The level of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) in your blood is determined by taking a blood test. Although ALP can be found in other tissues, the liver and bones are the primary producers of ALP in the blood. Increases in the presence of an elevated ALP may indicate liver disease or a bone disorder, but it is not a diagnostic test in and of itself. Alkaline phosphatase test Prem Nagar comes in two primary varieties: the basic ALP test and the ALP isoenzyme test. Several blood tests typically include an ALP measurement, including the liver panel (HFP or LFT) and the comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP). The alp test Prem Nagar only examines the total amount of ALP in the blood, but the ALP isoenzyme test can tell you which kind of alkaline phosphatase came from which organ. Your doctor may recommend alp blood test Prem Nagar if you previously had an abnormal ALP level. An isoenzyme test may paint a more comprehensive picture but is more challenging and expensive, and some labs may not offer it
If your alkaline phosphatase (ALP) levels are consistently high, it could be a sign that your liver is damaged or that you have a bone condition
Unless otherwise instructed by your doctor, you should fast for 6 hours before the test. Numerous medications can alter laboratory results.
Within 2-8 weeks of stopping the offending drug or alcohol, ALP levels should return to normal. If the slight increase is due to fatty liver, losing weight should reduce it.
The normal level for ALP is between 30 to 120 IU/L. Children generally have higher levels of ALP, this is because their bones are still growing
