Hello and welcome,
A high level of ALP can indicate liver damage which may be due to secondary tumor deposits from a malignant carcinoid tumour.The cause for the increase should be detected. You may be prescribed antihistaminic drugs like cetrizine for relief in itching. Application of calamine lotion may provide soothing effect. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause.Discuss your concerns with your treating doctor. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
