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!

My nine year old son has not been feeling well for the past month. He has no energy and is pail. He had blood tests done and although many were slightly off it wasn t anything that suggested treatment or illness. One of the tests was for alkaline phosphatase. His was 160. Is this normal for a child?

I have been nausea for a little over a month, everyday. I had blood drawn and my alkaline phosphatase level was elevated to 139. My Dr. wants me to wait another 2 weeks and have blood drawn again. I do have pain on my right side but it is not constant. Any insight you can provide? I want to request a CT scan because I think it is my gall bladder.
