Calcium acetate is used to treat hyperphosphatemia (too much phosphate in the blood) in patients with end stage kidney disease who are on dialysis.
Calcium acetate works by binding with the phosphate in the food you eat, so that it is eliminated from the body.
Dosage : The recommended initial dose of calcium acetate for adult dialysis patients is 2 tablets with each meal. The dosage may be increased gradually to reduce blood phosphate levels below 6 mg/dl without causing hypercalcemia. Most patients require 3-4 tablets with each meal.
