Maybe for some people, but not for me. LCHF prevents me from using milk, and my propensity for kidney stones prevents me from using calcium supplements, so my bones are more or less on their own. Still, I've passed my last two bone density scans with flying colors - the most recent one being about six months ago. Doc sez I'm the last person he'd expect to be losing bone tissue.

That list will keep growing with new studies. I think everything within the body gets affected. Organs like the kidneys and eyes start to fail faster because of microscopic blood supply systems.

It might be easier to find systems that aren't being screwed up by wacked out blood glucose levels.
