Firstly, we will see why joint pain happens in kidney failure. Vitamin D produced by kidneys helps the body absorb calcium and keeps bones strong. Once kidney function is impaired, inadequate vitamin D will affect calcium absorption, thus making bones become brittle. Also the impaired kidney function can cause electrolyte imbalance, resulting in the accumulation of phosphorus and loss of calcium.

The damaged kidneys are unable to remove the excessive uric acid out of body, the accumulation of uric acid in the blood will result in urate crystal and then rheumatism and then joint pain. What is more, dialysis patients may also suffer from joint pain due to the building up of protein called amyloid which may deposit in joints all over the body. This condition is more likely to happen to those kidney failure patients who experience dialysis for more than 5 years.

Well, what are the treatments for joint pain in kidney failure? Firstly, patients should reduce intake of foods which produce much uric acid, like beef, mutton and turkey, also lessen the intake of foods including high phosphorus level. Is that enough?
