What Can Cause Patients with Kidney Disease to Have Knee Pain

2014-01-15 01:05

What Can Cause Patients with Kidney Disease to Have Knee PainWhat can cause patients with kidney disease to have knee pain? There are many factors that can contribute to it. In the following, you may find the answer.

Uric acid

The knee pain may be caused by the uric acid. Under normal circumstances, the generation and excretion of uric acid is stable and it is mainly filtered out by the kidneys and passes out of the body in urine. Once the kidney function impairs, uric acid will build up in the blood. High levels of uric acid in the blood can cause solid crystals to form within joints. If it is formed within the knee, knee pain occurs.

Too much phosphorus

Kidney has the function of regulating electrolytes in the blood. When there is too much phosphorus in the blood, the calcium will lose in bones. Due to calcium deficiency, you may feel knee pain.

Vitamin D deficiency

Kidneys can activate vitamin D. It can help the body absorb calcium and keep bones strong. Once your kidneys go wrong, there is not enough vitamin D and calcium. As a result, your bones become brittle, leading to knee pain.


Amyloid is a kind of protein in the body, which is common to see among people who on hemodialysis for over five years. It can not be cleansed by dialysis, so it will build up in the body and deposit in joints all over the body. If it lodges in the knee, it may contribute to the knee pain.

Side effects of medicine

Side effects of medicine may also cause joint pain. For example, corticosteroids. It is not uncommon for kidney disease patients to inhibit inflammatory response in the kidney and reduce proteinuria. But long term use may lead to knee pain.
