Why Do Kidney Failure Patients on Dialysis Have Bone Pain

Why Do Kidney Failure Patients on Dialysis Have Bone PainOnce someone asked me online:My husband is on dialysis because of kidney failure and he is experiencing aching hip bone and leg bones hurt also.Why is that? Well, why do Kidney Failure patients on dialysis have bone pain? You can find answer in this article.

Causes of bone pain in Kidney Failure

In people with bone disease related to kidney failure, bone cells called osteoclasts and osteoblasts are often not in balance. This condition is called renal osteodystrophy. The way these bone cells get out of balance is when calcium, parathyroid hormone (PTH), phosphorus and activated vitamin D are out of balance.

Kidney Failure means the kidneys are extremely severely damaged. Most kidney function has lost. As a result, excess phosphorous cannot be removed by kidneys. High phosphorous levels will inhibit the absorption of calcium for bone activity.

That’s why Kidney Failure patients have bone pain or weak bones.

In addition, during dialysis, the kidneys are abandoned. Therefore, remaining kidney function keeps losing, resulting in more serious problems. In the end, Kidney Failure patients have no choice but to receive kidney transplant.

Management for bone pain during dialysis

The goal of treating bone disease in Kidney Failure is to restore balance between calcium, PTH, phosphorus and vitamin D in the body. Renal osteodystrophy can be managed with phosphorus binders, activated vitamin D and a low-phosphorus diet.

In addition to a low-phosphorus diet and taking prescribed medicines, exercise can also help increase your bone strength. Check with your doctor before beginning an exercise program.

Next, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese medicines to reduce dialysis and improve kidney function.
