A 19-year-old female asked:
Does a value of alkarine phosphatase 140 considered high for a young 19yrs male taking whey protein?

Alkaline phosphatase: Usually runs higher in a growing patient. Continue to follow the test at 3-6 month intervals. All the best. Unlikely to have anything to do with whey protein. Comes from liver and bone. All the best.
