Cation exchange resins

What are Cation exchange resins

Cation exchange resins are used in medicine to remove an excess of a particular positively charged ion that has accumulated in the body. When the resin is administered to the patient the positively charged ions binds to the resin in an exchange for another positive ion. Once bound to the resin it passes through the system to be removed, resulting in a reduction in the level of the excess ion.
