Is Ketosteril effective for patients with Renal Failure? Is there side effects if taking it for long time? Can Ketoseril lower serum creatinine? This article talks about the effect of Ketosteril in treating Renal Failure. Hope it can help.
Ketosteril is a kind of compound medicine contains one kind of hydroxyl
calcium, four kinds of ketone calcium and five kinds of amino acid. It is often
used for patients whose GFR is lower than 25ml/min. Recently people pay more
attention to dietary therapy in slowing down the progressing of chronic kidney
Therefore, the Kidney Disease Association of The United States, protein
nutrition experts for kidney disease in China and kidney disease guidelines all
recommend Ketosteril and low protein diet as important measures for treating
kidney disease. It is used for kidney damage due to protein metabolism
According to the ultrafiltration theory, protein intake seems the main reason
that causes further decline of kidney function. Nearly all the patients with
Chronic Renal Failure have protein and amino acid disorders and negative
nitrogen balance. Therefore, limiting protein intake is an important part of
conservative therapy for Chronic Renal Failure. While protecting the kidney
function, Ketosteril and low protein diet can correct sugar metabolism disorders
from various aspects so as to avoid the aggravation of kidney disease. It can
also correct lipid metabolic disorder and slow down the progressing of Renal
However, taking Ketosteril for long time can lead to Hypercalcemia.
Ketosteril also contains phenylalanine, so patients with genetic benzene acetone
urine should be careful when taking this medicine. When hypercalcemia happens
continuously, patients have to reduce the dose of Ketosteril and the intake of
other calcareous foods and vitamin D.
For patients with Chronic Kidney Failure, Ketosteril can effectively lower
serum creatinine. However, it is lowering the creatinine by intestinal
detoxification, but not repairing the kidneys and recover its own function of
detoxification. It cannot achieve the purpose of treating the kidney disease. In
order to treat Chronic Renal Failure fundamentally, we have to start from the
root cause. We suggest patients use combined therapy of both Chinese medicine
and western medicine. Protect the remaining kidney function and prevent the
further progressing of the disease. Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital use
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to repair the renal intrinsic cells, rebuild
original structure of the kidneys and effectively block the renal fibrosis. In
this way, the kidney function will be recovered and the creatinine level will
naturally come down.
