Kidney Failure and Bone Diseases

2013-07-09 13:58

bone disease, kidney failureSome Kidney Failure patients are likely to experience bone disease. As a Kidney Failure patient, if you want to prevent bone disease, the following information is expected to be helpful.

Kidney Failure can throw off the balance of calcium and phosphorus in the blood, causing the parathyroid glands to produce too much parathyroid hormone. The high level of parathyroid hormone draws the calcium from the bones into the blood, leaving the bones without enough calcium.

Bone problems affects 90% of Kidney Failure patients on dialysis, both children and adults, causing bones to become thin, weak, or malformed. Older Kidney Failure patients and women who have gone through menopause are at higher risk for bone diseases. Bone diseases can be seen in growing children with Kidney Failure even before they start dialysis.

Controlling parathyroid hormone levels prevents damage to bones. Generally speaking, overactive parathyroid glands are controllable with an adjustment in dialysis patients, medications or changes in diet. In some case, removal of most of the parathyroid glands may be helpful. As long as one parathyroid gland remains, it can regulate the calcium and phosphorus balance in the blood. What is more, reducing dietary intake of phosphorus can also help prevent bone diseases.

Bone diseases can be prevented or relieved to a certain degree, if kidneys can work normally again to balance the minerals in the blood. No matter what kind of complication Kidney Failure patients are suffering, in addition to take proper measures to deal with corresponding complication, do not forget to save kidneys themselves by repairing kidney damage and recovering kidney function. After all, no one wants to experience dialysis or kidney transplant. And nowadays, more and more Kidney Failure patients decide to stop dialysis patients when they find it can no longer improve the quality of their life. If you are looking for natural ways to help recover kidney function, or you still have any follow-up questions about bone disease, feel free to leave us a message below, we are glad to help.
