Bone disorders are common in renal disease and stem largely from deregulation of serum levels of calcium and phosphorus. Accurate methods of assessment are required to monitor bone mineral content and density changes in patients with renal disease, but current methods are complicated. Interpretation of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measurements in children is difficult, because the areal component that is measured does not adequately reflect bone that is constantly growing. In adults… CONTINUE READING
