I would make sure your nephrologist approves ANYTHING you add to your diet while on dialysis. Some things are not dialyzed out and can build up to dangerous levels in the body. I am not sure what ostinol is or how it is metabolized, but while most people monitor vitamin D levels with the liver form 25OH-D, that is the form that is converted by normally functioning kidneys into 1-25'-OH-D by the kidneys. The lack of this can cause the parathyroid glands to cause a form of secondary hyperparathyroidism. There are drugs that trick the parathyroid glands in people with renal failure that can help control your secondary osteoporosis. Until you can correct your need for dialysis, most osteoporosis drugs or other alternatives will likely not work and you would we wasting effort on an unproductive cause.
Once you no longer need dialysis, your bone status will improve dramatically. I wish you well.
