Both chronic kidney disease and osteoporosis are frequent conditions in the general population. Most drugs for treating osteoporosis seem safe in terms of affecting renal function for patients with mildly to moderate decreased renal function. There are very few data on the efficacy (reduction in fracture risk) or safety in patients with severely decreased renal function (glomerular filtration rate < 30 ml/min) or on dialysis.
