SHE: Stress, Hormones, and Eating
A UCSF Research Study
The Stress, Hormones, and Eating (SHE) Study is a research study being conducted at the University California San Francisco Parnassus Campus. This study seeks to better understand how women’s levels of natural opioids in the brain are related to weight and cravings for certain comfort foods. Our ultimate goal is to eventually come up with a biological test that will help people know how opioid dependent they are on certain comfort foods and what type of weight interventions might help them the most. This study is the first step toward this goal.
