Calcium Acetate (Phos Binder)

Drug Info for calcium acetate (phos binder)

Calcium acetate is used to control high blood levels of phosphorus in people with kidney disease who are on dialysis (medical treatment to clean the blood when the kidneys are not working properly). Calcium acetate is in a class of medications called phosphate binders. It binds phosphorus that you get from foods in your diet and prevents it from being absorbed into your blood stream.

Calcium Acetate works to lower high levels of phosphate in the body. High levels of phosphate in the blood can lead to low bone density (making them weak), they can attract unsafe minerals in the body, and may also increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. Calcium Acetate is a mineral that works by sticking on to the phosphate in your bloodstream and have it passed out through the body by urine. This medication should not be taken if calcium level in the body is high.
