With an oral phosphate tolerance test a primary defect in intestinal phosphate absorption was found in patients with untreated familial and non-familial hypophosphataemia. It is suggested that this plays a major part in the aetiology of rickets and osteomalacia in these disorders. Vitamin D was shown to have a beneficial effect on intestinal transport of phosphate, though defective absorption was not completely corrected. If intestinal phosphate absorption is normal, oral phosphate supplements… CONTINUE READING
