Hello,

Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme found primarily in bones and the liver.Some is found ion intestines and kidneys.

The conditions causing elevated alkaline phosphatase in the blood are rapid bone growth (during puberty), bone disease (osteomalacia or Paget's disease), hyperparathyroidism, or damaged liver cells due to some liver pathology.

More investigations are needed to rule out these possibilities one by one.

Pls consult a physician and get yourself evaluated clinically as well as through investigations to find out the cause of elevated alkaline phosphatase.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.
