Answer

Phosphate replacement

Massive urinary phosphate loss is a problem intrinsic to the disorder, and the phosphate must be replaced.

Potassium phosphate/sodium acid phosphate (K-Phos Neutral, Phos-Nak)

This is a neutralized, buffered, oral phosphate-replacement solution containing 250 mg phosphorus, 280 mg potassium, 160 mg sodium . It is a combination of sodium and potassium phosphate.
