PHOSPHATE-HYPOPHOSTHATEMIA CAUSES

1. Alcoholism with malnutrition.

2. Re-feeding syndrome which can lead to intracellular shifting of phosphate. This is because, as the glyco­gen level is returned to normal, the muscle cells become anabolic and take up phosphate, thereby reducing serum levels.

3. Alcoholic ketoacidosis.
