Switching to Ketorena

Switching to Ketorena

Many people taking other keto-analogues choose to switch to Ketorena because:

  • Ketorena is the only keto-analogue made in the USA in an FDA inspected facility under cGMP guidelines, requiring quality and purity testing for every batch.
  • There is no risk of obtaining an adulterated, contaminated or fake product coming from a foreign, online pharmacy with unknown quality standards.
  • Ketorena is a powdered drink mix, designed to be taken with a few ounces of water, 2-3 times per day. No pills to swallow like other tableted keto-analogues.
  • Ketorena was designed by a board certified Nephrologist for people with CKD.
  • Ketorena contains no magnesium which can accumulate in people with CKD.

Dosing Ketorena


When converting to Ketorena, you will need to know your total daily dose of the tableted form you are currently taking.

Ketorena has 2.1 g or 2100 mg of keto & amino acids per scoop.

Many, but not all tableted keto-analogues have 600 mg of keto & amino acids per tablet.

Typical dose conversion:

A tableted dose example: 600 mg tablets x 10 per day = 6000 mg or 6 g total daily dose.

The equivalent Ketorena dose: 1 scoop of Ketorena: 2100 mg or 2.1 g x 3 = 6300 mg or 6.3 g total daily dose or 1 scoop 3 times per day.

Ketorena can be taken 2-3 times per day depending on the converted dose.
