Additional Study Information: Precision Medicine Approaches to Renal Osteodystrophy is a study designed to discover new markers of how the kidney affects your bone health. This study will evaluate how your bone is reacting to your kidney problem both before and after you start your bone treatment for hyperparathyroidism or osteoporosis. We are looking for people who are interested in learning about their bone health. There will be a total of 4 visits over six months for this research study. You will have some questionnaires, research blood draws, bone imaging scans (high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography HR-pQCT) and a Bone Biopsy. You will receive compensation up to $1000 for completing all visits. In the future, the results can contribute to developing strategies to improve bone health.
