Causes Of Osteoporosis / Bone Mineral Disorders
Bone Mineral disorders are related to the functionality of the kidneys. When a person is suffering from kidney disease or failure, they eventually develop the bone mineral disorder. It is because there is an imbalance of calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood.
When kidneys are not functioning up to the threshold, they cannot remove extra phosphorus from the blood via urine. Thus, through food intake, the phosphorus levels rise to dangerous levels.
The kidneys also convert Vitamin D from the environment and from the food into an active form for the body to use. Due to kidney failure, it is impossible. When phosphorus levels rise, Vitamin D levels fall, causing the body to release extra parathyroid hormone.
Thus, the calcium from bones moves into the blood. Eventually, the calcium levels fall too low, causing a bone disorder.
