Yes: Yes, this is common. The elevated alk phos can either be from bone (increased turnover) or from liver. It is usually mildly elevated, and resolves with treatment without any long term harm.

How does phosphate trigger pseudomonas aeruginosa infections?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Michael Depietro
Pulmonary Critical Care 35 years experience
By changing genes: This is not completely understood, but there is experimental evidence from animal experiments and such, that the pseudomonas grown in a low phosphate environment will respond on changes in what genes the germ activates. These changes lead the bacteria to make chemicals that increase its ability to grow and cause damage. In patients with low phosphate levels this may mean > risk of infection.

Usually increases it: Cardiac output describes the amount of blood pumped through the heart in 1 minute. Two effects of high thyroid levels are an increased heart rate (more beats per minute) and an increased stroke volume (more blood per beat). These combine to increase the the cardiac output.. However, at some point, the increased work can cause the heart to fail, and the cardiac output will fall.

U need thorough exam: It depends on your symptoms you have pegged for "hypothyroidism." fatigue, weight gain, etc can be due to many other medical problems besides hypothyroidism. At this point, you need to be evaluated and treated for the hyperthyroidism and further work continued for your other symptoms.
