How common is hypophosphatemia

Hypophosphatemia is defined as serum phosphate level less than 2.5 mg/dL (0.8 mmol/L). In unselected hospitalized patients, hypophosphatemia has a prevalence of 2% to 3%. However, that increases dramatically in selected populations: 34% for intensive care unit patients, 65% to 80% for patients with sepsis.
