Renal control of phosphorus and magnesium

Document Type



Phosphorus and magnesium are important components of many organic molecules and serve as intermediates of metabolic pathways. As such, their concentration in the body must be maintained within narrow limits. Phosphorus and magnesium balance is maintained by the kidney, the bone, and the gastrointestinal system. Accordingly, the roles and interactions of all three sites must be considered. This paper focuses on the renal regulation of phosphorus and magnesium.
