Levels of 200 are slightly high and indicate intrahepatic cholestasis.
Since you have not mentioned other LFT values,I presume they are normal.
There is nothing to worry.
Give plenty of water to drink.
There is no role of LIV 52.
Keep getting your LFT done on regular basis.
If alkaline phosphatase levels show a consistent rising trend,then consult a Gastroenterologist to find the cause and treatment.
