A 70 yr old lady lost the efficiency of both kidneys and was advised dialysis. But again doctors suggested to take KETOSTERIL for a month and can be observed for improvement of kidney function.Will the above named drug avoid dialysis ?

Ketosteril contains Ketoanalogues and essential amino acids.

It is commonly used in predialysis patients to try and improve renal function and avoid the need for dialysis.

She should also be on a low-protein diet, while using this medication.

Are there any questions or comments?

I have a horse shoe kidney,the right kidney is dead for all purposes.At the age of 75 my serum creatin level started gradually rising.Last year May 2011, I was prescribed Ketosteril: 2 tablets three times a day.Within 6 months my creatin level came to 1.3.Later I reduced the dosage to 2 tabs twice a day and am maintaining a healthy level of creatin.My potassium,calcium levels are in permissible range.But my protein in take has been maintained at a low level;2 eggs a week, fish or chicken small serving twice a week.Vegetarian foods rich in protein like lentils,cheese etc. do not cause problem much trouble.

Depend how far the serum creatin level has risen.Very recently an elderly lady who had undergone dialysis was having creatin level at 3.5 again,Her Nephrologist put her on Ketosteril 2 tabs thrice a day,in just 15 days her creatin level fell down to 2.5.But she is a strict Vegan.Protein in take has got to be controlled though not curtailed totally.

Last year, (Oct. 2012) my brother(diabetic II) was diagnosed with CKD (his legs were swollen) and was immediately under dialysis. Since then he undergoes dialysis twice a week. His weight is 61 - 65 kg. Can Ketosteril medication help to reduce his dialysis?
My father (86 years old) is likewise undergoing dialysis just a month after my brother.
He is taking ketosteril 600mg, 4 times a day and twice a week dialysis. My father can still urinate. Can ketosteril 600mg be used instead of dialysis for my father?

Greetings of the day

Dear Sir,

With due respect my Father is a CKD patient last 8 months ago, I am here with a scanned copy of his last Doctor's Prescription along with a current Blood Test Report.

As advised by his doctor the following medications are taken by him:

1. Tab Nicardia –R 10mg 1 tab thrice in a day
2. Inj. H. Actrapid 12 units morning and afternoon
3. Inj. Insugen 30/70 12 units at night
4. Tab Ketosteril 1 tab trice daily
5. Inj. EPO- 10K one Inj. every after 15 days

Kindly note that on 07.02.2015 we have done regular checkup with Dr. Tanmoy Das at International Hospital,Guwahati, Assam ( India ) He advised us to continue the above mentioned medicine and also add one another medicine i.e Fosbait 500 1 Tab twice daily.

Yesterday night after taking Fosbait- 500 he is feeling very uneasy and also Vomiting.

Moreover, kindly note that he is taking Tab Lasix when his leg swells. i.e every after 2 days he is taking one Lasix Tab to normalize the swelling in his leg. Sir kindly help what should I do now?

In the above circumstances, we would request you kindly advise / help us considering the current Blood Report which is attached here with for which I shall be ever so grateful to you.

Sir, Kindly suggest Fosbait 500 1 Tab twice daily to be continue or not ? because after taking Fosbait- 500 he is feeling very uneasy and also Vomiting. As per Doc Tanmoy Das this medicine given for Creatinine level 4.9 is high. So Sir Kindly advise or suggest a medicine alternative for that.

Also Kindly suggest or give medicine name for how to prevent leg swelling & Creatinine level.

I am sitting here with a detailed case history of my Father.

With thanks and Regards,

Kunal P.

I'm afraid not. If there were such a wonder drug that could avoid dialysis, I assure you every person in the world with CKD would be taking it and nobody would be on dialysis.
It is true that certain supplements and medications, along with a low protein healthy diet can slow down the process but it is impossible to stop or freeze the decline.
