learning how what they eat impacts their risk of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Adults with Down syndrome and a caregiver will be asked to attend up to 2 visits at the University of Kansas Medical Center, and 1 remote visit. Study visits will include assessments of how the person with Down syndrome’s brain works, what types of foods they eat, a blood draw, and a brain imaging scan. Adults with Down syndrome who complete the study may choose to enroll in a subsequent weight loss study.
- Age 18-65
- Have a diagnosis of Down syndrome
- BMI 25 to 45kg/m2
- Have a caregiver who routinely interacts with the person with Down Syndrome and is willing to attend a study visit.
