Understanding Lactate Dehydrogenase, Serum in Panchkula

What is Lactate Dehydrogenase, Serum in Panchkula?

The Lactate Dehydrogenase, Serum test measures the amount of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) enzyme in the blood. This enzyme is found in nearly all of the body’s cells, with the highest levels in the cells of the heart, liver, muscles, red blood cells and kidneys. It is released in the bloodstream as a result of tissue damage following an injury. This test can help detect a variety of conditions, including heart disease, liver disease, muscle injury, and certain types of cancer.

What does Lactate Dehydrogenase, Serum measure?

The Lactate Dehydrogenase, Serum test measures the level of the enzyme lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in the blood. LDH is involved in energy production and is present in many types of cells, including those in the heart, liver, muscles, kidneys, brain, and blood cells. When these cells are damaged or destroyed, they release LDH into the bloodstream. Therefore, a minor amount of LDH is continuously released into the bloodstream as part of regular cell turnover and metabolic processes. However, elevated LDH is concerning because it usually signals underlying tissue damage, inflammation, or a wide range of diseases such as liver disease, heart disease, hemolytic anemia, and certain cancers. Its elevation necessitates further diagnostic evaluation to determine the specific cause and appropriate treatment.
