What is Sensipar used for? What are the Indications of Sensipar?


Sensipar is used in the treatment of diseases related to problems caused by organs expressed as parathyroid glands. Parathyroids are 4 small glands found next to the thyroid gland in the thyroid gland producing parathyroid hormone (PTH). Some kidney diseases can pave the way for secondary hyperparathyroidism. PTH useally delivers enough calcium and phosphorus in the blood for the elements such as bone, heart, muscle, nerves and support blood vessels to work efficiently. In case the kidneys work well, PTH maintains normal levels of calcium and phosphorus levels by allowing calcium and phosphorus to enter and leave the bones in the appropriate amount. If the kidneys do not work well, calcium-phosphorus balance of the body is impaired. Therefore, the parathyroid glands release more PTH than normal conditions. Due to this high PTH, bone diseases and hearth problems can be observed. It is very harmful also for blood vessels. Sensipar supports the body with regard to control parathyroid hormone, calcium and phosphate levels. Sensipar is advised in the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism in dialysis kidney patients.
