Other After eating a meal, a number of processes in the body regulate how rapidly the stomach empties the meal and enters the small bowel(called stomach emptying). Differences in how quickly or slowly nutrients enter the small bowel can have important consequences for factors such as absorption of nutrients and medicines into the blood stream, as well as blood sugar control. Our study is looking at a couple of different blood sugar levels to measure the effect on stomach emptying and also the effect on the absorption of paracetamol.

Help us investigate the effect of blood glucose levels on stomach emptying and the body's ability to absorb paracetamol under these conditions.

An honorarium of $18 an hour will be paid for your time spent at study visits.
