Default Phosphorus Binders

I would like to know anyone's results from using either aluminum hydroxide or Epakitin to bind phosphorus in cats with kidney disease. I have read conflicting articles for both. I want to pick the best product to help my cat. Also Lanthanum carbonate is mentioned, but not much info on it.

While I have dealt with CRF, my kitty did not need phosphurous binders.

here are two excellent websites to help you out with your CRF kitty.

Default my experience

My cat was diagnosed about a year ago. Using a special diet (as often as I could get her to eat) along with fluids twice a week, we kept her numbers stable for one year.

Then she fell ill, which I thought was related to some teeth problems she was displaying. So the vet gave her anasthesia to do a dental and see what was wrong. After the anasthesia... she tanked! Her kidney values were double worse than they were just 3 weeks prior.

So we took her to an internal medicine specialist. In the process, I did a significant amount of research online. Epakitin and Aluminum Hydroxide are used for the same purpose. But, if your cat has calcium problems or you expect calcium problems, you should use Aluminum Hydroxide. This is what I learned in my online research. After gathering all of my materials and hoping to discuss this with the specialist, she automatically prescribed me aluminum hydroxide. Her numbers instantly dropped 1 week later and she in fact improved!!!

Here are the two websites I found most informative...
search on "Scooter's Supplies for CRF About Phosphorous Binders
With this site, be sure to read about "Dr. Nagode's Protocol / Dosage". It is exactly what my Dr. seemed to be following without mentioning that she was following it. (sorry, I can not post websites so you will have to look it up! this site won't let me until I post 25 posts).

Here is the other site...
Under the felinecrf.com site Click on "Medications" on the left bar... it outlines all the medications and protocols, side effects, etc.!!!

Good luck!m hydroxide or Epakitin to bind phosphorus in cats with kidney disease. I have read conflicting articles for both. I want to pick the best product to help my cat. Also Lanthanum carbonate is mentioned, but not much info on it.
