Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme, which is present in the blood, intestines, liver, and bones. The levels rise in liver damage or in growing bones. Children have higher levels than adults as their bones are in the growing phase. A variety of Alkaline Phosphatase is present in the placenta, hence values may be increased inpregnancy. A blood test is done to measure the enzyme alkaline phosphatase.
