Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) have been reported to have up to 5 times higher risk of fractures than the general population. The causes of this increased risk are diverse. Besides the traditional risk factors for osteoporosis such as aging, patients with ESRD suffer from chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD).
Traditionally patients with ESRD who develop fractures are mainly treated for their CKD-MBD with medications that target low vitamin D, high phosphate and high IPTH. Trials that look at medications for osteoporosis have conventionally excluded patients with CKD. Hence, the use of antiresorptive in the CKD population has been controversial due to lack of data.
