Stage 5 Kidney Failure: How to Treat Joint PainStage 5 Kidney Failure is when the kidneys are no longer able to work at a level needed for day-to-day life. In this advanced stage, many patients experience symptom of joint pain. There are some available remedies to relieve this problem.

In Stage 5 Kidney Failure, joint pain is mostly caused due to renal osteodystrophy, a common complication of renal failure. Renal osteodystrophy occurs in cases as below:

Imbalance of phosphorus and calcium level in the body. With failed kidneys, the phosphorus can not be excreted out of the body and will build up in the blood. This cause the body to pull calcium from the body, making them weak.

Healthy kidneys help the body use vitamin D. When the kidneys are not working, the body may not be able to use vitamin D like it should, which can also cause bones to get weak.

Parathyroid hormone (PTH) regulates calcium levels in the blood. In ESRD, low blood calcium levels may occur. PTH will begin removing calcium from bones to get calcium blood levels back to normal. Over time, as calcium is stripped from the bodys, this can result in weak bones.
