Renvela How to Take

Sevelamer carbonate belongs to the class of medications called phosphate binders. Phosphate is made up mostly of the mineral phosphorus, which is an important component of normal bone structure, cell metabolism, and cell function.

In the body, the kidneys help keep the amount of phosphorus in the blood at a relatively constant level. For people with kidney problems, as their kidney function decreases, less phosphorus is removed from the body, potentially leading to a condition known as hyperphosphatemia (high phosphate levels in the blood). High levels of phosphorus in the blood can lead to problems with the strength and structure of bones. This condition is known as renal osteodystrophy.

When taken with meals, sevelamer carbonate prevents the absorption of phosphates from food by binding to the phosphate. It is used specifically to control high levels of phosphate (and therefore phosphorus) in the blood of people with severe Kidney Disease, known as end stage renal disease (ESRD), who are receiving dialysis (hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis).
