Is An Alkaline Phos Level Of 169 Norm Could It Indicate Lymohoma
Not specific for it: It is not too high, close to the upper range of normal. It can be high due tio any liver or bone disease. It does not indicate lymphoma at all, not by itself.
Phosphorus is an essential mineral. It is important in the formation high energy compounds used by the body, maintaining strong bones and teeth, and muscle and nerve functioning. Meats and milk are a good source of phosphorus. Deficiency is very rare as phosphorus is ...Read more
Alk phos: The normal range for Alkaline Phosphatase is 44 to 147 IU/L (international units per liter) or 0.73 to 2.45 microkat/L. Source: https://medlineplus. Gov/ency/article/003470.htm
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?
Yes: Alkaline phosphatase has two sources - liver and bone. Consult a specialist for further investigations.
If lymphoma goes into remission does that indicate the person is cured and can live a normal life?
Maybe: "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...See 1 more doctor answer
Is a blood level alkaline phosphatase of 46 (range 45 - 129) normal or low? Could it cause problems?
It's fine: A low alkaline phosphatase level never means anything, and reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside in the first place. Stop worrying and be grateful for good health.
Upper end of normal: The level is above the upper limit for normal but not by much. All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and you should discuss it with your doctor and see this site for info. Http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003470.htm.
Stop worrying: Unless there is something else obviously wrong, the fact that your alk phos is slightly above the range for most (not all) apparently healthy middle-aged sedentary people shouldn't bother you. You may even still be growing, or might be one of those folks whose alk-phos is up on a non-fasting specimen.
Liver disease, etc..: This usually means liver involvement. It can also mean biliary obstruction, pregnancy, and bone diseases. If can be transiently elevated in acute pancreatitis. Other lab values need to be looked at to determine the specific cause. See your doctor to go over the rest of the blood work.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 4 more doctor answers
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.
I am 32 years old and my SGOT reading is 334 and SPT is 105. Bilirubin, Albumin, GGT and Alkaline Phosphate are all normal. Ultrasound report - Fatty Liver? What could be happening? I've had elevated levels of SGPT and SGOT previously but never in the 3 d
In ref to blood work, what is alakine phos and alt? Is low alkaline bad? Are high ALT bad? Is a 128 cholesterol level bad? Alkaline pho =2 alt=50?
Alk phos, ALT & chol: Low alkaline phosphatase may be due to nutritional deficiencies, possibly related to malabsorption as in celiac disease, hypothyroidism or some genetic causes. 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.
Are Anion gap and Alk Phos levels inversely proportional, since one indicates alkaline and the other acid? My panel: Alk Phos Jan 32/Jun 39, Anion 5/7.
No: These are totally unrelated lab tests and look at completely different aspect of your body's chemistry.See 1 more doctor answer
I have chronic hep B and my recent LFT values were normal except my Alkaline Phosphatase level was 125, I'm scared. Does this value tend to fluctuate?
Yes: Very much so. Elevated alk phos really isn't a marker for ongoing hepatitis B. You should be congratulated on your transaminases being in the normal range.
17 month old weights 20lbs, alkaline phosphatas level of 2, 125, diarrhea x 19days, stools black not back to normal, ?
Failure to thrive: Your child's weight is below the standard curve for age, and with this prolonged diarrhea and black stools and severe increase in the alkaline phosphatase, I am very concerned and I think your baby might have severe vitamin d defficiency, anemia, and electrolytes disturbances that might put his life at risk. He needs full work up at least by a pediatrician or a pediatric gastroenterologist.
In 2008 - alkaline phosphatase level 166 and liver size 180mm. In 2016 my liver was 157mm, no alkaline phosphatase tested. Just has tests again - alk phos 121, liver size 210mm. Why alk phos lower but liver larger? How Can I shrink it? How long to?
Need more info: 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, one reason for your liver to be larger could be fatty infiltration. If you are overweight, lose weight. If you are diabetic, better control of diabetes is important. Do not drink alcohol at all. Have your medications checked by your doctor
