In brief: Unnecessary
Some non-medical practitioners say that allergy can occur to virtually any substance in the environment.
Allergists define allergy as an over-reaction of the immune system to very small amounts of foreign substances that enter the body. While large amounts of phosphate taken as a supplement could cause GI upset & diarrhea, in my opinion there is no such thing as true phosphate allergy.
