Understanding Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) in Pune


What is Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) in Pune?

An Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) test measures the level of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) enzyme in the blood, which is produced by the liver, bones, kidneys, and other tissues. This test is available at an affordable price in Pune with Tata 1mg labs. It helps assess liver and bone health. Abnormal levels of ALP may indicate liver or bone disorder. 

An ALP test is generally done as part of a liver function test (LFT) or can be recommended if you have symptoms such as stomach pain and swelling, loss of appetite, dark-colored urine, bone pain, increased frequency of bone fracture, swelling in arms and/or legs, and the yellowing of the skin and eyes. No fasting is required for this test. You can eat and drink normally as per your routine. 

 

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).

Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) in Pune


Frequently Asked Questions about Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) in Pune

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.

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.
