A 45-year-old female asked:

Scared 1.8 phospherous level don't know what that means?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
1.8 is just a number: The range for phosphate (phosphorus) is about 2.4-4.4 mg/dl on a blood test. The normal range includes 95% of people, which means 5% of normal people will have their phosphate values outside the "normal range". A doctor can check for disorders such as calcium or vitamin d problems, parathyroid disease, poor nutrition, alcoholism, etc..., and will let the patient know if he should start worrying.
