I have had 2 elevated Alkaline Phosphatase readings....both done after a 14 hour fast. 1st was 144, two months later it was 167. Intestinal Isoenzymes was 0, placental isoenzymes was undetectable, Bone isoenzymes was 38 and liver isoenzymes was 62. I am 47, female, type O positive blood, hemoglobin A1c is 5.8% and estimated blood glucose is 114mg/dl. I do not drink, I am about 15 lbs overweight, I watch my carb and sugar intake. I do have mild discomfort in the stomach area (mainly on the sides), nothing major, my bowels are never on a schedule and tend to mostly be loose. I am going for an abdominal sonogram in a few days but seeking a bit more information and possible culprits.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Non alcoholic steatohepatitis is the likely cause here. You need to lose weight and modify diet and lifestyle and wait and observe.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
