What makes it special?
Developed with nephrologists and renal nurses, this product is funded for stage 5 chronic kidney disease patients but is suitable for use with reduced kidney function. Renal Vit affords a higher level of compliance with once daily supplement.
How does it work?
People with renal disease have specific requirements for vitamins and minerals. Some can become depleted through diet restrictions and through dialysis. General multivitamins contain some vitamins and minerals that should not be given to renal patients as they are harmful.
Renal Vit provides essential vitamins and minerals in well tolerated at appropriate levels necessary to support those with reduced kidney function. It also omits or limits the use of nutrients that could be potentially harmful, based clinical research
Adults: Take 1 capsule daily or as directed.
Precautions & Contraindications:
- Do not use in patients with known sensitivity to vitamin D. Use with caution in individuals with high calcium levels, primary hyperparathyroidism or disorders of calcium metabolism such as sarcoidosis, hypercalciuria, tuberculosis and lymphomas. Additional vitamin D may raise calcium levels and increase the risk of renal stones and renal failure.
- Exercise caution in people with erythrocyte glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, haemochromatosis, thalassaemia major or sideroblastic anaemia due to the vitamin C content.
- Exercise caution due to zinc content. Amiloride reduces zinc excretion which may lead to zinc accumulation. Supplementation with zinc should be used with caution.
