The aldolase blood test measures the amount of aldolase in your blood.  Aldolase is an enzyme that helps convert glucose into energy. It is found throughout the body but is the highest concentrations are in the muscle tissue.

Elevated aldolase can be a sign of muscle or liver damage.

Aldolase may be ordered when you have muscular dystrophy and to assess rare genetic disorders of the skeletal muscles.

High levels may be due to health conditions, including:

  • muscle damage
  • heart attack
  • dermatomyositis
  • polymyositis
  • viral hepatitis
  • leukemia
  • cancers of the liver, pancreas, or prostate
  • gangrene
  • muscular dystrophy

Low levels of aldolase can be seen in people with:

  • fructose intolerance
  • muscle-wasting disease
  • late-stage muscular dystrophy
