Diabetologist 's  Response
high alkaline phospahatse does not diagnose a disease, but it indicates problems with bones,liver,or any other infections,sepsis etc
The normal range is 44 to 147 IU/L (international units per liter).

Normal values may vary slightly from laboratory to laboratory. They also can vary with age and gender. High levels of ALP are normally seen in children undergoing growth spurts and in pregnant women

high esr also suggests infection,bone problems etc

Adults (Westergren method):normal values

•Men under 50 years old: less than 15 mm/hr
•Men over 50 years old: less than 20 mm/hr
•Women under 50 years old: less than 20 mm/hr
•Women over 50 years old: less than 30 mm/hr
