Hi.
Welcome to just answer. I am here to answer questions for education and information. I will respond shortly with an answer, or a question for you

Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

The main problem here is the higher side TSH which can indicate the beginnings of hypothyroidism.

The increased alk phos is not specific to a condition, but can represent liver problems, or increased bone breakdown.

Hence the referral.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. [This must be done manually]. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.
