Regardless of which drug or any drug is taken, people on dialysis have a higher incidence of bone pain as well as joint pain. This may affect their walking ability and overall life quality largely, so finding out how to remit bone pain for people on dialysis become the problem urgently needed to slove.
Most of us know one cause is low calcium level. Generally, we are aware that healthy kidneys clean wastes from the blood and produce urine, but in fact, they are also responsible for keeping minerals in the body in balance such as calcium that can help keep bones healthy. Dialysis is used commonly for people with advanced kidney disease as kidney replacement. However, it can only help remove wastes from the blood. Therefore, calcium imbalance, low calcium level, occurs and causes bone pain easily. In addition, phosphorus, PTH and vitamin D are linked with calcium.
Relevant management: Consume more foods rich in calcium. Milk, whole grains, dried beans, peas, buts, fish, etc, all contains rich calcium, but some of them are also high in phosphorus. Choosing the foods high in calcium but low in phosphorus is good for people on dialysis have bone pain. In addition, taking some activated form of vitamin D can also help the body absorb calcium.
Few people know the other cause is dialysis amyloidosis. This condition can develop gradually in many years or after the beginning of dialysis. Amyloidosis is due to the build up of a protein called amyloid that is difficultly removed by dialysis. Then, it will deposit in the joints and cause bone and joint pain.
Relevant managements: At present, no effective medicines but kidney function improvement can be helpful. Only when the kidney function is improved and kidneys can do their own job, they can keep the amyloidosis balance again. At this situation, some treatments such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy and blood purification should be used according to patients’ specific condition.
