Raised ALP levels

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am asking on behalf of my son. He is 20 and doesn't drink or smoke or take any medication of any sort. He originally had a routine blood test for breathlessness in April. He had to repeat the test 2weeks later due to something indicating a problem with his bones. He was called in to discuss his test which came back high again, but slightly lower. He was told to have another blood test 3 months later as it was possible the abnormality was due to him maybe continuing to

grow. He had the 3rd blood test which showed ALP of 205. He now needs to have a liver scan and has also had six vials of blood taken today for testing. I am really worried about him. Does anyone know what this could be. He is otherwise well in himself with no symptoms.
