Gastrointestinal Distress Triggers Study

Old Dominion University is interested in participants in a research study examining the prevalence of gastrointestinal distress triggers in distance runners and their contribution to gastrointestinal symptoms during training. In addition, the study will assess the validity and reliability of a gastrointestinal distress questionnaire.

If you participate, you’d be asked to keep track of your training over a month and fill out questionnaires on potential gastrointestinal distress triggers. Total participation time will be 1 to 1.5 hours over a one month period.

To be eligible to participate, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Be age 18-65
  • Be currently running ≥ 20 miles per week
  • Have completed at least one 10-mile run over the past month

This study is being conducted by Patrick Wilson, PhD, RD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Movement Sciences at Old Dominion University. If you are interested in participating or learning more, please email him at pbwilson@odu.edu or call 757-683-4783.
