    UCSF Shape Up Study

    Hi there, Thanks for the question! Participants will not receive reports on their metabolic blood markers (Glucose, Triglycerides, Cholesterol, etc.). We conduct all specimen analysis, with the exception of the CBC test, at our partner site (Pennington Biomedical Research Center). We de-identify the specimen that is shipped and do not receive the results immediately. What health information adult participants will receive: The DXA report will tell you about fat, lean, and bone mass. The 3D optical scan will give you a 3D image of your body shape, along with hundreds of measurements (circumferences, lengths, widths, etc.), check out fit3d.com for more information. The complete blood count test includes the following; white blood cell count, red blood cell count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, and platelet count. Feel free to ask any other questions, we are happy to clarify any details.

    Do you live in the San Francisco Bay Area? Are you interested in learning your body fat, muscle and bone status? You may be interested in participating in the Shape Up! Study. We are funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), so there is NO cost to you for participating in the study. ALL study procedures will take place at University of California, San Francisco (Parnassus Campus) The goals of the study: Provide phenotype descriptors of health using body shape, derive predictive models of how body shape relates to regional and total body composition and bone mineral density over a wide ranges of ages, BMI, and ethnicity for both sexes. Examine the relationship of optical body composition estimates and metabolic risk factors. If you are between 5-17 years old, you might be eligible for Shape Up! Kids (pdf) If you are between 18-80 years old, you might be eligible for Shape Up! Adults (pdf) Eligibility: able to lay flat on your back for up to 10 minutes able to stand without aid for 2 minutes no metal or artifacts that cannot be removed Benefits: A $50 Amazon gift card Body composition reports (DXA report, MRI (for kids only), whole body 3D scan) Complete blood count report Please email us at bodycompstudies@ucsf.edu or call us at (415) 741-3454 if you are interested in participating.
