Bone and mineral disorders in chronic kidney disease (CKD-BMD) involve abnormal metabolism of calcium and phosphorus, vitamin D deficiency, increased levels of fibroblast growth factor (FGF-23) and parathyroid hormone (PTH). These changes are associated with several complications in CKD patients, such as skeleton deformities and bone fractures. Recent researches point out the correlation of hyperparathyroidism with inflammation, cardiovascular disease, sleep disorders, increased energy expenditure, and sarcopenia. Experimental studies in murine have demonstrated the role of PTH receptor on the development of sarcopenia related to cancer and chronic kidney disease. We hypothesize that PTH influences energy expenditure, and parathyroidectomy (PTX), a treatment for severe hyperparathyroidism, improves muscle mass and modifies basal energy expenditure in CKD patients.
