In brief: Dialysis?

Most frequently associated.
With chronic dialysis but can occur with renal failure including diabetic as well as other causes of abnormal calcium metabolism including abnormal parathyroid gland function.

In brief: Not directly

Calciphylaxis can occur in the setting of kidney problems (renal failure), abnormal calcium-phosphate regulation, and hyperparathyroidism, but the actual cause still remains unclear. Having diabetes may increase the risk for calciphylaxis.
Also trauma to fatty tissue from Insulin injections may be a separate risk factor.
