    high alkaline phosphate! help!

    So as well as having low T (9.3), i noticed on my bloodwork my alk phos is 182

    (35 - 110 being normal)!

    Im woried because i googled it and it said high alkaline phosphate can have something to do with liver disease and bone disorders.

    Im always breaking bones! Now im freaking out thinking i have a bone disorder.

    Also i know low testosterone correlates with bone mineral density so maybe thats why im breaking bones so easy.

    I snapped my leg (tib and fib) in august 2014, could alk phos be high due to my leg still calcifing?

    Anyway what's with this alkaline phosphate? Can somone pleeeeeeease shed some light!

    That could be elevated for any number of reasons.
    But it has nothing to do with your leg healing, since bone anabolism would decrease ALP, not increase it. Increased ALP would involve bone catabolism (osteoporosis, rickets, etc) if related to bone disease.
