Calcitriol is used to treat the following: •Bone disease in people with kidney problems (renal osteodystrophy). •Weakening of the bones in women after the menopause (change of life). This is also known as post- menopausal osteoporosis. Calcitriol works by making your body absorb more calcium from your diet. This helps to form healthy bones and reduce bone damage
