Causes of pain in Renal Failure

Pain is also one of the common problem in Renal Failure patients. They usually experience back pain, headache and joint pain. The most possible cause is bone disease in Renal Failure, which is also called “renal osteopathy”. In that case, patients always feel joint pain, sometimes occurring on hands.

There are two common causes of bone pain in Renal Failure:

-High PTH (Parathyroid Hormone) level. Too much PTH in the blood will remove too much calcium from the bones; over time, the constant removal of calcium weakens the bones.

-High phosphorous level: Large amount of phosphorous level builds up in the body due to damaged kidney filtering function. It results in lower levels of calcium in the blood and resulting in higher PTH levels and the loss of calcium from the bones.
