Question questin about "serum Phosphate"need help"please"

Hi
First i need to say I have Osteoporosis and am being tested for Thyroid.
I noticed some of the blood work I got back from the lab said my calcium
was ok and had an "h" by the Phosphate. Their high end of range was 4.1
and mine phosphate result was 4.8 So do I have anything to be concerned about?? I have to say I was"shocked" that my calcium level was ok because I haven't been taking calcium tablets "much" because they"wellllll constipate:-)
But I found out from reading hormones and all that the parathyroid takes calcium from your bones to keep the blood calcium level ok....I'm confused.
Since then I have been trying hard to take my vitamin and calcium ,oh and I'm Vit.D insufficient.Thanks for any help..you are the best!!! Shirl
