Probably: Elevation of ALPtase is of concerned but it may also indicate bone repair after a fracture. The conservative approach would be to check it again in a month to see if it gets back to normal. If the problem persists or worsens, further evaluation will be needed.

Looks fine: Lab reference ranges are set to include most, but not all, healthy couch potatoes. Don't fret over numbers like these when you feel fine.
