High Serum Phosphate
Lots of things: This can be fine for a growing child or teen, an older person with subclinical paget's (extremely common), or even someone who's non-fasting and just happens to raise the intestinal alk phos on eating. It's also normal for late pregnancy or if you have a healing fracture (you might not even know about, say, a foot stress fracture.). ...Read more
Low serum phophate/creatinin+phosphate excretion 24h urine, high tubular phophate reabsorption+urine d-pyr/crea ratio. Normal CA/PTH/Dvit/intake. Bad?
Do not worry: probably not problematicGet a more detailed answer ›
What causes low serum phosphate other than parathyroidism? PTH & calcium are constantly normal. Normal D vitamin because of high dose supplements.
Low phos: Phos metabolism is intake /shift/ losses. I am assuming you have good intake. So the other two are the reason, either shift inside the cells or losses from the kidney. How low is the phos? Your medication list shows no meds that can cause losses. A lab doesn't need to be treated, so rpt lab and then get a urine fractional excretion if still low. Talk to your MD. ...Read more

The latter is a subject mostly studied by arcane researchers; some folks lost phosphate through kidney defects & the diagnosis is a bit of a challenge. Best wishes. ...Read more
