My son is 15 months old and saw a pedi for slow down in weight. His blood work showed very high levels of alkaline phosphate and he will be re-tested in 2 months. Can anyone else share their experiences....they have put this down to Transient hyperphosphatasaemia of infancy at this stage.....however, I just feel something else is not right. He has been stumbling a lot and holding his head to one side in an odd way from time to time.....and his weight gain continues to have ceased.
Hello. Whatever happened with your son? Was it transient hyperphosphatasaemia or something else? I ask because my daughter's blood work just came back with high levels of alkaline phosphate and she has also started holding her head to the left side in a strange way. She is 14 months old.
