What are the treatment options for a patient who has hyperphosphatemia, hypercalcemia, and chronic renal failure?

What could be the treatment options for a patient who has hyperphosphatemia and hypercalcemia, and also has chronic renal failure.?
Phosphate. Hi. How bad is your creatinine/eGFR? You probably need a low phosphate diet, phosphate binders (e.g. sevelamer), and maybe dialysis. What is your PTH? Probably high. You might need a vitamin D analog (e.g., doxercalciferol or paricalcitol) or cinacalcet. Talk with your nephrologist! . Read more...
Can you tell me for a patient who has hyperphosphatemia and hypercalcemia, and also has chronic renal failure, what to do?
See the dietician! Diet can be problematic in dialysis patients/chronic renal failure patients. Many foods contain phosphorus; diaysis patients often take phosphate binders to help them excrete this. Kidney patients must watch calories, protein, and salt also. My best advice is to have a consult with the dietician at your local kidney center. They can help with recipies and ideas to keep you healthier. Read more...
