This protein is produced by the liver. Low levels can indicate liver disease and kidney disease due to reduced production and loss of albumin in the urine.

Alkaline Phosphatase

This enzyme is produced by bone and liver cells. High levels are seen in some bone disorders and liver disorders like obstructive jaundice, gall stones and space occupying lesions. Levels up to three times are seen in children within the age group when they are rapidly gaining height.

Alpha fetoprotein
High levels are seen in patients with cancer of the liver and teratomas affecting the ovary and testis. However, not all cancer of the liver will have high levels. High levels are also seen in normal pregnant women. Levels which are much higher than that expected for the period of pregnancy may suggest foetal abnormalities.
