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. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, your alkaline phosphatase just above the normal range and by itself not a cause for concern. You may take Vitamin D3, 2000 units/day as deficiency is common. Wish you good health!
