The Department of Human Nutrition at Glasgow University is looking for pregnant and non-pregnant women aged between 18 and 40 to take part in a study to examine iodine levels. The aim of the study is to provide greater understanding between dietary habits and iodine sufficiency as well as promoting healthier diets in Glasgow, as iodine is essential to healthy growth and metabolism for women and their babies.

So what would you have to do?

Fill out a small food questionnaire on your dietary habits, a urine sample, a blood spot (finger prick), weight, height and waist circumference and have your blood pressure taken. The measurements are unobtrusive and will take no longer than five minutes, and all results are confidential.

Not only will you be involved in exciting research but you will also be entered into a prize draw where you have a one in fifty chance of winning £100!
