My phosphorus is low at 1.9. I eat a regular diet. What would cause low phosphorus ?

Low phosphorus : Low serum phosphorus levels can be due to hyperparathyroidism or vitamin D deficiency. Phosphorus is an important mineral for all cells in the body. I recommend that you consult an endocrinologist to determine the cause of your phosphorus deficiency. Normal levels are 2.7-4.5.
