Phosphate binders

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Phosphate binders are used to decrease the absorption of phosphate from food in the digestive tract.

They are used when there is an abnormally high blood phosphate level (hyperphosphatemia) which can be caused by impaired renal phosphate excretion or increased extracellular fluid phosphate loads.

Phosphate binders react with phosphate to form an insoluble compound making it unable to be absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and therefore, when taken regularly with meals, lowers the phosphate concentration in the serum.
