It prevents the body from absorbing phosphate, allowing it to be removed from the body. We have marked a distinct position in the domain by offering our clients Lanthanum Carbonate. This drug is used to lower phosphate levels in patients with end stage kidney disease. It is a phosphate binder that reduces absorption of phosphate by forming insoluble lanthanum phosphate complexes that pass through the gastrointestinal tract unabsorbed. It is taken with meals and binds to dietary phosphate, preventing phosphate from being absorbed by the intestine. Lanthanum Carbonate should not be used if you have a bowel obstruction or severe constipation.
