Brief Answer:
Kindly upload your lab reports

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,

Alkaline phosphatase is increased mainly in 2 pathologies:
- rheumatismal diseases
- cholecyst issues

High alkaline phosphatase alone cannot be treated; instead, underlying condition yes, can be treated. You can send your reports in and let me analyze them further before running into final conclusions.

Thank you!

I am not satisfied with your answer at all. There must be supplements or procedures to help my condition. The internet shows some, how come you do not.

Detailed Answer:
Hi back XXXX,

Thank you for following up.

My intention is to provide specific advice and recommendations for you and not generally speaking as per in Internet. That's why I have asked to have all your lab results to assist you specifically, i..e advising on specific treatment for underlying cause.

Anyway, generally speaking, a high dose of antioxidants (e.g. vit. E) and vit. D.

As lack of vit.D might be one factor causing high phosphatase levels, you should :
- take vit.D supplementation
- consume more foods high in vit.D and E (fish, dairies, etc.)

Hope it helped!
