Sodium Polystyrene Sulfonate Dosage
Granfather was prescribed kayexalate (sodium polystyrene sulfonate) 60gm and then 45gm today and 45gm tomorrow. Shouldnt he be having bm? How long does it take to start workingk?
Kayex not for BM: Kayexalate (sodium polystyrene sulfonate) is a polystyrene salt resin designed to grab onto the excess potassium (dangerous for heart) while in the intestine. It is not to facilitate bm-it actually increases chance of constipation. So, if he is not having bm, don't rely on kayex to help with that. He will likely need other stimulant to help with bm--maybe lactullose etc..Consult his doc. Good luck. ...Read more

If some other form of cooking than microwave was used that has a higher temperature (such as inadvertent cooking in a frying pan, grill, or oven) then i would not eat the food. ...Read more

Friend had thyroid cancer, total thyroidectomy. 15 yr hi-dose Synthroid (thyroxine) as suppression. Kidney eGFR now 47, sodium 131. Any connection likely? Age 70
Not likely related: Hi. It is not likely the history of thyroid cancer and TSH suppression are related to the low eGFR or hyponatremia. eGFR falls with age, and hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte abnormality we see; both have multiple potential causes, but mild TSH suppression is not a likely one. Your friend can talk with his/her endocrinologist to see if there is any connection or needs further work up ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
