Low Alkaline Phosphatase can be a backdoor indicator of zinc deficiency. Zinc deficiency can be an indicator of Lyme Disease. Lyme uses zinc to replicate. But we need zinc to live. My alkaline phosphatase level was 40 and my zinc slightly low. This was before I knew I had Lyme Disease. The naturopath and md's put me on high levels of zinc piconolate to treat it (100mg/day). It was really helpful for me with some of my mental symptoms after about
3 weeks. To be specific it completely dealt with paranoia I was getting. Paranoia is a known symptom of zinc deficiency. Anyways, I know about
the alkaline phosphatase because I read all about
it thinking the low zinc was causing all my problems. Then I found out I had low zinc because of Lyme! And now I know that Lyme & Co are the real problems I was and am having!
