Normal Lab Work comes back with 125 Liver Enzyme
 
my husband of 39 just had his normal lab work done for physical...everything looked great-cholesterol, urine, glucose levels all very good and normal...but he was given a number of 125 for his liver enzyme (when googling i found it must be his ALP level but want to be sure) and dr said it wasn't anything to worry about because normal levels are 115....does this sound like he was talking about the ALP enzyme? Also, they want to rerun his labs in a month just to see where the number is. should he have fasted for this test or not? he didn't and wasn't told too.....
he's a very healthy man with no symptoms of anything....should i be worried?

All I know is when I had the blood work done my #'s were all wacky...then had it redone w/fasting and everything was normal. Its always better to fast to get accurate readings. Especially, cholesterol.

Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) normal values can range from 30 to 120 depending on the lab. If your husbands result was 125, that's barely above the top normal range. I wouldn't worry about that as the doctor told you. It's good that he wants to repeat the test and see if there is any change.

Also, you don't need to fast for liver function tests.
