Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Yes, your ALP level is slightly high as well as your ALT. It is just mildly elevated, so there is nothing alarming. Please do not worry or be anxious.
Very high levels of ALP can be caused by liver problems, such as hepatitis, blockage of the bile ducts (obstructive jaundice), gallstones, cirrhosis, liver cancer, or cancer that has spread (metastasized) to the liver from another part of the body.
So this requires further detailed investigation. If you consume alcohol regularly, then the levels can be secondary to alcohol consumption. Hepatitis will also present with elevated levels and there will be associated symptoms such as loss of appetite, fever, jaundice, e.t.c
I will advise you to get a CT SCAN of the abdomen done, as well as get the hepatitis panel tested ( A, B, C and E ). Both IgG and IgM antibodies need to be tested, IgM indicates a recent infection.
Kindly do not consume any more alcohol till the liver has recovered. It is only mildly elevated, so the recovery can be expected soon. You can also discuss with your physician and take Syrup. Silymarin, which hastens the liver recovery. Try to avoid spicy food, and drink plenty of water. Consume more of fruits and green vegetables like kale, spinach, broccoli, e.t.c
One again, I will assure you, the values are just mildly elevated, so they can be brought down easily. Please do not worry.
