Alkaline Phosphatase Blood Test - More Information

The alkaline phosphatase test, also known as an alkaline phosphatase blood test, alkaline phosphatase lab test, alk phos test and ALP blood test, measures the alkaline phosphatase blood level.

Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme primarily involved with metabolism in the bone and liver. The alkaline phosphatase blood test is a routine screening test to look for liver, gall bladder or bone abnormalities. In the setting of these types of conditions, the alkaline phosphatase levels is often elevated. When a liver condition is of primary concern, a GGT test is also frequently ordered to confirm whether the source of the alkaline phosphatase is the liver (elevated GGT levels) or the bone (normal GGT levels). Alkaline phosphates blood levels are part of the commonly ordered LFT test panel that is used to screen for liver abnormalities.
