Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is a protein found in all body tissues. Tissues with particularly high amounts of ALP include the liver, bile ducts, and bone. It is found elevated in conditions like, Anemia, Biliary Obstruction, Bone disease, healing fracture, hepatitis, fatty liver. In your child's case it may be related to Hepatitis or Biliary obstruction as she has a History of Jaundice. Get her evaluated by a Gastroenterologist to rule out the causative factor.
Good Luck.
