Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)

Liver Health

A healthy result should fall into the range 44 - 126 U/L, or 44.00 - 126.00 IU/L.

Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme found throughout our bloodstream. ALP assists in the breakdown of proteins in the body and exists in different forms, depending on where it originates. Most commonly produced by the liver, ALP is also made in our bones, intestine, kidneys, and (in pregnant women) the placenta creates ALP.  Tests to determine ALP levels in blood are performed during routine assessments of liver function and bone density. Symptoms of liver disease include:

            -Jaundice (yellowing of skin and eyes)

            -Abdominal pain

            -Nausea / vomiting.

Symptoms of bone disease include:

            -Bone / joint pain

            -Increased frequency of fractures

            -Deformed bones

It is worth noting that some medicines, including: antibiotics, birth control pills, long-term aspirin use, and oral diabetic medications may affect the results of an ALP test.
