The proposed cross-sectional, case-controlled study will assess the association of Gulf War Illness GWI with dysregulation of major hormonal systems. A total of 90 Veterans 45 Veterans with GWI and 45 Veterans of comparable age, gender, and military experience who deployed but did not develop GWI will be recruited from clinical and community sources. Endocrine disorders can be effectively treated by pharmacological interventions currently available, thus, reducing the time it would take for Veterans to access treatment.
