High level of alkaline phosphate, what does this mean?

High level of alkaline phosphate, what does this mean?

How high?: Do you have any symptoms? Why was the test done? 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, high alkaline phosphate may due to liver or bone disease, and sometimes intestinal disorders. It is normally high in children and during pregnancy. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

What could cause high alkaline phosphate level in child ref rang of under 300, level of 2, 125?

Consult : Children alkaline phosphates levels are much different from adults and can be quite high due to their growth spurts. However the number over 2000 may warrant a workup to make sure there is no underlying pathology. Some medication may affect the level of this enzyme as well. I would recommend to consult pediatric hematologist to see if any other tests are necessary. ...Read more

Unlikely to be a liver problem in your child, again clinical correlation is important ...Read more
