ONE ALPHA (ALFACALCIDOL)

One Alpha Description

One Alpha is a form of vitamin D that your doctor may prescribe if your calcium levels require correcting as a result of kidney failure, osteomalacia, or hypo/hyperparathyroidism. Most of the population obtains vitamin D from their diet of oily fish and milk products, as well as from exposure to sunlight’s ultra violet B rays. The ultraviolet B rays convert a certain compound in the epidermis of your skin to a pre-vitamin D3. Then your body converts the pre-vitamin D3 to vitamin D3.

When this vitamin is converted in your liver then kidneys, it becomes the ‘active’ form, which is calcitriol that acts as a hormone responsible for controlling calcium and phosphate absorption from your gut, calcium and phosphate levels in your blood, and a healthy turnover of bone.

Balance Calcium Levels Quickly with One Alpha

When taken as directed, One Alpha or generic Alfacalcidol is quickly converted in your liver into calcitriol, the active form of vitamin D. This means if you are in kidney failure, One Alpha is not affected because it has bypassed your kidneys as one of the steps to converting into its active form. For those dealing with osteomalacia or other bone diseases, One Alpha is converted more rapidly so your calcium levels are balanced quickly as well. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions Treated by One Alpha

Renal osteodystrophy (kidney failure) is a bone disease that is a result of your kidney’s inability to maintain appropriate calcium and phosphate levels in your blood. Most people on dialysis are affected by this bone disease and can benefit from taking One Alpha.

Limited exposure to sunlight, being an older adult with dark skin, and strict vegans can be at risk for vitamin D deficiency and should discuss additional ways of obtaining vitamin D to avoid other health risks, including bone pain and muscle weakness.

Before One Alpha is Prescribed

Ask your doctor if One Alpha is safe for you to take if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions and allergies with your doctor and list any current OTC and Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or other vitamin supplements to determine if One Alpha is right for you.

One Alpha Precautions

Do not skip doctor or lab appointments as regular blood tests are required to make certain your calcium and phosphate levels in your blood are okay and whether any adjustments to your dosage should be made. Do not start, stop, or change your dosage of One Alpha or other medications without talking to your doctor first.
