Homeopathy Medicine for Renal Osteodystrophy

Renal osteodystrophy is a bone disease that develops when your kidneys fail to maintain the proper levels of calcium and phosphorus in your blood. It’s a common issue in people with kidney disease and affects the majority of dialysis patients. The term “renal” in medicine describes things related to the kidneys.

Renal osteodystrophy, which slows bone growth and results in deformities, is most dangerous in growing children because their bones are still developing; one such deformity is called “renal rickets” and occurs when the legs bend inward toward each other or outward away from each other. Another significant effect is short stature.

The human skeleton protects the brain and other organs, supports body weight, and stores two important minerals—calcium and phosphorus—which are crucial for bone health. Healthy bones are also necessary for maintaining body structure and mobility.

Renal osteodystrophy is a condition where there is an imbalance of calcium, parathyroid hormone (PTH), phosphorus, and activated vitamin D. This imbalance of calcium, PTH, phosphorus, and activated vitamin D leads to an imbalance of bone cells called osteoclasts and osteoblasts, which is frequently present in patients with bone disease associated with kidney failure.

Renal osteodystrophy can harden the body’s soft tissues over time, including the heart, and can weaken bones over time. It can also increase the mortality rate in those with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

Calcium, PTH and bones

Milk, yogurt, cheese, and canned fish with bones are rich in calcium but also contain too much phosphorus for a kidney diet; for people with chronic kidney disease (CKD), calcium supplements are sometimes prescribed in place of these high-phosphorus foods to provide extra calcium. If calcium levels in blood become too low as a result of kidney failure, your parathyroid glands (four small glands in your body) will release a hormone that will cause your bones to deteriorate.

Phosphorus and bones

Phosphorus, which is found in milk and milk products, whole grains, dried beans and peas, nuts and seeds, organ meats, meat and fish, cola drinks, chocolate, and some types of baking powder, is the second most prevalent mineral in the body after calcium, and about 85% of it is stored in your bones and teeth.

Your body attempts to balance all the body’s minerals when your blood phosphorus level is high by taking calcium from your bones, but as calcium is taken from your bones, your bones start to break down and lose their capacity to support structural integrity.

Vitamin D and bones

When kidneys fail, they stop converting inactive vitamin D to calcitriol, which helps the body absorb calcium and maintain normal PTH levels while carefully balancing calcium in your system.


Because symptoms do not appear until a patient has been receiving dialysis for a few years, renal osteodystrophy is frequently referred to as the “silent crippler.”

  • Bone pain
  • Joint pain
  • Bone deformation
  • Bone fractures
  • Poor mobility

High PTH and/or phosphorus levels, red eyes, itching, and sores caused by calcium-phosphorus deposits are some early signs of renal osteodystrophy.

Renal osteodystrophy can have a particularly negative impact on children with kidney disease because their bones are still developing.

Renal osteodystrophy testing

In order to diagnose renal osteodystrophy, your doctor will draw a blood sample to check your levels of calcium, phosphorus, and PTH. If you are receiving dialysis, calcium and phosphorus tests are performed every month (or occasionally more frequently), and PTH levels are typically checked every three months (though occasionally more frequently) for patients with severe bone disease or those just beginning vitamin D therapy.


The homeopathic medicines are chosen after a thorough individualizing examination and case-analysis, which takes into account the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution, family history, present symptoms, underlying pathology, potential causative factors, etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is a type of tendency that makes a person more susceptible to certain diseases.
