Patients with kidney failure can experience high levels of potassium, a condition that is not well addressed by traditional dialysis. This condition affects the function of both the skeletal and smooth muscles, and in extreme cases can result in cardiac arrest. However, Dow’s specially tailored AMBERLITE™ Ion Exchange Resins can help lower potassium levels.
Solutions for Hyperkalemia
AMBERLITE™ Ion Exchange Resin
AMBERLITE™ Ion Exchange Resin is orally ingested and as it passes harmlessly through the body it collects potassium while simultaneously releasing harmless calcium or sodium ions. The result is a unique, safe and effective way to help patients facing elevated potassium levels.
