I got blood work done; CBC, BCP, TSH and Urine Analysis, and everything was fine, except she mentioned my alkaline lelves to be a tad elevated (she suggested it be from medicine or perhaps alcohol, which can't be). I did my own research and discovered the following;
"Alkaline Phosphatase: Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme that is found in all body tissue, but the most important sites are bone, liver, bile ducts and the gut. A high level of alkaline phosphatase in your blood may indicate bone, liver or bile duct disease. Certain drugs may also cause high levels. Growing children, because of bone growth, normally have a higher level than adults do. Low levels indicate low functioning adrenal glands, protein deficiency, malnutrition or more commonly, a deficiency in zinc."
i assumed that since low levels of alkaline can be due to protein deficienciy, malnutrition or a zinc deficiency it can be assume that perhaps i have the opposite, HIGH level of protein and too much zinc... i eat lots of tuna daily and my protein is at around 270g (i'm 177 at 5'10 and im 22) I will get the blood work done again in 6 months to check anyway... bloodwork from 2 years ago had my alkaline at normal range.
Ideas, suggestions, comments?
