Hyperphosphatemia in End Stage Renal Disease
HYPERPHOSPHATEMIA IN END STAGE RENAL DISEASE: THE STRUGGLE IS REAL
For those suffering from End Stage Renal Disease, the dietary restrictions can be crippling. Among those, phosphorus is a notoriously frustrating nutrient to limit. As dietitians, it can be challenging to help our patients grasp the importance of phosphorus control and to motivate them to follow a low-phosphorus diet. During this presentation, we will briefly overview hyperphosphatemia, renal diet guidelines, and the role of binders. We will then delve into some of the newer research, including the interaction between fibroblast growth factor-23 and klotho, as well as differences in types of phosphorus and their absorption. Through learning more about hyperphosphatemia and newer research surrounding it, dietitians can potentially approach the subject with more confidence and find new ways to motivate and educate their patients.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Explain the risks of hyperphosphatemia.


  • Understand the role of diet and binders in phosphorus regulation.


  • Discuss the function of klotho and fibroblast growth factor-23 in phosphorus regulation.


  • Differentiate between organic and inorganic Phosphorus, as well as identify sources.
