What does it mean if your Phosphorus result is too low?

Hair Phosphorus (P) levels do not accurately reflect the adequacy of the biochemical functions of P. Further, hair P concentration does not correlate with dietary intake of P. However, hair P levels may be affected by abnormal calcium, P or vitamin D metabolism and possibly by abnormal magnesium levels. Hair P levels are measured primarily for research purposes.

P is a major component of mineralized tissue such as bone and teeth. Along with calcium, P assimilation into bone is regulated by vitamin D. Phosphates also are present in every cell of the body where they are involved in chemical energy transfer and enzyme regulation. Phosphorylation chemistry is part of carbohydrate, amino acid, and lipid metabolism.

Appropriate tests for assessing P status are measurements of whole blood (total) P level; serum vitamin D-3 and/or 25-OH vitamin D-3 level; and 24-hour urinary P level (together with measurements of calcium and magnesium).
