Management of Renal Osteopathy in Renal Failure Patients
For the patients on dialysis, when they do not present symptoms of renal osteopathy, they should take some vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 can promote the absorption of phosphorus by intestinal tract thus lowering its level in blood.
The patients can take some oral calcium. It can improve the transportation of calcium in blood.
If the product of serum blood value and phosphorus value is above 70 and the hyperphosphatemia and parathyroid hormone level increases, the patients can consider parathyroid surgery.
Control the intake of foods high in phosphorus and avoid the foods rich in phosphorus such as animal organs, banana, oranges etc.
