Altysev DT 400


Sevelamer carbonate is a medication used for the management of hyperphosphatemia in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) who are undergoing dialysis. Hyperphosphatemia is characterized by elevated levels of phosphate in the blood, which can lead to complications such as bone and mineral disorders.
Sevelamer carbonate is a non-absorbable, polymeric phosphate binder. It contains the active ingredient sevelamer carbonate, which binds to dietary phosphate in the gastrointestinal tract.
Avoidance of Calcium Load:
Unlike some other phosphate binders, sevelamer carbonate does not contain calcium. This is advantageous as it helps avoid contributing to excess calcium load, which can be a concern in patients with CKD.

Category: CKD MBD


AltySev DT 400: Each dispersible tablet of contains Sevelamer Carbonate 400 mg

Mechanism of action:

Altysev DT contains Sevelamer Carbonate, a non-absorbed phosphate binding cross-linked polymer, free of metal and calcium. Sevelamer carbonate works by binding to phosphate in the digestive tract, forming an insoluble complex. This prevents the absorption of phosphate into the bloodstream, reducing overall phosphate levels.


Phosphate Binder


The primary indication for sevelamer carbonate is the control of serum phosphorus levels in patients with CKD who are on hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.


The dosage of sevelamer carbonate is individualized based on the patient's serum phosphorus levels. The appropriate dose is determined a healthcare professional.
Treatment of hyperphosphatemia includes reduction in dietary intake of phosphate, inhibition of intestinal phosphate absorption with phosphate binders, and removal of phosphate with dialysis. Sevelamer carbonate taken with meals has been shown to control serum phosphorus concentrations in patients with CKD who are on dialysis

General Dosage

Sevelamer Carbonate tablet should be given three times a day with meals.
Patients Not Taking a Phosphate Binder: The recommended starting dose of Sevelamer Carbonate is 0.8 to 1.6 g with meals based on serum phosphorus level.


Altysev DT 400: One carton contains 10 strips of 10 tablets each.

Patients need to adhere to their healthcare provider's instructions regarding the use of sevelamer carbonate, including dosage, administration with meals, and dietary considerations. Top of Form
