Thanks for the query

Raised alkaline phosphatase is seen in obstructive jaundice. It would have helped me better if u had told me the entire LFT
U need to get an USG abd and pelvis done. Loose stools can be because of the obstruction

have a healthy living

Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Aashish Raghu's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
High ALP and loose stools indicate obstructive cholestatic disease which causes malabsorption of fats and hence diarrhoea. You need to stay away from fatty food, alcohol, hepatotoxic drugs at all costs. Avoid sex without condom unless you are proved of not having sexually transmitted Hepatitis. This problem can be seen in infective hepatitis, gall bladder stones and other related diseases of the hepatobiliary system. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink enough water. Get required ultrasound of hepatobiliary tree for diagnosing the cause as well as serum values to diagnose hepatitis as suspected by your Doctor.
