Need to examine: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, bone and liver are the two common sources of alkaline phsosphatase. In your case it is probably coming from the bone, but cannot provide a more meaningful opinion without examining you. Talk to the doc who did the tests.
