Abstract

The high pill burden of many phosphate binders (PBs) may contribute to increased prevalence of hyperphosphatemia and poor nutritional status observed among patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis therapy. We examined the real-world effectiveness of sucroferric oxyhydroxide (SO), a PB with low pill burden, in managing serum phosphorus in patients with prevalent hemodialysis over a 1-year period.
