Biochemistry UW Q; Aldolase B deficiency!

lack of aldolase B --> increase in F1-P ---> hypoglycemia, inhibition of glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis.

FA: formation of F1P ---> less phosphate

Wikipedia: low phosphate because it gets trapped in F1P

UW: low phosphate is because it gets trapped in F6P???

Can someone give me an insight here?
