Alkaline Phosphate Levels Increase

Posted 29 Oct 2018 at 08:28

Just wondered if anyone here has had an increase in ALP levels but had a nice drop in PSA levels?

Just want to add to this, that he was diagnosed Jan 18 and psa levels dropped throughout chemo, this was his first blood test after coming off chemo - 3 months after, level of PSA 1.6 to 0.2, and ALP 91 to 139.

ALP rising from 92 to 139 suggests to me some “bone activity” going on which needs to be checked out.
But Just for info—I started this journey in January 2017 with a PSA of 1547, which whilst on chemo went down to 94. I’m now on Radium 223 and its back up to 365? However my ALP has come down over the same period from 287 to 112, and whilst I still feel fine in myself, still playing golf, walking the dog, and gardening. I’m trying not to obsess too much over numbers!?
Obviously I’d like my PSA to be a lot lower but as long as my general health continues to prosper I ll live with it?...literally!!
