Scale Down for Endometrial Cancer
Scale Down: A Randomized, Controlled Weight Management Intervention for Women With Endometrial Cancer
This proposal will pilot a weight management program for patients with endometrial cancer, the cancer most associated with obesity. If successful, this pilot could be expanded to include obese women with other gynecologic cancers (ovarian and cervical) and could be expanded and adapted for use not only upon completion of treatment, but during chemotherapy or radiation. Furthermore, other obstetricians and gynecologists could use this strategy for obese women as a practical cancer prevention strategy for obesity-associated cancers.

Study Arms / Comparison Groups
Arm 1: ScaleDown (only first 16 patients)
Description: Baseline quality of life and image surveys Weigh themselves every day on the provided Wi-Fi Scale Personalized feedback with text message comes as soon as participants step on the scale At the 6 month time period, quality of life and body image surveys will be completed and in-office anthropometric assessments will be completed At the end of 6 months, the participants will also receive the "Enhanced Usual Care Packet" which provides printed material from the American Cancer Society Website Only 16 participants were in this arm because ScaleDown went out of business At 12 month follow-up weight will be abstracted from medical record
* Includes publications given by the data provider as well as publications identified by National Clinical Trials Identifier (NCT ID) in Medline.
