Two recent blood tests indicate alkaline phosphatase levels of 150 and 146. All my other blood tests are well within normal. Should I be worried?
If lymphoma goes into remission does that indicate the person is cured and can live a normal life?
"lymphoma" is a name for 40+ subtypes of lymphoma.
They all do not behave the same and not all are curable.
Remission (no disease evident) is common in lymphoma. The chance that the lymphoma is cured after remission depends on tumor and patient factors. That is too complicated to further detail in 400 characters... ...Read more

My Hemoglobin level was 11.3 and my hematocrit was 34.6 everything else was normal my question is does this mean I have lymphoma I'm so scared?
Borderline: These values are borderline low but are not unusual in menstruating females who may be low in iron stores. Unless these levels have dropped significantly from several months ago, I would simply start taking daily iron to make up for monthly blood loss. However your physician is best to advise you about this and when to take another blood count. Not lymphoma. ...Read more
AST. ALT and Alkaline Phosphatate levels have been continuously decreasing for several years but are still in the normal range. Is that good or bad?
Calcium high at 10.7, alkaline Phosphatase very low at 10. Negative parathyroid, not anemic, celiac, copper level is normal. What could be the cause?
Watch it: You may have hypocalciuric hypercalcemia, with probably isn't worth the workup as it's not something worth treating. I trust you're not taking a thiazide or dolomite pills, or overdoing milk / antacids. Unless you also have a low albumin, this is unlikely to impact your life. Low alk-phos is never worrisome. Best wishes. ...Read more

Low cholesterol may be ok but if your HDL is also very low in relation to your ldl, it may be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Mildly high alt may signify liver injury or inflammation which can have many potential causes. ...Read more

Is an alkaline phosphatase level of 125 concerning? I have hepatitis B and am now afraid I have PBC. Current ALT and AST are normal.
Alkaline phosphatase: Hep B is not a condition associated with PBC, though PBC may occur in persons without associated conditions. Normal AP is up to 120 in most labs. A slight elevation is usually of no significance. Only if it is rising consistently, and to high levels, would it be of concern. No reason here for concern. You can repeat the test in 3 months, just to be sure. ...Read more
