    The total alkaline phosphatase levels were determined in 118 patients with adult coeliac disease, 65 of whom had evidence of osteomalacia.

    The secretor and blood group status, intestinal isoenzyme, and liver alkaline phosphatase played no significant part in the levels of serum alkaline phosphatase found.

    There was a significant correlation between the levels of serum alkaline phosphatase and the presence of osteomalacia.
