A client who is alcoholic receiving total parenteral nutrition

A client with osteoporosis taking vitamin and calcium supplements, a client with chronic renal failure awaiting dialysis, and a client with hypoparathyroidism secondary to thyroid surgery are at risk for hyperphosphatemia. Alcoholics and clients receiving TPN are at risk for low phosphorus levels, due to poor intestinal absorption and shifting of phosphorus into cells along with insulin and glucose.
