Alkaline Phosphatase is an enzyme found in your bloodstream. It helps break down proteins in the body and exists in different forms, depending on where it originates. Your liver is one of the main sources of ALP, but some is also made in your bones, intestines, pancreas, and kidneys. Higher-than-normal levels of ALP in your blood may indicate a problem with your liver or gallbladder. This could include hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver cancer, gallstones, or a blockage in your bile ducts. High levels may also indicate an issue related to the bones such as rickets, Paget’s disease, bone cancer, or an overactive parathyroid gland. In rare cases, high ALP levels can indicate heart failure, kidney cancer, other cancer, mononucleosis, or bacterial infection. I would advise you to meet a gastroenterologist so that you can be examined and treated accordingly. You should avoid alcohol consumption, exercise regularly and drink plenty of water.
