Help Ca and PO4 values for the different causes of hyper/hypocalcemia?

Can someone help me out?

When answering Calcium disorder questions, it is always really useful to know what phos. values are as well to rule out/rule in various causes in the list of differentials.

I keep getting confused with these values when answering Calcium questions, so could someone just help me out with which causes have increased and decreased phosphate for both hyper and hypocalcemia?

Many thanks!
