Calcitriol Helps Treat Bone Disease and Itching for Kidney Failure

Calcitriol Helps Treat Bone Disease and Itching for Kidney FailureCalcitriol is also called Rocaltrol that is one important active metabolic product of vitamin D. This medicine can stimulate the body to absorb calcium from food, so it is able to help treat bone disease and itching for Kidney Failure or dialysis patients.

Bone disease and itching for renal failure patients

Normally, healthy kidneys can maintain phosphorus, calcium, PTH and vitamin D effectively, so as to keep bone and skin health. However, in Kidney Failure, nearly all of kidney functioning tissues are lost, so they fail to keep the balance of these four substances. Then, high phosphorus causes skin itching, and low calcium level and lack of activated form of vitamin D leads to bone disease easily.

Calcitriol and kidneys

In the body, kidneys are responsible for converting inactive vitamin D to calcitriol. However, in kidney failure or dialysis, the formation of endogenous calcitriol reduces obviously or even stops. Lack of this substance is the key factor to determining the onset of renal bone disease, and it can also affect phosphorus level in the blood and stimulate skin itching. Therefore, it is necessary to prescribe some calcitriol for kidney failure patients to maintain their bone and skin health.

Is calcitriol enough to overcome bone disease and itching for kidney failure patients?

This medication indeed can help control these two symptoms to some extent, but it is not enough to make patients get rid of these problems from the root.
