Endometriosis Study

Join a no-cost research study to see if dietary change can reduce pain and inflammation from endometriosis! 

Nutrition experts with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine are testing whether a low-fat, plant-based diet can improve endometriosis symptoms. Qualified participants in the intervention group will receive study-related: 

  • Weekly online group sessions with physicians, dietitians, and cooking instructors 
  • Nutrition education, practical tips, and meal planning 
  • Cooking demonstrations to help with the transition to a low-fat, plant-based diet 
  • One-on-one consultations with a dietitian 
  • Lab work to measure specific health measures 

Endometriosis is a condition that affects 2-10% of American females between the ages of 25-40. Symptoms can include excessive menstrual cramps, heavy menstrual flow, pain during intercourse, and infertility. Endometriosis is diagnosed by a gynecologist or other qualified health care provider. Potential participants must be medically diagnosed with endometriosis to take part in this research study.  

If you have been diagnosed with endometriosis, can travel to the Washington, D.C. area for lab tests, and are not currently following a low-fat, plant-based diet, please fill out the interest survey and one of our research coordinators will contact you! This research study is available at no cost for all participants.
