Dr. Robert Katz ran twice an enormous series of tests. The outcome was I was Poisoned. My family shortly after they removed his Coumadin & he was D.O.A.. My Father shortly,(4-5 years), recently had the following:Cardiac Bypass Operations, Diabetes & taking insulin, Coumadin, Amputation of both Legs below the knee, H.B.P.,Elevated Cholesterol,Nitroglycerin Caps, Etc....! Would any 2003 period Medications if administered to an extremely Healthy 40 Year old Male cause Alkaline Kinase levels of 1500 if ingested produce similar to well over L.D. 50 Symptoms Mimicking those of an Organic Phosphate L.D. 50.

I recently had a blood test and I am showing a slight elevation in Alkaline Phosphatase - normal is 41 - 151 and my reading is 158. The week before I had the blood test I was taking 800milligrams of Advil - once a day for 4 days - for my bad knees, could that make that reading high? I have never had this before.

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

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.
