Effects of amiloride on walking ability in patients with peripheral artery disease
The purpose of the study is to determine the effects of amiloride on the blood pressure response to walking in PAD patients and healthy controls.
In each visit, you will be asked to walk on a treadmill. You will also be asked to take capsules prior to visit 2 and 3. The capsules for one visit will be a drug called amiloride (10mg, in 2 capsules with 5mg of amiloride in each capsule), which was traditionally used to lower blood pressure. The other capsules will be a placebo (no active medication). A blood sample will be drawn at each visit.
You will receive $25 per hour for your participation in this research study
