    Got an invite to a clinical trial

    Post by graham64 on Wed Mar 16 2016, 22:53

    Got a letter from my surgery today informing me of a clinical trial I could possibly participate in  Shocked I've googled the study and here it is


    The study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled (corn oil), parallel group design that will enroll approximately 13,000 patients with hypertriglyceridemia and low HDL and high risk for CVD to be randomized 1:1 to either corn oil + statin or Epanova + statin, once daily, for approximately 3-5 years as determined when the number of MACE outcomes is reached.

    https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02104817

    Now I just don't know why I been sent the invite as (1) I don't have Hypertriglyceridemia last was 0.65 (2) don't have low HDL last was 2.26 (3) I'm intolerant of statins and it's down on my records

    I heard they wanted to do a study on you, to find out how high your pulse went, when it came around to your turn to buy a round of drinks. You have used every excuse under the sun to get out of paying. I hope they have a defibrillator on standby when you get the bill. mrgreen

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Sounds fishy to me (Epanova sounds suspiciously like prescription fish oil). 

    Even more fishy is the use of corn oil as the placebo, I was just rereading something on the original Rose Corn Oil trial which found it INCREASED CVD risk.

    You should write back and tell them your current trigs and HDL and how you achieved them and ask to be studied for that.

    I'm sure their not interested how I achieved my low trigs and high HDL unless it was by means of pharmaceuticals no $$$$ in that Wink  

    Best part is they expect you to participate in a trial and only pay you reasonable travel expenses

    Well at least you were invited and offered expenses, I was put in a trial without my permission or knowledge, or so I assume when they took me off the Losartan I'd been on for years and put me on Olmesartan for six months, then switched me back again.

    Send them David Unwin's number?

    I would think there are lots of diabetics unwittingly opted in to trials especially of the latest BG medications that don't have long term safety data
