DeLand, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/18/2015 --Participating in a Renal Impairment Clinical Trial
There are around 26 million Americans living with chronic kidney disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that as many as 1 in 10 adults have developed some level of renal impairment. There's a critical need for improved methods of prevention and treatment. The team at Avail is looking for adults in DeLand who'd like to participate in a renal impairment clinical trial.
The benefits of clinical trial participation include:
- Access to premium medical care free-of-charge
- Access to medical treatment without needing to have health insurance
- The opportunity to take a more direct role in their health care
Those who participate are not charged for any of the study-related care they receive during the research study. Any additional screenings or medication required during the clinical trial will be provided free of charge. Volunteers in Florida are eligible to receive compensation for their time and any travel required to participate.
Signs and Symptoms of Kidney Disease and Renal Impairment
The kidneys can experience impaired function without producing many noticeable symptoms at first. However the warnings signs will start to mount as waste products begin to build in the body. Unfortunately, it's still possible for renal impairment symptoms to be overlooked until end-stage kidney disease develops or complete kidney failure occurs.
All of the following symptoms could signal the development of kidney disease:
- Excess fluid in the body
- Nausea and vomiting
- Weakness and fatigue
- Loss of appetite
- Urine output increase or decrease
- Trouble sleeping
- Severe muscle cramping or twitching
- Mental impairment
One of the most common causes of acute kidney injury in America is uncontrolled diabetes. This can lead to a condition known as diabetic nephropathy.
It can cause:
- Increased blood pressure
- A loss of excess proteins in the urine
- Higher cholesterol and triglyceride levels
Blood sugar levels can drop as the kidney damage becomes more pronounced, since they won't be able to handle the excess insulin in the blood stream. The team at Avail is also enrolling for their diabetic nephropathy clinical trials.
Qualifying for a Clinical Trial at Avail
Avail Clinical Research is interested in hearing from anyone who would like to participate in a clinical trial.

- Participants are expected to comply with all study-related procedures
