Calcium and phosphorus are two important minerals to bone. Kidneys are responsible to regulate their balance. When the new bone builds, some phosphorus is leaked into blood. Kidneys can remove phosphorus in normal state. When kidneys fail, they cannot remove phosphorus, resulting in its accumulation. Extra phosphorus will combine with calcium to form sharp crystal that will damage blood vessels. Long-term of extra phosphorus also can damage bone.
Kidneys can also produce calcitriol, a kind of hormone. With the help of this hormone, guts can absorb calcium coming from diet or other sources. When kidneys fail, calcitriol are not produced enough and the body will pull calcium out from bone to replace the absence of calcium. Without enough calcium for long time, bone is easy to become weak.
