Can I Still Take Ketosteril on Dialysis

Can I Still Take Ketosteril on DialysisIf your kidney disease has progressed into end stage, you must be familiar with both ketosteril and dialysis. Ketosteril is used to prevent and treat protein metabolism disorder caused by chronic renal insufficiency, while dialysis is one life-saving treatment for kidney failure patients. Can patients still take ketosteril on dialysis?

This medication is usually recommended when glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is less than 25ml/min. To support the effects of this medication, patients are always suggest to follow a low-protein diet plan and the protein intake should be less than 40g. Because it can supplement essential amino acids and reduce the formation of uremic waste products, this medicine can achieve the following benefits:

- Protect the remaining kidney function

- Manage renal hyperphosphatemia and secondary hyperparathyroidism

- Improve renal bone disease

- Reduce high creatinine level

- Slow down the progression of kidney disease

The only obvious side effect of ketosteril is hypercalcemia, so patients who are taking ketosteril should pay attention to vitamin D and calcium intake.

Dialysis for Kidney Failure patients

Dialysis is one blood purification method that can help cleanse the blood and maintain patients' basic life. However, as time goes on, dialysis is more likely to cause more and more side effects and complications.

To get therapeutic effects from these two treatment options safely and quickly, patients are suggested to consult the their doctor or doctor online directly.
