Serum phosphorus and intact parathyroid hormone levels were not reduced with 12 weeks of rilonacept therapy.
CKD patients with and without diastolic dysfunction had average serum phosphate levels of 7.3 and 5.5 mg/dL, respectively.

Replacing foods containing phosphorus-based additives with similar foods not containing these additives can control hyperphospatemia without interfering with nutritional status.
