Reducing the amount of phosphorus in the blood in patients with chronic kidney disease who are on dialysis. Renvela is a phosphate binder. It binds with phosphate in the digestive tract, which decreases the amount of phosphate absorbed into the body.
Renvela is used to treat high blood phosphate levels (hypocalcemia) in people who are on dialysis due to kidney disease. Renvela works by retaining phosphate from one's diet so that it can be carried out through your body.
