ALP in SDS (Alkaline Phosphatase)

The emedicine article says this about Alkaline phosphatase in the SDS article:

Liver function tests
  • Transaminases (ie, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase) may be elevated in individuals with SDS.
  • Alkaline phosphatase may be within the reference range or slightly increased.
  • Findings on coagulation studies are normal, and the serum bilirubin level is within the reference range.
  • Hypoalbuminemia may be present secondary to malabsorption.
