the ALP levels what you have mentioned are never normal.
A cause for this has to be searched.
Also the elevated bilirubin is indirect bilirubin which means there is increased breakdown of RBCs in the circulation.
your child should be evaluated for any of the hemolytic anaemias and Hep A,B positivity.
Thank you...
