Researchers at the University of Kentucky's Nephrology, Bone and Mineral Division invite you to participate in a research study about bone loss (osteoporosis) in patients on dialysis. Risk of fracture is not the only concern with bone loss, which is also associated with the increase in heart calcifications responsible for the high death rate of dialysis patients.
- Approximately 30 minute appointment
- Bone density measurement by DXA scan
- Compensation of $75 for volunteering your time, plus travel pay
If you are found to have bone loss on DXA scan, you will be considered for the treatment portion of the research study.
