Consider Suggesting Auryxia to Bind Phosphate AND Increase Iron

Auryxia (aw-RIK-see-uh, ferric citrate) is the first phosphate binder that also increases iron levels in chronic kidney disease patients.

It's an iron-based phosphate binder like Velphoro...but the iron in Auryxia is absorbed so it can help improve anemia.

Auryxia reduces IV iron needs by about 50%...and erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (Epogen, etc) by about 25%...over one year.
