Educate Dialysis Patients on the Pros and Cons of Velphoro

Velphoro (vel-FOR-oh, sucroferric oxyhydroxide) will be a new phosphate binder for chronic kidney disease patients on dialysis.

Velphoro is a calcium-free alternative...similar to Renvela (sevelamer carbonate), Renagel (sevelamer hydrochloride), or Fosrenol (lanthanum carbonate).
