TIO is a rare disease caused by slow-growing tumors that occur throughout the body
The tumors responsible for tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) can be removed with surgery, which can lead to the levels of phosphorus in the body returning to normal. But the tumors are sometimes too small to find or are in a location where they can't be removed.
The symptoms of TIO get worse over time, so it’s important to treat it as early as possible.
Osteomalacia, or "soft bones," is a weakening of the bones due to low levels of vitamins and minerals, including phosphorus, calcium, and vitamin D. Phosphorus is a mineral that is important for bone health.
