ALP stands for alkaline phosphatases and is an enzyme that is partly found in large quantities in the liver and skeleton but also throughout the body.
ALP is a liver marker that is tested in the investigation of liver cell damage and follow-up of liver disease. It is also used when liver metastases are suspected, as well as in different types of bone diseases when greatly elevated values are seen.
This is how it works: The test is a blood test that is carried out at the selected sampling unit.
Sample response: You normally have a response within 6 banking days after taking the sample. The test answer is sent digitally to your e-mail. Together with your test results, you will receive a report in Swedish about your values and the doctor's comment.
Remember: Bring valid identification with you when taking the sample.
ALP is one of several markers used in monitoring liver values. It is mainly used to investigate liver cell damage and follow-up of liver disease. In various bone diseases, greatly elevated values can be seen.
ALP (alkaline phosphatases), AST and ALT as well as GT, gamma-glutamyltransferase, are markers that measure liver values together, these are included in our packages Stor Hälsokontroll Man and Stor Hälsokontroll Kvinna.
