Re: High phosphate level

 Sixteen days into hospitalization, suddenly blood shows high phosphate. MD's ordered calcium acetate. First dose was today. Reluctantly agreed to take calcium supplement about ten days ago to avoid being chastised for "refusing medication". Could this have had any effect on blood phosphate level? Thoughts/opinions re: calcium acetate to correct phosphate level. Any other options once discharged?

There is a long list of things that can lead to this. Renal failure, low parathyroid function, excess phosphate intake (red meats, dairy and colas are high), hemolysis, magnesium deficiency, excess vitamin D, certain medications........ Do you know what they have been giving you? What kind of diet? Any other abnormalities on your labs such as decreased blood counts or pH alterations?
