User:just wanted to know if there is any link to any type of liver disease like hepatitis b or so ??
Doctor:Isolated alk phosphatase would be related to bone disease or liver disease
Doctor:in your case GGT is normal, so I do not see a concern with liver
Doctor:But a previous alcoholism is linked to higher Alk phosphatase
Doctor:Although alkaline phosphatase elevation does not always signal the presence of disease, any elevation would prompt me to redo the investigation and also wish to know your medication use apart from alcohol, looking for hepatotoxic drugs

User:300 mg
Doctor:Now are you continueing?
Doctor:This is could be a reason, the other is past alcohlic habit are two reasons for the value
