What is Renagel (Sevelamer Hydrochloride) prescribed for?

Kidney disease can affect your body’s ability to clean your blood, filter extra water out of your blood, and help control your blood pressure. It can also affect red blood cell production and vitamin D metabolism needed for bone health.

This medication is used to lower high blood pressure levels in patients who are on dialysis due to a severe kidney disease. Dialysis removes some phosphate from your blood, but it is difficult to remove enough to keep your phosphate levels balanced. Decreasing blood phosphate levels can help you keep your bones strong and prevent unsafe build-up of minerals in your body and possibly decrease the risk of heart disease and strokes that may be a result from high phosphate levels. This medication, Renagel, works by holding onto phosphate from the diet so that it may pass out of your body.
