Vitamin D deficiency

Dialysis is a kidney replacement treatment which only takes over part of kidney function to remove waste and excess from the blood, while the other functions can not be repaired. Healthy kidneys turn vitamin D into an active hormone, which helps increase calcium absorption. But the damaged one loses this ability. As a result, your blood calcium level reduces.

High phosphorus level

Dialysis can only take away part of waste from the blood, which some others remain in the blood. And then high phosphorus level occurs. High phosphorus level can drain calcium from the bone. When calcium comes into the blood, it may deposit in the blood vessels, resulting in angiosteosis. It can increase your risk of cardiovascular disease.
