Barriers to Weightloss and Exercise Survey

Post by Shelly » Fri Apr 06, 2018 7:39 pm

Participation request for research investigating the specific barriers to weight loss and exercise in idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

IIH UK's research Reps Amanda Denton (Plymouth University) and Krystal Hemmings (The University of Derby) would like to invite you to take part in a research study, which is investigating the correlations between weight and physical activity levels with headaches and quality of life in individuals with IIH, as well as the specific barriers to weight loss and exercise.

Taking part will involve taking measurements of your weight (with minimal or no clothing on) and height (not wearing footwear) first thing in the morning and then answering an online questionnaire which should take 40 minutes to one hour of your time. A greater understanding of the relationship between these specific factors and an exploration of the barriers to weight loss and exercise in individuals with IIH could guide clinical treatment and advice and ultimately lead to the development of interventions.

If you would like to take part, please click on the link below which will provide you with more information.

Thank you for your time!
