Hydroxybutyrate Dehydrogenase (HBDH)

Hydroxybutyrate Dehydrogenase (HBDH)

HBDH is an enzyme that looks like lactate dehydrogenase 1 (LDH1). This enzyme is found in the brain, heart muscle, kidneys, and red blood cells. It is usually used to find out if someone has had a heart attack, but it can also be used to determine if there is damage to other parts of the body.

This is a better way to tell if you have heart disease than to check your creatine kinase (CPK), oxalacetic transaminase (SGOT / AST), or total lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) levels. After a heart attack, the levels of hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase go up within 8-10 hours. They peak at 48-96 hours later and stay high for 16-18 days.

Why Done? 

The HBDH ALPHA test is done after a heart attack. Its levels rise when there is a heart attack or other problems with the heart.


You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.

No special preparation is needed. A blood sample taken in the morning is usually the best. It should be taken between 8 am and 10 am.
