Does Ketosteril Work in Treating Renal Failure

2013-01-11 17:12

Ketosteril is commonly prescribed to people with renal failure when their glomerular filtration rate (GFR) reduces less than 25 ml/min. Does ketosteril work will in treating renal failure?

Amino acid is an important organic compound including essential amino acid and nonessential amino acid. The former one can be synthesized by body, but the later is mainly from our protein supplement. Ketosteril can use the nitrogen in nonessential amino acid to form amino acid. Meanwhile, it can reduce the formation of urea. Therefore, it can reduce the production of metabolic wastes in blood significantly. When the patients with renal failure are on ketosteril, a low-protein diet is needed. Recommended daily protein intake should be controlled in 40g for the adult.

Ketosteril has the following curative effects in treating renal failure.

※ Relieve the symptoms of Kidney Failure by reducing metabolic wastes production

※ Protect residual renal function and delay the disease progression

※ Provide amino acid supplement and improve malnutrition state

※ Reduce protein in urine

※ Correct metabolic disorder, secondary hyperthyroidism and renal bone disease

※ Improve lipid metabolism disorder

※ Improve endocrine disorder

However, when people with renal failure are on ketosteril, they may develop hypercalcemia which may cause heart problem. If it happens, the patients are recommended to reduce the supplement of vitamin D. If the condition occurs persistently, the dose of ketosteril should be reduced. Also, the supplement of other calcium should also be limited.

While ketosteril has so many effects, it can not improve renal function or stop renal failure progression. As the disease progression, its effect will become less and less. Therefore, it is only an assistant treatment for renal failure. To stop the disease progression and help the patients avoid end stage renal disease, treatment should be used to restore kidney structure and improve renal function.
