Frequently Asked Questions

A Phosphorus test is usually ordered in combination with Calcium, Vitamin D or Parathyroid Hormone PTH to help diagnose abnormalities in calcium and phosphorous imbalance.

Your doctor may recommend this test for you if they suspect your phosphorous levels are either too high or too low. The symptoms include:

  1. Higher anxiety levels
  2. Pain in the bones/Increased fragility
  3. Irregular breathing
  4. Loss of appetite
  5. Sudden weight loss or gain

Similar to calcium, 85% of the phosphorus is present in the bones and is vital for maintaining healthy bone and teeth. Phosphorus is also found in the body as phosphates and plays an imperative role in energy production in the form of ATP (which includes 3 phosphate molecules). ATP is readily used for several body functions. Phosphorus also has a vital role to play in the growth and repair of body cells and tissues. Phosphorus is present in various foods and is absorbed readily; hence its deficiency is rare.
