Hi and thank you so much for this query.

Alkaline phosphatase generally screens for diseases related to the liver and the the bones. From the value you have reported, this is normal. There is no need to take any further action as this values is normal.

Thanks for using our services and feel free to ask for clarifications if need be. I wish you well.
