Hypophosphatemia induced by intravenous administration of Saccharated iron oxide.


Forty milligrams saccharated iron oxide was given intravenously, daily, to nine iron-deficient patients with moderate to severe anemia. During the 14-42 days of treatment, levels of serum inorganic phosphorus (Pi) decreased significantly and in a stepwise manner (before vs 1 week, P less than 0.005; 1 week vs 2 weeks, P less than 0.01). Seven of the nine patients became hypophosphatemic within 2 weeks and the other two within 4 weeks. In parallel with the decline in serum Pi, the phosphate clearance increased and tubular reabsorption of phosphate decreased. Reversion to normal levels was delayed in patients treated for the longer period.
