    FAQs

    Q. What is Ketosteril?

    Ketosteril is a form of essential amino acid. When given as a therapy, it exerts a metabolic benefit to the body. Ketosteril is most commonly used as nutrition therapy or dietary supplements in the patients of chronic kidney failure. This medicine prevents the unnecessary increase in urea levels in the blood due to the intake of non-essential amino acids in patients of kidney failure.

    Q. In what disease conditions can Ketosteril be used?

    Most commonly, Ketosteril is used as a nutritional supplement in long-term kidney disease. Ketosteril is also given during heart surgery to reduce the chances of complications. It is also reported to be rarely used along with physiotherapy in the treatment of pain in tendons. It may also be used in treating intestinal and stomach disorders, lung diseases, and as an add-on treatment in bacterial infections, but very rarely.

    Q. Is Ketosteril same as Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate?

    Ketosteril is a combination of various essential amino acids. It is mostly used in the prevention and treatment of damages due to faulty or deficient protein metabolism in chronic kidney disease. On the other hand, Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate is a combination of the essential amino acid arginine and alpha-ketoglutaric acid. Although both Ketosteril and Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate are different, their uses are almost similar.

    Q. How is Ketosteril given?

    The usual advice for an adult is to take the tablets during meals as it helps in proper absorption or usage of the amino acids. The tablets must not be chewed. Ketosteril should be given along with dietary protein restriction in cases of kidney failure. The duration of treatment depends on the severity of the kidney problem. Follow your doctor’s advice and if you notice any uneasiness/discomfort or reaction, immediately contact your doctor.
