So why is an aldolase blood test important?  Well, elevated aldolase may be caused by health conditions, including:

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

Low aldolase levels can be seen in people with:

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

Aldolase can be found in the entire body. The highest concentrations are located in the skeletal muscle and in the liver. Aldolase is an enzyme which is an essential component in the process of converting glucose, a sugar form, into energy in your body.
