Effects of oral calcium carbonate on control of serum phosphorus and changes in plasma aluminum levels after discontinuation of aluminum-containing gels in children receiving dialysis.

Abstract

Orally administered calcium carbonate was evaluated as a phosphate binding agent in 15 children, ages 0.6 to 17.2 years, receiving maintenance dialysis. Changes in plasma aluminum concentration were assessed after discontinuation of treatment with aluminum-containing gels. The mean daily dose of calcium carbonate was 5.1 +/- 2.5 gm (384 +/- 315 mg/kg/day… (More)
