Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme that is found in bone, liver and the intestine, it can be elevated for many reasons, including the drug Hexalen, as well any blockage of bile ducts (which may occur with cholelithiasis). Increasing levels may indicate some damage to the liver so monitoring the levels is prudent.

I hope this helps
