I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Is alkaline phosphatase level of 139 a cause for concern?

I ve had protein and blood in my urine. My Alkaline phosphatase was 139. I have bilateral kidney pain and HTN, that is no longer responding to my losartan. I have a CT Scan done, which was negative. But with everything going on, is there further testing that should be done?

Hi and welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thank you for your query. I am Dr. Rommstein, I understand your concerns and I will try to help you as much as I can.

If other findings are fine then this is not cause of concern but if bilirubin an dast are elevated then it may indicate certain liver disorders such as lithiasis or liver damage due to hepatitis so you should see doctor and do liver ultrasound in this case. also, you should follow hepatic diet and regulat4 your body mass and of course reduce alcohol intake.
I hope I have answered you query. If you have any further questions you can contact us in every time.
Kindly regards. Wish you a good health.

Hello. I am a 47 year old black female. I take Vitamin B complex which contains Biotin, Flonase nasal spray, calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, Inderal and synthroid. I had a total thyroidectomy 8years old ago and a hysterectomy last year. I am concerned because my alkaline phosphatase is 149. Should I be concerned about this result?

Hi, my Alkaline Phosphatase is at 161 and it says it should be no higher than 129. On the same examination, my doctor also said that I have a slight Iron deficiency so I am not taking pills once a day. Any extreme concern about my Liver? I am going for a retest in 4 weeks.

My doctor recently informed me that I have elevated alkaline phosphatase, around 140. As I look back a routine tests over past 2 years, it has been as high as 157. My doctor scheduled me to return in 3 months for another blood test. Nobody ever said anything till now. After looking up on the Internet, of course it looks worse than it possibly is. Should I be concerned about this? I don t drink or take Tylenol. Thanks
