Difficult question: Why the ursodiol? If for blood cholesterol, there may be better options (I don't see CF or PBC on your history). Sounds like you're getting a work up for the elevated enzymes. Consider a virtual consult with GI specialist for a thorough review of lab and imaging results.

Viral infection: Often times this can be caused by a viral infection. It should definitely be watched to see if it comes down on it's own. If not, further testing incuding an ultrasound should be done to make sure nothing is blocked, like the gallblader tubes.

Normal in pregnancy: The majority of the time, the alkaline phosphatase will be reported as elevated if checked during pregnancy, although in most cases there is no disease at the time. It is well known that the placenta produces this enzyme.

Many.: Meats include, fish, lamb, pork, and beef. You can also get protein from many vegetables, especially legumes like peanut, soybean, pinto bean, peas, etc. Also consider dairy products like milk, yogurt, greek yogurt (higher protein), and cheese.
