How effective are Kremezin tablets 500 mg for progressive chronic renal failure from Japan?
Kremezin tablets contain a carbon absorbent obtained by oxidizing and reducing at high temperature activated carbon, derived from hydrocarbon. These tablets adsorb uremic toxins such as indoxyl sulfate and p-cresyl sulfate and the toxins’ precursors in the gastrointestinal tract and help to exert those with fecal masses. Studies show that Kremezin tablets delay the decline in renal function and prolong the time to the initiation of dialysis, especially in patients with progressive chronic kidney disease (M. Asai, S. Kamakura, M. Kikuchi. Review of the efficacy of AST-120 (KREMEZIN®) on renal function in chronic kidney disease patients. Renal Failure, 2019; 41(1): 47–56).
Who should use Kremezin tablets 500 mg for progressive chronic renal failure?
Kremezin tablets are effective for treatment of patients with progressive chronic kidney disease. They improve such uremic symptoms as:
- loss of appetite,
- bad breath,
Moreover, tablets delay initiation of dialysis so we particularly recommend using them for patients who are not receiving hemodialysis yet.
