Effects of hypophosphopatemia on neurmuscular system a.weakness b. decreased deep tendon reflexes c. decreased bne density that can cause fractures and alterations in bone shape
An increase in the serum phosphorous level is accompanied by a decrease in the serum calcium level
The problems that occur in hyperphosphatemia center on the hypocalcemia that results when serum phosphorous levels increase.
