Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme produced by liver and biliary tract. It is increased in case of liver damage or due to obstruction in biliary tract.
Your alkaline phosphatase is increased due to fatty changes in the liver.
It can only come down if you take the following precautions:
1. Quit smoking and alcohol if you are smoker and alcoholic.
2. Restrict foods rich in fats and oils.
3. Take easily digestible foods like simple carbohydrates and moderate quantity of proteins.
4. Drink good quantity of water.
5. Keep a check on your liver by ultrasound abdomen and getting your alkaline phosphatase levels estimated at least once in 3 months.
Hope the information provided is useful.
All the best.

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.

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
