Topic: ? about Alkaline Phosphatase levels
I haven't posted in awhile. My father died of CC back in May . I know they say that CC isn't heridetary, but I recently had some bloodwork because of fatigue. My ferritin level was below 1, not even in the range. My Alkaline PHosphatase was 153 (38-126 being normal). Bilirubin was .30 (fine). The Alkaline PHosphatase is concerning me because everything I've read about AP says that it could read high with bile duct obstruction. I've never had any pain to make me think anything about my gallbladder. The dr. wants me to take iron tabs. for a month & more bloodwork. What concerns me is that possibily the ferritin could be low & the AP high because the iron enzymes aren't being broken down & could build up the AP in the liver. Can anyone please tell me what AP levels are with someone with CC? I don't have my father's labs anymore. I gave them to my mom & it was too hard for her to keep all of the paperwork on his cancer. I know I probably sound crazy, but this has been worrying me for a week. My dr. didn't even mention the high AP, knowing that my father died of CC. Thanks!
