Understanding Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) in Ghaziabad


What is Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) in Ghaziabad?

An Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) test measures the amount of ALP enzyme in the body. This test helps detect liver diseases, such as hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, and bile duct obstruction. It is done as part of routine health checkups or a liver function test to detect any liver damage.

What does Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) measure?

An Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) test measures the quantity of ALP enzyme present throughout the body. The main sources of this enzyme are the liver and bones. It exists in different forms depending on where it originates, such as liver ALP, bone ALP, and intestinal ALP. In the liver, it is found on the edges of the cells that join together to form bile ducts. 

ALP levels can be increased during pregnancy as it is found in the placenta of pregnant women. It is also higher in children because their bones are in the growth phase. ALP is often high during growth spurts (a short period when an individual experiences quick physical growth in height and body weight).

Frequently Asked Questions about Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) in Ghaziabad

Q. What dietary sources can improve my ALP levels?

You must consult your doctor if your ALP levels are deranged. However, some dietary sources like spinach, broccoli, garlic, strawberries, watermelon, raisins, dates, figs, chia seeds, and flax seeds can improve your ALP levels.

Q. What are the symptoms of bone diseases?

The signs and symptoms suggesting a bone disorder include bone and joint pain, increased frequency of fractures, and deformed bones.

Q. Is there any risk associated with an ALP test?

There is usually no risk associated with this test. However, some people may feel a slight sting when a needle is pricked to collect the blood sample and may experience some bleeding that is normal and usually not bothersome. Rarely, some people may also experience slight swelling or bruising at the site of the needle prick. Applying ice 3-4 times a day for about a week may help reduce swelling and bruising. If it does not get better, consult your doctor.

Q. Is fasting required before an ALP test?

No, fasting is not required before an ALP test. You can eat or drink normally as per your daily routine before the test.

Q. When may I need an Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) test?

You may need an ALP test if you notice symptoms of liver disease, bile duct disorders, or bone disorders, such as the yellowing of the skin or eyes, dark and pale urine, light-colored stool, nausea, vomiting, belly pain, bone pain, joint pain, and frequent fractures.
