Aldolase Blood Test
An aldolase blood test looks for damage to muscles, liver or the heart.
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
- viral hepatitis
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 the liver. Aldolase is an enzyme that is an essential component in the process of converting glucose, a sugar form, into energy in your body.
