Brief Answer:

CT scan of upper abdomen, bone scan and blood for magnesium recommended.

Detailed Answer:


I have gone through your blood reports.

You have a raised alkaline phosphatase level. It could be due to liver disease or bone disorders.

Your GGT is also low. This indicates that you can have magnesium deficiency in your body.

I would advise you to do CT scan of upper abdomen, bone scan and blood test for magnesium.

Hope I have answered your query.
