    • Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important source of long-term morbidity and mortality. Ithas been estimated that CKD affects more than 20 million people in the United States.(1)NKF-K/DOQI(Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative) Definition of CKD:CKD is an irreversible, progressive reduction in renal function.The National Kidney Foundations Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (K/DOQI) guidelines define CKD as sustained kidney damage indicated by the presence of structural or functional abnormalities (e.g., microalbuminuria/proteinuria, hematuria, histologic or imaging abnormalities), and/or reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR) to less than 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 for at least 3 months(1)
    • K/DOQI classification of the stages of chronic kidney disease (2002) GFR (mL/min/1.73 m2) Stage Description Plan Action 1 Kidney damage with ≥90 Diagnosis, treatment of normal or elevated underlying condition GFR and comorbidities, cardiovascular disease risk reduction 2 Kidney damage with 60-89 Estimating progression mildly decreased GFR 3 Moderately decreased 30-59 Evaluating and treating GFR complications 4 Severely decreased 15-29 Preparation for renal GFR replacement therapy 5 Kidney failure (ESRD) <15 (or dialysis, Replacement therapy transplantation) (dialysis or transplantation)ESRD, end-stage renal disease; GFR, glomerular filtration rate.Adapted from the National Kidney Foundation: K/DOQI Clinical practice guidelines forchronic kidney disease: Evaluation, classification, and stratification.

    •  As kidney function declines, there is a progressive deterioration in mineral homeostasis, with a disruption of normal serum and tissue concentrations of phosphorus and calcium, and changes in circulating levels of hormones. These include parathyroid hormone (PTH), 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D), and other vitamin D metabolites, fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23), and growth hormone.(1) Chronic kidney disease–mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) is a common complication of chronic kidney disease and is a part of broad spectrum disorders of mineral metabolism that occur in clinical setting(3).It involves biochemical abnormalities (i.e, serum phosphorus, PTH, vitamin D levels, and alkaline phosphatase) related to bone metabolism(7) The disorder of the bone have to be considered not only with regard to the bone itself but also with regard to the consequences of disturbed mineral metabolism of extra skeletal sites, including the vasculature.(3)
    • Table 1 | KDIGO Classification of CKD–MBD and RenalOsteodystrophy _________________________________________________________ Definition of CKD–MBDA systemic disorder of mineral and bone metabolism due to CKD manifested by either one or acombination of the following: Abnormalities of calcium, phosphorus, PTH, or vitamin D metabolism. Abnormalities in bone turnover, mineralization, volume, linear growth, or strength. Vascular or other soft-tissue calcification.Definition of renal osteodystrophy Renal osteodystrophy is an alteration of bone morphology in patients with CKD. It is one measure of the skeletal component of the systemic disorder of CKD–MBD that is quantifiable by histomorphometry of bone biopsy._________________________________________________________________________________CKD, chronic kidney disease; CKD–MBD, chronic kidney disease–mineral and bone disorder; KDIGO, Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes; PTH, parathyroid hormone.Adapted with permission from Moe et al.(1)

    • Pathogenesis of Metabolic Bone Disease in CKDRenal bone disease is a common complication of chronic kidney disease. It results in bothskeletal complications (eg, abnormality of bone turnover, mineralization, linear growth)and extraskeletal complications (eg, vascular or soft tissue calcification).(7)Several types of bone diseases are known to occur in CKD patients:Excessive secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH) due to secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) causes high-turnover bone disease, called osteitis fibrosa. Among low-turnover bone disease (LTBD), osteomalacia which is characterized by calcification defect (defective mineralization) is often complicated with VD deficiency and/or aluminum accumulation.Recently, frequency of adynamic bone disease caused by PTH suppression, another type of LTBD, is increasing probably due to calcium salts as phosphate binder with or without VD treatment.(2)Mixed disease.(7)Beta-2-microglobulin associated bone disease.(7)
    • High-Turnover Metabolic Bone Disease in CKDHigh-turnover bone disease is the result of the development of secondaryhyperparathyroidism. Factors involved in the pathogenesis of secondaryhyperparathyroidism are: Retention of Phosphorus Hypocalcemia Decreased renal synthesis of 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, or calcitriol) Intrinsic alterations within the Parathyroid gland that give rise to increased PTH secretion as well as increased parathyroid growth, skeletal resisitance to the actions of PTH and hypocalcemia.(3)
    • Role of Phosphate RetentionPhosphate retention begins in early chronic kidney disease; when the GFR falls. As functional mass declines, the fractional excretion of phosphate drops, leading to an increase in the serum Phosphate level. This is accompanied by a reciprocal decrease in serum calcium concentration. These events lead to an increase in parathyroid hormone (PTH) release(post-transcriptional effect); this has a phosphaturic effect, resulting in the return of phosphate and calcium to normal levels. As GFR continues to decline, this cycle maintains serum calcium and phosphate concentrations within the normal ranges, at the expense of rising PTH levels. When further renal mass is lost and GFR drops below 30 mL/min/1.73 m2, (chronic kidney disease stage 4-5) despite the compensatory hyperphosphaturia, hyperphosphatemia becomes sustained.(4)
    • Decreases in the level of CalcitriolParallel to this, as nephron mass decreases, the 1α-hydroxylation in the kidney of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25-(OH)vitamin D] declines, leading to lower serum levels of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25-(OH2)vitamin]. Hyperphosphatemia suppresses the renal hydroxylation of inactive 25-hydroxyvitamin D to calcitriol, so serum calcitriol levels are low when the GFR is less than 30 mL/min/1.73 m2(4). This lack of 1,25-(OH2)vitaminD contributes to the development of hypocalcemia, given its role of enhancing calcium absorption in the gut and enhancing PTH-mediated calcium release from bone. The combination of all these factors contributes to the development of secondary hyperparathyroidism and renal osteodystrophy. Calcitriol levels seem to decline slowly and progressively throughout the course of CKD.(7)
    • Role of Intrinsic Alterations in the Parathyroid GlandHypocalcemia is a powerful stimulus for PTH secretion and for parathyroid growth.Decreased levels of Calcitriol also may contribute to the parathyroid abnormalities.(3)Calcitriol is a major regulator of PTH secretion, and vitamin D receptor is expressed in theparathyroid glands. Concomitant decreases in VD receptor and calcium sensing receptor inthe parathyroid glands render them more resistant to the action of VD and calcium, andaccelerate parathyroid cell growth(2) Skeletal Resistance to the Actions of PTHMany factors are involved in skeletal resistance, including phosphorus retention,possibly decreased levels of calcitriol, downregulation of the PTH receptor and thepotential actions of PTH fragments that have shown to blunt the calcemic effect ofPTH (3)

