Alkaline Phosphatase & Albumin High On Cbc - Anyone Else Have These?

4 posts in this topic

I just got some labs back & am waiting for the doc to get them & get around to calling me about them. I probably won't hear from him until Tuesday. But in the meantime I was wondering if anyone else has had these come back slightly high? I read up on them & it seems they can be a sign of liver or kidney problems but also a sign of intestinal inflammation esp. the small intestine --- which would fit right in with celiac disease. I'm gluten-free 17 mos. now but I suppose I could still be inflamed.

High albumin is often a sign of dehydration. Is my Squirmy drinking enough water?  ;) 

 

alkaline phosphatase can be indicative of several dozen things, so it's hard to say.... and "elevated" is one thing, HIGH is another.

 

How high were they?

 

(I only know all this from reading my Dad's labs for 9 years. He had kidney disease, tanked hematocrits, among other problems and I wanted to know what everything meant. ) 

 

My CBC levels were all erratic for a few years and now, they are perfect. My doc said they can go up or down--even from one day to the next.Same thing with the TSH. Bounces around depending on if you get glutened or if you have breakfast before the blood draw.

You betcha I get enough water! I did read that about dehydration but nixed it immediately as a cause. I drink enough water to drown a horse. :lol: An I visit the ladies room 40 times a day b/c of the water intake. :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Okay, here are the #'s & ranges 

Alkaline phosphatase 157 range is 39 -117

Albumin 5.6 range is 3.5 - 5.2

 

Good to know about the CBC levels being erratic for a while. Thanks!

I would not worry at all about the albumin. a .4 is not much.

I figured you get enough water., As a native Floridian, you're no dummy about hydrating.

 

The A P range looks a bit high. I am interested in what the doc says about it, because it can be associated with any number of things.

keep me posted and big hugs. Miss ya..... but I know how busy you are with your new home!! yaaay!!
