Risk factors discussion:
Older patients and women who have gone through menopause are
at greater risk for this disease because they're already vulnerable
to osteoporosis, even without kidney disease. If left untreated, the
bones gradually become thin and weak, and a person with renal
osteodystrophy may begin to feel bone and joint pain. There's also
an increased risk of bone fractures.

About risk factors:
Risk factors for Renal osteodystrophy are factors that do not seem
to be a direct cause of the disease,
but seem to be associated in some way.
Having a risk factor for Renal osteodystrophy
makes the chances
of getting a condition higher but does
not always lead to Renal osteodystrophy.
Also, the absence of any risk factors
or having a protective factor does not necessarily
guard you against getting Renal osteodystrophy.
