PhosLo Tablets uses and description

Sort by popularity
PhosLo Tablets - Calcium is a mineral that is needed for many functions of the body, especially bone formation and maintenance. Calcium can also bind to other minerals such as phosphate, and aid in their removal from the body.

PhosLo Tablets is used to control phosphate levels to keep them from getting too high in people with kidney failure.

PhosLo Tablets may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Patients with advanced renal insufficiency (creatinine clearance less than 30 ml/min) exhibit phosphate retention and some degree of hyperphosphatemia. The retention of phosphate plays a pivotal role in causing secondary hyperparathyroidism associated with osteodystrophy, and soft-tissue calcification. The mechanism by which phosphate retention leads to hyperparathyroidism is not clearly delineated. Therapeutic efforts directed toward the control of hyperphosphatemia include reduction in the dietary intake of phosphate, inhibition of absorption of phosphate in the intestine with phosphate binders, and removal of phosphate from the body by more efficient methods of dialysis. The rate of removal of phosphate by dietary manipulation or by dialysis is insufficient. Dialysis patients absorb 40% to 80% of dietary phosphorus. Therefore, the fraction of dietary phosphate absorbed from the diet needs to be reduced by using phosphate binders in most renal failure patients on maintenance dialysis. PhosLo Tablets when taken with meals combines with dietary phosphate to form insoluble calcium phosphate which is excreted in the feces. Maintenance of serum phosphorus below 6.0 mg/dl is generally considered as a clinically acceptable outcome of treatment with phosphate binders. PhosLo Tablets is highly soluble at neutral pH, making the calcium readily available for binding to phosphate in the proximal small intestine.

Oral Hyperphosphataemia

Adult: Initially 3-4 g daily. Usual range: 6-12 g daily. To control hyperphosphataemia in chronic renal failure Initially 1.334 g (338 mg of calcium). May increase dosage gradually according to serum phosphate conc, provided hypercalcaemia does not occur.

Indications: Hyperphosphataemia.
