This review focues on the links between iron and phosphate metabolism, the most recent comparative studies between third-generation i.v. iron compounds, the important role of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23), and the impact of hypophosphataemia on the patient. This review also presents an algorithm that can be used in patients requiring i.v. iron in anticipation of potential hypophosphataemia.
