Lanthanum carbonate is used as a starting material in lanthanum chemistry, particularly in forming mixed oxides, for example
Lanthanum carbonate is used in medicine as a phosphate binder. As a medication it is sold under the trade name Fosrenol by the pharmaceutical company Shire Pharmaceuticals. Due to its large size (1000 mg tablet is 2.2 cm in diameter), it may be possible to choke on the tablet if it is not chewed. It is prescribed for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia, primarily in patients with chronic kidney disease. It is taken with meals and binds to dietary phosphate, preventing phosphate from being absorbed by the intestine. For cats suffering from hyperphosphatemia it is available under the trade name Renalzin by Bayer Animal Health.

Wrong mineralogical dataEdit
" It is an ore of lanthanum metal, (Bastnäsite) along with monazite." Not true! Bastnäsite (correct name: bastnäsite-(La)) is La(CO3)F, that is, lanthanum carbonate fluoride. The mineral with the formula La2(CO3)3*8H2O is LANTHANITE-(La). Anhydrous La carbonate is unknown in the nature.Eudialytos (talk) 19:26, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
