it is difficult to interpret labs without knowing the medical setting under which they were drawn. Having said that, there are many things besides liver issues that can cause a slight increase of alkaline phosphatase. I would recommend talking to your doctor about this, and perhaps having a repeat blood draw in 1 to 2 months. Good luck.
