Hi TIffany,

Were they able to determine anything from your son's high ALP levels? How high were they when you first tested? My son, 30 months old, had ALP levels come back OVER 3000 two weeks ago. All his other levels are normal. We will be doing follow up bloodowrk today. I'm just trying to find out some info on what it may and may not be. Thanks!
