Phosphate depletion is known to cause not only abnormalities of electrolyte metabolism (1, 2), but also disturbances of intermediary metabolism, e.g. abnormal insulin release (3), abnormal insulin responsiveness (4) and impaired hormonal stimulation of hepatic gluconeogenesis (5). The present communication describes another metabolic consequence of phosphate depletion, severe reversible hyperlipoproteinemia in the phosphate depleted dog.
