Characterizing the Night Eating Syndrome

Are you troubled by getting up at night to eat? Here at the University of Pennsylvania we have conducted studies to help people with this problem. In order to gather more information about the symptoms associated with the night eating syndrome, we have posted a short questionnaire. Once the questionnaire is completed we will contact you with more information about the syndrome.  We are beginning to recruit for a new study. We can provide more details to you if you are interested.

Please feel free to complete the questionnaire, even if you have no interest in participating in the study. We gather information regarding the symptoms of NES from people all over the world, and completing this questionnaire will help us to continue to learn more about this complex disorder. You understand that every attempt will be made by the investigators to maintain all information collected in this study strictly confidential, except as may be required by court order or by law. If any publication or presentations result from this research, you will not be identified by name. If you are unable to complete the questionnaire or do not have NES but want more information for someone you know who does, click here . Call 215-898-2823 or e-mail Dr. Kelly Allisonwith further questions.
