Main role of acid phosphatase?

Main role of acid phosphatase?

Stage of cancer: Sensitivity of prostatic acid phosphatase is very low 39% of the prostatic carcinomas acid phosphatase level was below the upper limit of normal fixed at 3.2ng. Specificity is high t 96% of cases with abnormally high ri acid phosphatase levels, the diagnosis was adenocarcinoma. In the absence of bone metastases high acid phosphatase level is predictive of lymph node involvement in 90%.Serum tar. ...Read more

I have low vitamin d, low alkaline phosphatase, high uric acid and high triglycerides. Is there something that links all of these together?

I have low vitamin d,  low alkaline phosphatase, high uric acid and high triglycerides.  Is there something that links all of these together?

There is some: relationship between low vitamin D and alkaline phosphatase as both influence bone metabolism. But typically dysfunctional bone turnover raises alkaline phosphatase; a low value suggests some impairment of the gall bladder/bile duct/liver system. High uric acid is often genetic, but can be dietary: seafood (scallops/sardines), liver, red meat. Beer/sugary drinks raise uric acid and triglycerides! ...Read more

Bun 6, alkaline phosphatase 135, B12 >1000, folate (folic acid) 19.5, ALT 80, 6 mos after a "false positive" hep c test. Are these numbers bad? Or normal?

Bun 6, alkaline phosphatase 135, B12 >1000, folate (folic acid) 19.5, ALT 80, 6 mos after a "false positive" hep c test. Are these numbers bad? Or normal?

High ALT: Any licensed physician can work up an elevated alt / sgpt. It is essential to rule out hepatitis b, hepatitis c, wilson's, and hemochromatosis. All are treatable diseases that are likely to kill you if missed. You may never find the cause of the high alt -- it can be something as simple as taking a lot of Motrin or not exercising. Good luck. ...Read more

Fairly normal: Your serum cholesterol is slightly high and this value may need to be repeated along with a full lipid profile. Your ALT (SGPT) is slightly high, but without a full clinical history there is no way in which to interpret this. Go and discuss these with the doctor who ordered the tests. Best wishes. ...Read more

How should I lower my alkaline phosphatase?

Elevated Alk Phos: Question would be why is your alkaline phosphatase elevated ? ? If the levels are abnormal, there is usually a reason. Treating the symptoms without understanding why you have an elevated level is counter-productive. You should see your primary care physicians and have labs re-checked. If it's persistently high, then there should be referral to a rheumatologist or orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

Medicine for high alkaline phosphatase levels?

Medicine for high alkaline phosphatase levels?

Wrong approach: Alkaline phosphatase is a lab value to tell a physician what is happening, not a medical problem to treat. It can be high just because you're growing (teens tend to be maybe 5x the upper limit of the reference range). About 5% of older folks have a high alk phos for "no reason", presumably paget's of the bone that never becomes evident; nonfasting samples may have it from the intestine. ...Read more
