Level of alkaline phosphatase

Patient

Q:  
I just received a level of 123 for alkaline phosphatase. Is this anything to be concerned about?

Doctor

A:   Alkaline Phosphatase might be elevated in liver and bone conditions as well as blockage of bile ducts. The results that you mentioned are considered to be under the normal range and you should not worry, however depending on why your physician asked for this test according to his suspicions you might need to continue a follow up visit with him. I wish you the best.
