Katie Lee Joel to Conduct Free, Hands-On, Holiday Cooking Demonstration for Local Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease
Date:12/7/2007

sphorus levels through dietary restriction and dialysis alone, and they generally treat hyperphosphatemia by taking phosphate binders, such as FOSRENOL(R) (lanthanum carbonate), at meals. Phosphate binders "soak up" phosphorus in the gastrointestinal tract before it can be absorbed into the bloodstream, thereby helping patients maintain target blood phosphorus levels.

"We know the holidays can make it even more difficult for CKD Stage 5 patients with hyperphosphatemia to comply with their prescribed dialysis, diet, and phosphate binder treatment. The dietary tips that will be discussed at tomorrow's event, coupled with resources such as the cookbook, can help patients overcome the challenges they face managing their disease everyday," said Joseph Schlitz, vice president, US Renal Commercial Operations, Shire Pharmaceuticals. "Combining these resources with FOSRENOL, an effective phosphate binder with a well-established safety profile, provides patients with the tools they need to achieve and maintain target phosphate levels during the holidays and all year round."

Hyperphosphatemia is difficult to treat because it requires patients to follow a special diet, and comply with a prescribed binder therapy regimen that may require up to 12 pills a day, while attending dialysis sessions. However, patients with hyperphosphatemia may be able to reduce their pill burden to as few as one tablet with each meal with treatments such as FOSRENOL. (Dosing based on as few as three tablets per day. Number of meals per day may vary. To achieve certain doses, additional tablets may be required.)
