    I have been on heamodialysis for 12 years, I had a parathyroidectomy 5 years ago & was given massive amounts of calcium which has affected my heart & vascular system as has my phosphate levels, so i am looking for a new appraoch to my problems. Where can I get hold of this chewing gum as I struggle with the fact that I should have to ruin every meal with mouthfuls of chalky lanthanum as a phosphate binder but unfortunately I need to find another way to help bring my phosphate back in line as ive just been told my phosphate reading is 3x the accepted highest level! What is ‘ chitosan’ & what is it mixed wit to make chewing gum & what does it taste like? Can I get a sample enough to do a 2 to 3 week trial to see how it affects my blood results, please. Thank you, yours sincerely SL.
