AURYXIA (ah-RICKS-ee-ah) is a phosphate binder that contains iron, which binds (attaches) the phosphorus from the food you eat and helps remove it, helping to manage your hyperphosphatemia (HI-per-FOZ-fa-TEE-mee-uh).
It’s when your phosphorus levels are too high. When your kidneys are healthy, they remove extra phosphorus from your body. When your kidneys are damaged or failing, phosphorus can build up, causing hyperphosphatemia.
It is important to manage your hyperphosphatemia, even if you don’t feel any symptoms.
