One of the consequences of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a gradual loss of the kidney’s ability to remove hydrogen ions from the blood. This causes a condition known as “metabolic acidosis”, which is commonly treated in non-dialysis patients with sodium bicarbonate tablets or capsules. Nephrotrans® 500mg is a gastro-resistant capsule containing sodium bicarbonate (sodium hydrogen carbonate).
