Eligible participants must be 18 or older and have three of the following conditions that contribute to metabolic syndrome: high blood sugar levels, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and a large waistline.  

Individuals will be compensated for participating in the study. People who have a history of heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes or bariatric surgery are not eligible. Call 585-484-7613, email elmsummer@rit.edu or visit elmtrial.org for information.
