Rocaltrol

Rocaltrol compensates the deficiency of calcium in such patients.
Rocaltrol is a synthetic form of Vitamin D that helps in the absorption of calcium from stomach to meet up the deficiency.
Rocaltrol is prescribed as a nutritional supplement, vitamin drug.
Rocaltrol is prescribed at time to pregnant women who are low on calcium and Vitamin D.
Rocaltrol is prescribed for the treatment of chronic renal dialysis and hypoparathyroidism.
Rocaltrol is prescribed for the treatment of osteomalacia caused due to deficiency of Vitamin D.
This is applicable for patients with kidney failure but still not on dialysis.

Rocaltrol is a synthetic form of vitamin D prescribed to treat people on dialysis who have hypocalcemia (abnormally low blood calcium levels) and resulting bone damage. Rocaltrol is also prescribed to treat low blood calcium levels in people who have hypoparathyroidism (decreased functioning of the parathyroid glands). When functioning correctly, these glands help control the level of calcium in the blood.

Rocaltrol is prescribed for hyperparathyroidism ( increased functioning of the parathyroid glands) and resulting bone disorders in people with kidney disease who are not yet on dialysis.
