What we are studying
The study consist of three different visits. We will measure your degree of bitter taste using bitter melon juice in the first visit. The second visit you will be given the bitterant orally and will have blood work, autonomic measuring, and the electrical signals from your stomach measured (both non-invasive). The third visit you will have the bitterant given through a naso-enteric tube (tube inserted through your nose and down past your stomach to the first part of your intestines) that will be placed by our radiology department. You will undergo the same testing as before in the second visit.
Yes, details will be given in the email.
