Frequently asked questions

The Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) test will measure the level of ALP in your blood. A general
ALP test might only tell the amount of ALP in your blood. With the help of ALP levels,
doctors can determine the presence of any liver or bone disease. If you want to know all the
different types of phosphatases in your body, you will have to go for an ALP isoenzyme test.
The ALP isoenzyme test is an advanced test that will also tell the origin location of different
phosphatases in the body.

As discussed above, you need the Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) test to confirm the presence
of any liver disease. Doctors also discover the damage in bones, bile duct, and other regions
with the help of the Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) test. Diseases like jaundice might cause
damage to the liver. In such a case, you need the Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) test to ensure
that the liver is not damaged. Besides diagnosis, the Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) test will
also help measure the effectiveness of ongoing treatment for any liver or bone disease.

Symptoms of liver or bone diseases will demand an ALP test. If the ALP levels are abnormal
in a general ALP test, the doctors might ask for an ALP isoenzyme test. Some symptoms
that indicate the requirement for an Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) test are as follows:
โ€ข Yellowing of skin and the eyes (Jaundice)

โ€ข Pain or swelling in the abdomen area
โ€ข Nausea
โ€ข Vomiting
โ€ข Excessive tiredness
โ€ข Dark-coloured urine
โ€ข Light-coloured poop
โ€ข Unexplained/sudden loss of weight
โ€ข Bone ache

The normal range of ALP in the human body is between 20 and 140 U/L. Some diagnostic
centres might also have the normal ALP range between 30 and 130 U/L. Usually, children
and pregnant females have higher ALP levels in their bodies.

Some pathology centres offer home sample collection facilities for an ALP test. However,
you will have to pay extra for taking an ALP test at home.
