In brief: 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.
