Significance of test

Phosphate is an anion that contains the mineral phosphorus. The body needs phosphorus to build and repair bones and teeth, nerves function, and muscles contraction. Most of the phosphorus is found in bones.
The kidneys maintain level of phosphate in the blood and excreted by kidneys. Kidney diseases cause increase level of phosphate in the blood.
Calcium and phosphate levels react in opposite direction. Increase in serum calcium levels causes fall in phosphate levels. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) regulates the levels of calcium and phosphorus.
