How to Save on Medication for Kidney Disease Treatment

kidney disease treatment

Eliminating waste effectively is always a priority, and that’s true whether you’re looking at waste from a larger city point of view or at the scope of a single individual. Of course, we’re talking about different types of waste between the two. But if a municipality needed kidneys to do what they need to do on that end, then you can be sure they’d do what it takes to keep them in good health. Municipal kidneys aren’t a thing, but your internal kidneys are very real, and your body needs them to eliminate the waste that needs to go. Kidney disease makes a mess of all that, and people suffering from it will need medication for kidney disease treatment.

The cost of kidney disease treatment medications in the USA is high. Paying too much for Rx medication when you’re going to be taking the medications on a long-term basis and don’t want treatment cost burning a huge hole in your finances is a concern for many people. If you’re part of the middle or lower class and have been recently diagnosed and are without extended healthcare coverage – cost of medication is a reality you have to face and consider your best option for.

It’s likely your doctor will give you a prescription for Urocit-K for treating kidney stones or Sensipar for an overactive parathyroid. So, if we’re talking about how to save on medication for kidney disease treatment, these are exactly the types of medications you can order online from Canada. If you speak to your pharmacist and they advise you there’s no way you can get discounts on your medication or find a co-pay arrangement, then ordering from a Canadian pharmacy is likely your best option in terms of value and cost.


A lot of folks living south of the 49th are going to agree with us when we say that the price of medication there is bananas! It is pretty crazy how some Rx medications are so expensive, and it’s been nearly a year since the White House announced its Executive Order designed to give Americans access to more affordable medications. It’s likely the new Biden administration will carry on with that effort and hopefully medication become less expensive eventually.

If your kidney disease medication is one you can get for less when ordering medication from a Canada pharmacy that fills US prescriptions, then it’s certainly worth it.

Now, the reason we mentioned bananas is that they’re a fairly integral ingredient in most household’s smoothies. If you’re going through chronic kidney disease treatment, you may need to find a way to go banana-free with your smoothies. At least for a while since bananas aren’t good for kidney disease patients. More specifically it’s the potassium in the bananas that’s not good for individuals who are suffering. This is one of a few dietary tips you should take into consideration if you really want to address and improve kidney health.

Dispensing For Less

But back to our topic here – paying less for kidney disease treatment medications – and one of the reasons you can get medication from Canada and pay less for them is because the medication is made available from the manufacturer to wholesalers at a much lower price. That’s regulated by the government. In the USA monopoly pricing on medication makes it a whole different story. Generic equivalents of branded medication are a good way to save some money, but it’s at least 5 years before generics become available and sometimes it’s way longer than that.

In Canada, manufacturers of medications aren’t free to run with pricing the way they are in the USA, and there’s fewer ‘middlemen’ who add to the end user cost along the way. Often Canadian online pharmacies have product sourcing advantages too, and it’s important to remember that pharmacies here are regulated for safe and lawful operation the same way they are in the USA. Products sometimes have different packaging, but the medications are the same quality, purity, and equally safe.

Another good option for US residents to save money on kidney disease treatment medication is to purchase larger quantities of it when you’re able to have a higher count prescription for it. That may or may not be possible, but online pharmacies in Canada that serve USA will always require a genuine doctor’s prescription to be submitted with all orders. If you’re able to get a higher count written for yours then that’s something that will help make medication more affordable for you.
