  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to find out how exenatide causes weight loss. Specifically, the study is assessing how exenatide may change how people take in energy (energy intake), as well as how it may effect how people use energy (energy expenditure).

Intervention Details:
    Drug: Exenatide
    Exenatide 10mcg subcutaneously BID x 28 additional days of treatment.
    Other Name: Byetta
Detailed Description:

The bioenergetics study is looking at how and why the diabetes drug exenatide causes people to lose weight.Bioenergetics is the study of how your body burns calories.

Adults 18-65 who do not have diabetes and have a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 40 may be eligible. Women who could get pregnant must be on birth control during the study and women who are pregnant cannot participate in the study.

Subjects will take exenatide for 12 weeks. There are 6 study visits in the UW Hospital General Clinical Research Center. Visits range from 1 to 6 hours and include blood and urine tests, resting metabolic rate testing over a four hour period, physical exam, ECG, and a be bone mineral density testing at another clinic during 2 clinic visits of the study.

All study procedures and testing are free of charge.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years

  • Absence of weight change greater than 3 kg in the previous 6 months

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Women who are pregnant or lactating

  • Use of weight loss medication
  • A history of metabolic disease i.e. renal, endocrine, hepatic or gastrointestinal disease that would impact the outcome of the study
  • Presence of medical conditions that are known to affect energy expenditure (i.e. hyperthyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, AIDS among others)

  • Use of medications that can affect GI motility
  • History of organ transplantation
  • Other comorbid conditions which may preclude the subject's ability to complete the study
  • Use of a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor such as acetazolamide
