Hyperphosphatemia is a very dangerous condition. Some of the causes of the disease include acute phosphate load, acute extracellular shift of phosphate, acute or chronic kidney disease and a primary increase in tubular phosphate reabsorption. Examples of acute phosphate load are tumor lysis syndrome, rhabdomyolysis, laxatives, and vitamin D toxicity. Cellular shifts are lactic or ketoacidosis. Hyperphosphatemia are commonly seen with hypocalcemia and can be life threatening. If renal function is impaired, hemodialysis would be the best options to remove phosphates from the body.
