Healthy, overweight volunteers aged 18 to 65 and volunteers diagnosed with type two diabetes within the last three years, also aged 18 to 65, are needed for a metabolic study. We need you to help us investigate whether healthy volunteers, type two diabetics and ketosis-prone diabetics make an important compound called arginine in different amounts. Healthy, overweight volunteers should have no chronic medical conditions and all who reply should consume a diet adequate in calories and protein. Women must not be pregnant.
