In this case, cinacalcet would be a reasonable option especially in light of the hyperphosphatemia. However, I would first ensure the hypocalcemia has been corrected and, throughout treatment, calcium needs to be monitored. Activated vitamin D is also a consideration but care would have to be taken to control phosphate with your binder of choice.
