Bone Pain in Dialysis Patients: Cause and Treatment

Bone Pain in Dialysis Patients: Cause and TreatmentDialysis is a life-saving medical procedure that basically performs the same duties as the kidneys, cleaning human body of harmful toxic wastes. Most patients say they feel better after a treatment. However, some problems can occur. In this article, we will talk about bone pain in dialysis patients.


a. Excessive phosphorus level in the blood. Kidneys normally release extra phosphorus into the urine; however, in ESRD, the kidneys are severely damage and Dialysis removes only a small amount of phosphorus from the blood. When there is too much phosphorus in the blood, calcium is pulled out of the bones, resulting in renal bone disease. Patients will experience symptoms like bone pain, joint pain, bone fractures, bone deformation, etc.

b. Dialysis amyloidosis. It can develop 10 years or so after the start of dialysis treatment. The condition is caused by the accumulation of a protein (amyloid), which is not easily remove by the treatment. It is deposited in joints all over the body, resulting in joint and bone pain.


There are several strategies Dialysis patients can take to help relieve bone pain. They include:

• Eat a low phosphorus diet. Recommended foods for dialysis patients include rice milk, cream cheese, white grains, cabbage, beets, carrots, beef, onions, chicken, eggs, fish, lamb, and vegetable oils, etc. For a specific list of foods or meal plan, you can Email us at
