Urgent Care Hawaii announces a new Lactose Intolerance Study and we are looking for study participants. All patients with a diagnosed or un-diagnosed history of any intolerance (bloating, cramping, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, etc.) to dairy products can call and be pre-screened for this study.

If you’re lactose intolerant, it means that your body can’t digest lactose, which is the sugar in milk or dairy products. Symptoms can include gas, bloating, cramps and diarrhea. These can happen after you eat or drink foods and beverages that have lactose. Usually, this happens because your body doesn’t produce enough lactase, an enzyme made in your small intestine that breaks down lactose.

What can I Expect when I Join a Clinical Trial?

You will be given a written Informed Consent to read and all your questions will be answered to your satisfaction prior to any testing or procedures being performed for the study. All procedures, medications, and tests are outlined clearly in the written Informed consent. Some trials require lab tests. In addition, your medical history will be reviewed thoroughly. Your health will continue to be monitored during the trial.

Who can Join a Clinical Trial?

All trials have guidelines for participation called Inclusion criteria which allow participation and exclusion criteria which do not allow participation. Most of these criteria pertain to the disease under study, previous treatments for that disease, or other medical diagnoses.

What are the Benefits of Joining a Clinical Trial?

Some possible benefits include:
• Comprehensive study-related medical care.
• You are playing an active role in your health care.
• Access to state-of-the-art care that might not be available otherwise.
• Contributing to medical research in an area that needs additional treatment options.
