List of Risk Factors for Renal osteodystrophy

The list of risk factors mentioned for Renal osteodystrophy in various sources includes:

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. (Source: excerpt from Renal Osteodystrophy: NIDDK)

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. For general information and a list of risk factors, see the risk center.