    • Low-Turnover Metabolic Bone Disease (LTBD) in CKD: Low-turnover bone disease(LTBD) is commonly observed in patients with kidney disease, especially in patients who are on dialysis, and is characterized by an extremely slow rate of bone formation.(3) Low turnover bone disease has two subgroups, osteomalacia and adynamic bone disease. Both lesions are characterized by a decrease in bone turnover or remodeling, with a reduced number of osteoclasts and osteoblasts, and decreased osteoblastic activity. In osteomalacia there is an accumulation of unmineralized bone matrix, or increased osteoid volume, which may be caused by vitamin D deficiency or excess aluminum. Adynamic bone disease is characterized by reduced bone volume and mineralization and may be due to excess aluminum or oversuppression of PTH production with calcitriol.(8) Therefore, both forms facilitate the availability of Ca and P, which ends up being deposited in soft tissues such as arteries. (6) Dialysis-related amyloidosis from beta-2-microglobulin accumulation in patients who have required chronic dialysis for at least 8-10 years is another form of bone disease. It manifests with cysts at the ends of long bones(7)

    • Clinical Signs and Symptoms of Metabolic Bone Disease in CKDOften is asymptomatic, and symptoms appear only in the late course of the disease.Many of the symptoms are non-specific and include pain and stiffness in joints, spontaneous tendon rupture, predisposition to fracture, and proximal muscle weakness.(3)A similar set of symptoms may be seen in both the low- and high-turnover type of skeletal abnormality.It is important to emphasize that the absence of clinical signs and symptoms of metabolic bone disease do not underscore the importance of these abnormalities, because many of the processes that contribute to the underlying metabolic bone disease also have consequences at extra-skeletal sites, and the control of these processes is also important to decrease the morbidity and mortality.(3)
    • Diagnosis of CKD-MBD: biochemical abnormalities• Bone Biopsy- Although histologic examination of un-decalcified sections of bone remains the gold standard for the precise diagnosis of renal bone disease, bone biopsy is not widely used in clinical practice because of the invasive nature of the technique.• Measurements of calcium and phosphorus concentrations• Measurements of PTH.• A number of biologic markers of bone formation and bone resorption might be used in conjunction with measurement of the mineral ions and PTH to gauge cell activity. Of these, alkaline phosphatase and bone-specific alkaline phosphatase are most useful in this regard.(3)

    • K/DOQI™ Clinical Practice Guidelines on Bone Metabolism Target Levels *Evidence
    • RECOMMENDATIONSMonitoring serum levels of calcium, phosphorus, PTH, and alkaline phosphatase activity beginning in CKD stage 3 . In children, such monitoring beginning in CKD stage 2.In CKD stage 3: for serum calcium and phosphorus, every 6-12 months; and for PTH, based on baseline level and CKD progression.In CKD stage 4: for serum calcium and phosphorus, every 3-6 months; and for PTH, every 6-12 months.In CKD stages 5, including 5D: for serum calcium and phosphorus, every 1-3 months; and for PTH, every 3-6 months.In CKD stages 4-5D: for alkaline phosphatase activity, every 12 months, or more frequently in the presence of elevated PTH.
    • Treatment Recommendations (Stages 3 & 4)• Decrease total body phosphorus burden by dietary restriction and phosphorus binder therapy- 2.7- 4.6 mg/dL; begin when EITHER elevated serum phosphorus OR elevated serum PTH• Treat elevated PTH with active oral vitamin D sterol to target of 35-70 (CKD 3) or 70-110 (CKD 4) pg/mL by intact assay• Normalize serum calcium
