Aim: The pathophysiology of developing hypophosphatemia in children with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) has not been sufficiently elucidated. Fibroblast Growth Factor 23 (FGF23) is a hormone that causes phosphate excretion from the kidneys. The increase of FGF23 in children with DKA may explain the pathophysiology of hypophosphatemia in these children. The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of serum FGF23 on serum phosphorus level in children with DKA...
