Treatment to lower high phosphorous levels in Chronic Kidney Disease
● Drugs that may be prescribed by your doctor:
-Aluminum hydroxide - can be used to bind phosphate in your blood. However, many do not use this, because of fear of aluminum toxicity.
-Calcium Carbonate tablets - This is the most common medication prescribed for increased blood phosphate levels (hyperphosphatemia). These pills, taken 3 times a day with meals, will bind to the phosphate in your bloodstream, and lower your blood phosphate levels.
● Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Unlike over-the-counter medicines, TCM can treat kidney disease from the root, namely, improving renal function. The effective ingredients can expand blood vessels, fight against inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus improving blood circulation. Then, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair damaged renal tissues. Therefore, kidneys can maintain electrolyte balance. So excess creatinine can be discharged effectively.
