Abnormal phosphate levels in the blood do not always cause specific symptoms except in some extreme conditions. Healthcare professionals usually order a phosphate level test alongside calcium level testing when diagnosing calcium level abnormalities. Sometimes, vitamin D and parathyroid hormone (PTH) tests.

Optimum parathyroid gland and kidney function and dietary intake, including supplements, can control blood phosphate levels.

Increased phosphate levels can occur when liver or kidney disease is present, vitamin D intoxication, underactive parathyroid glands and excessive phosphate dietary intake from supplements.

Low blood phosphate levels may be due to overactive parathyroid glands, alcoholism, malnutrition or some diuretics. Other causes of lower blood phosphate levels are vitamin D deficiency, leading to osteomalacia in adults or rickets in children, magnesium or potassium deficiency, or chronic antacids use.
