What is this test?

Phosphorus is necessary for synthesizing nucleotides, phospholipids, and the high-energy adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Increased phosphate results from defects of vitamin D metabolism, breakdown of bone, release of intracellular stores by tissue damage and/or failure of renal excretion. On the contrary, low serum phosphate results from dietary insufficiency, failure to absorb dietary phosphate, excessive uptake in bone or renal phosphate wasting.

Test Preparations

Avoid strenuous exercise.
