Q: My phosphorus is high. I take my binders and try to follow a low phosphorus diet. But I don’t feel any different when my phosphorus is high, so what’s the big deal? A: Even though you might not feel the effects, high phosphorus levels can cause damage to your body. Some people may feel itchy when their phosphorus is high, while others feel nothing at all. It is extremely important to keep your phosphorus within normal range.
