Kidney Failure in Dogs

How to Improve the Survival of Dogs With Kidney Failure

Hyperphosphataemia in patients with chronic kidney disease, particularly those on dialysis, can be ameliorated by oral phosphate binders in conjunction with dietary phosphate restriction.

Although phosphate binders reduce serum phosphate in these patients, it remains uncertain whether they improve clinical outcomes.

Calcium-based binders are frequently used, but their popularity is waning due to emerging evidence of accelerated vascular calcification.

The use of aluminium-based binders has been limited by a perceived risk of aluminium accumulation.

The non-calcium-based phosphate binders – sevelamer hydrochloride, lanthanum carbonate and sucroferric oxyhydroxide – have become available and subsidised by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme for patients on dialysis.

The pill burden and adverse effects (particularly gastrointestinal intolerance) associated with the expensive, non-calcium – non-aluminum phosphate binders (sevelamer ) often contribute to poor medication adherence.

Calcium carbonate is the most common form of phosphate binder prescribed, particularly in non-dialysis chronic kidney disease. It is typically given to patients with advanced chronic kidney disease, including those receiving dialysis. As with all phosphate binders, calcium-based binders are most effective when taken with meals (which also limits calcium absorption).10 They should be prescribed in conjunction with moderate dietary phosphate restriction, ideally supervised by an accredited practising dietitian. Phosphate-rich foods with a high phosphate to protein ratio (processed foods, fast foods and cola drinks) are best avoided, while foods with a high biologic value (e.g. meats and eggs) should be retained to maintain nutritional status.11,12

Calcium-containing phosphate binders
Calcium binders have historically been an appealing first choice, because they also address the hypocalcaemia that is often seen with hyperphosphataemia in patients with chronic kidney disease. However, hypercalcaemia and accelerated vascular calcification are the main concerns with calcium-containing phosphate binders, particularly when they are combined with vitamin D therapy.5,15-18 The Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative Guidelines suggest that doses should not exceed 1500 mg/day of elemental calcium,19 based on evidence that this produces a positive calcium balance (excess body stores of calcium leading to soft-tissue and vessel calcification) in chronic kidney disease.20 However, there is little evidence of patient outcomes to support this recommendation. Another common adverse effect of these drugs is gastrointestinal upset, particularly constipation. The other main advantage of calcium-based binders is that they are inexpensive.

Calcium-based binders were associated with significantly lower serum phosphate (mean difference 0.07 mmol/L) when compared with sevelamer. However, sevelamer was associated with a lower risk of hypercalcaemia (risk ratio 0.45, 95% CI* 0.35–0.59) and a higher risk of adverse gastrointestinal events (risk ratio 1.58, 95% CI 1.11–1.25). There was no difference in all-cause mortality between calcium-based binders and sevelamer.51

Phosphate binders therefore effectively reduce serum phosphate in patients with chronic kidney disease, but it is uncertain whether they improve clinical outcomes. There may be a mortality difference between calcium-based and non-calcium-based binders, but it is not clear if this reflects a harmful effect of calcium-based binders, a beneficial effect of non-calcium-based binders or both.

  20. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your website and in depth information you present.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material.
    Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS
    feeds to my Google account.

  21. Simply desire to say your article is as astounding. The clearness in your post is just
    spectacular and i could assume you are an expert on this subject.
    Well with your permission allow me to grab your RSS feed to keep updated with forthcoming post.
    Thanks a million and please continue the gratifying work.

  22. Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix
    this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Many thanks!

  23. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep
    a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!)
    Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented
    it. Too cool!

  24. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more
    useful than ever before.

  25. Excellent blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Cheers!

  28. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
