Can Ketosteril Reduce BUN Level

2012-09-19 10:41

Ketosteril is usually prescribed to the patients with renal insufficiency when GFR is less than 25ml/min. It can work better along with a low-protein diet. As BUN level is an important hallmark of renal function, many patients are wondering if ketosteril can reduce its level.

In renal insufficiency,to BUN level, a low-protein diet is usually recommended to the patients. As the essential amino acid in body mainly comes from the proteins in foods, a low-protein diet can cause an insufficient supplement of essential amino acid to body.

Ketosteril can make use of the urea in nonessential amino acid to synthetize amino acid. In this way, it can reduce the production of urea, thus lowering BUN level. On the other hand, a low-protein diet can reduce the excretion of protein in urine, which is helpful in elevating plasm protein level and improving malnutrition.

Along with reducing BUN level, ketosteril also has the following effects in treating renal insufficiency.

* As it can reduce the accumulation of metabolic products of proteins, it can relieve uremic symptoms.

* Preserve the residual renal function and delay the progression of renal insufficiency.

* Correct endocrine dyscrasia and lipid metabolism disorder.

* Improve the complications of renal insufficiency.

* Reduce the protein degradation and improve malnutrition.

* Ketosteril is also a kind of phosphorus binder. It can help the patients on dialysis reduce phosphorus and parathormone levels in blood.

In the early stages of renal insufficiency, ketosteril is effective in managing the symptoms of the disease. However, it can not stop the disease progression at all. With the progression of the disease, the curative effect of ketosteril will become less and less.

As high BUN level results from decreased renal function, the key to lower its level is to restore renal function. If the metabolic function and excretory function of the kidneys improve, the BUN level will reduce completely.
