Resolved Question:

hi just got results from a private health check phosphate level is 1.57 should this be of concern, I am on Alendronic Acid tablets. All my tests were really healthy, bloods also good apart from LDL 4.2 /HDL 2.3. and Gamma on high side which my doctor is aware of but my liver function is good, I will see doctor at some point but just wondered if you could answer the question about what would make phosphate high, and how do I reduce it. thank you nicky

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The phosphorus levels are slightly high.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Since all the other tests are normal, I would not worry too much at all.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Main thing is the kidney function i.e. the urea and creatinine.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If those are normal, I would just relax

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should take a diet low in products that are high in phosphate

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am giving you a link to phosphorus high foods that you should avoid.

JACUSTOMER-ab5ie6rw- :

Yes kidney function good.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

That is good to know.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Just lower the phosphorus in your diet.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Repeat the test in four weeks.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should be fine.
