Low iron: Elevated alk phos is seen with liver and bone disorder. Iron deficiency is suspected, but chronic inflammation may cause most of the lab abnormalities. A hematologist could shed some light on these varied lab abnormalities. Collaboration with a rheumatologist would also be helpful to identify a chronic inflammatory process.
