Renvela Sachets Description

Renvela Sachets contain Sevelamer Carbonate, a phosphate binder that helps remove phosphate from your body if you have chronic kidney disease (CKD) and are on dialysis. This is an artificial process you go through to eliminate waste, including extra phosphorous and excess water from your blood because your kidneys are no longer able to perform this function. Your body needs phosphorous for building and repairing bones and teeth and to help nerve function and muscles contract. The contents of Renvela Sachets are to be mixed with water which produces a citrus flavor.

How Renvela Sachets Eliminates Excess Phosphate From Your Body

Renvela Sachets bind or hold on to phosphorous in the food you eat so it cannot be absorbed in your digestive tract. Renvela Sachets then makes it way out of your body and is excreted in your stool. The contents of Renvela Sachets cannot be absorbed and, unlike other phosphorous binders, it does not contain calcium or metal so there is no buildup in your body. Phosphorous and calcium are important for your health but their levels must be regulated to avoid damage to your body.

Conditions Treated by Renvela Sachets

Although dialysis removes some of the phosphorous from your blood, you will have to do your part to change your diet so you can help reduce the amount of phosphate in the food you eat. A nutritionist can help you plan healthier meals by providing a list of foods that are high in phosphate, including dark cola drinks, canned iced tea, dairy products, and packaged meals.

The leading causes of kidney failure are diabetes and high blood pressure. If you are able to control your blood sugar levels and/or lower your blood pressure, you can slow down the progression of kidney disease. You should eat healthier, exercise, quit smoking, and see your doctor regularly for blood and urine testing. Renvela Sachets are not a cure for chronic kidney disease, but can help to maintain safer levels of phosphorous in your body and delay the next stage of chronic kidney disease.

Before You Take Renvela Sachets

Ask your doctor about the risks or benefits associated with Renvela Sachets if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal, dietary or vitamin supplements so your doctor can determine if Renvela Sachets are safe for you. Calcium and other mineral supplements should not be taken unless your doctor agrees it is safe to do so.

Renvela Sachets Precautions and Proper Use

Renvela Sachets should be mixed with water as directed and consumed right away with a meal. If you take other medications, do so one hour before or three hours after taking Renvela Sachets as the binding effect can make your other drugs less effective. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and never share them with anyone else.
