Why are kidneys important for bone health?

Healthy kidneys do many important jobs. They remove wastes and extra fluid from your body, help make red blood cells, and help keep bones strong. They also help to keep the right amount of minerals in your blood. Minerals are nutrients that your body needs to stay healthy.

When you have kidney disease or kidney failure, your kidneys cannot do these important jobs well. As a result, you may develop mineral and bone disorder.
