What is Alkaline Phosphatase (Serum) (ALP) test?
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme found in several tissues throughout the body. The highest concentrations of ALP are present in the cells that comprise bone and the liver. The raised activity of ALP is seen in liver and bone diseases. ALP blood levels can be greatly increased, for example, in cases where one or more bile ducts are blocked. This can occur as a result of inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis) or gallstones
What happens during this test?
Measuring albumin can detect signs of liver damage/diseases. caused by impaired synthesis due to either liver diseases (primary) or due to diminished protein intake (secondary). It can also be caused by increased catabolism (due to tissue damage and inflammation in the body), malabsorption of amino acids, and increased renal excretion (eg. nephrotic syndrome). Measuring albumin helps in detecting these conditions early and are used to monitor progress and response to treatment.
