alkaline phosphatase levels high
New to the forum. Been dealing with a problem for quite some time now and I'm looking for answers. Back in 2006, I had some alkaline phosphatase levels come back elevated. My family doctor told me it was nothing to worry about. I then had kidney stones (calcium stones) and lithotripsy done to remove one of the stones. My urologist wanted to get to the bottom of what was going on so more tests were done. All came back ok.
Went back because I was experiencing pain in my hips....I knew something wasn't right. At this time my alkaline phos levels were still elevated and couldn't get to the bottom of what was going on. So, they ordered up a bone scan and found nothing (this was done in 2007). Now for the heck of it, I had a bone density scan done and sure enough, there was something found in my hip they're diagnosing as osteopenia.
I was at the age of 30 when they told me this.....something isn't right and I am now 34. What are the chances of a 34 year old male getting the beginning signs of osteoporosis? My doctors have said it's extremely rare. Just this past couple of months they decided to do some more investigating on my alkaline phos levels coming back elevated and found a "spot" on my liver. Did a ultra sound and MRI and long story short, the "spot" was only a fatty deposit after seeing a liver specialist this week. Remind you, I don't drink(maybe one beer a month) on average if that. I've been on very high prescribed doses of vitamin D to help with these "bone problems" but the high doses of vitamin D won't even put a dent in it.
My symptoms are a lot of bone pain in my legs and just recently moved to my arms (some joint pain in my knees). I'm constantly tired but haven't been sick any flu which is good but could also be my immune system fighting something off.
Any answers, concerns, or slight possibilities of what this could be would be greatly appreciated.
I'm ready to hear ANYTHING right now. Thanks.
