Hyperphosphatemia is an important consequence of chronic renal failure (CRF). Lowering of the plasma phosphate concentration is believed to be critical in the management of patients with CRF, especially those on dialysis. Reports of the effect of CRF on the intestinal handling of phosphate in vitro have been conflicting; but what happens in vivo has not been studied. What effect a reduction in the dietary phosphate intake has on intestinal phosphate absorption in CRF in vivo is unclear. In this… CONTINUE READING
