Parents can observe rapid fatigue in children after light physical labor. If the child is an infant, then he cannot sit down, and there are also joint pains. Due to the deformation of the bones, a gait disorder develops.
The physician turned to the doctors and said that if the child's health is characterized by the presence of bone changes, delayed growth and development, insufficient weight gain, early tooth loss, then the activity of alkaline phosphatase should be immediately determined. This is done in order to exclude hypophosphatasia, a rare disease that is manifested by a change in the amount of minerals in the bones of the skeleton and teeth, as well as systemic complications.
