Hello and thank you for posting your medical query on E health forum.

The history provided here does not seem to be complete and clear. But it seems from the available history, that you may have a form of chronic renal disease which could be associated with errors in Vitamin D metabolism and hence causing issues with bone disease (Renal Osteodystrophy). Renal osteodystrophy is a bone disease that occurs when your kidneys fail to maintain the proper levels of calcium and phosphorus in your blood. It's a common problem in people with kidney disease.

If left untreated, the bones gradually become thin and weak, and a person with renal osteodystrophy may begin to feel bone and joint pain with increased risk of bone fractures too.

The treatment in this condition includes vitamin D and calcium supplements. You may consider to consult your treating physician or a Nephrologist if you have additional doubts or questions.

I hope you find this helpful.
