Ketosteril is part of the conservative treatment of patients with Chronic Kidney Disease.

- Reduction of uraemic symptoms, which are largely due to an accumulation of degradation products of the protein metabolism
- Preservation of the residual renal function and therefore slowing down the rate of progression of the chronic kidney disease and delaying the onset of dialysis
- Preservation of the nutritional status, despite the marked reduction of the daily protein intake
- Improvement of metabolic complications due to renal insufficiency (e.g. proteinuria, disturbances in calcium-phosphate, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism)
Take 4-8 tablets three times a day during meals.
