What does it mean when you have high alkaline phosphatase levels, but low bilirubin, high aspartate transaminase?

In brief: See a hepatologist

In this setting, an elevated alkaline phosphatase (also known as alk phos), may be an indicator of bile duct obstruction, but can also be elevated in a number of other diseases, including immune injury to the bile ducts, such as primary sclerosing cholangitis or primary biliary cirrhosis.
Alk phos can also be elevated in the presence of liver masses and infection.
