Participating in a Renal Impairment Clinical Research Trial
With about 26 million Americans living with chronic kidney disease, therapies that can prevent renal failure are desperately needed. These improved kidney treatments can't be developed properly without the data obtained in clinical research trials. The research team at Avail is always looking for people who would like to take a more direct role in their health care.
The medications that save so many from having to rely on hemodialysis wouldn't be available if it weren't for extensive clinical studies. Unfortunately, this is not something that many people realize and clinics often find it difficult to meet their enrollment goals. Avail Clinical Research seeks to change this trend by educating more people in Central Florida about the benefits of clinical research trial participation.
These benefits include:
- Access to premium medical care at no charge to you
- Access to medical treatment without needing to have health insurance
- The opportunity to take a more direct role in their health care
Participants are not charged for any of the study-related care they'll receive during the clinical research trial. Additional screenings and medication that's administered during the study will also be provided free of charge. Volunteers can receive compensation for the time and travel required.
Renal Impairment Symptoms
During the earliest stages, renal impairment won't produce many noticeable symptoms if any. Symptoms become more prominent as kidney failure progresses and waste products build up in the body. Most cases of renal impairment are caused by underlying conditions like high blood pressure (hypertension) and diabetes.
Advanced stage kidney disease can produce the following symptoms:
- Difficult, painful urination
- Nausea and vomiting
- Fatigue, weakness
- Foamy urine
- Pink, dark urine (blood in urine)
- Increased need to urinate (especially at night)
- Increased thirst
- Swollen face, hands, abdomen, ankles, feet
- Puffy eyes
Major Risk Factors for Renal Impairment & Kidney Disease
It's estimated that nearly 1 in every 3 Americans is at risk for developing kidney disease-- most don't know it. These are the major factors that put people at greater risk:
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Being over the age of 60
- Family medical history of kidney failure
The following aren't considered "major" risk factors but are still notable:
- Previous instances of kidney stones
- Long-term smoking
- Cardiovascular disease
