Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH)

Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) Test

Blood levels of the enzyme lactate dehydrogenase are measured by performing an LDH test, which is short for Serum Lactate Dehydrogenase. The heart, liver, muscles, and kidneys have the highest concentrations of this enzyme, found in almost all of the body's cells. Following a traumatic event, it is released into the bloodstream due to tissue damage.

Lactate dehydrogenase is an enzyme that helps convert glucose into energy. Heart, lungs, muscles, liver, kidney, and blood cells all contain large quantities. The enzyme is usually found in modest amounts in serum outside blood cells. However, when cells are damaged, lactate dehydrogenase is released into the serum, where it accumulates. Thus, the Serum Lactate Dehydrogenase Test is a nonspecific test that helps identify disorders that cause tissue damage. More tests are run to pinpoint the source and location of these issues.

Why done? 

Perform the Serum Lactate Dehydrogenase (SLD):

  • Analyze tissue damage for the existence and extent.
  • To identify disorders that worsen over time, such as anaemia and severe infections.
  • To keep tabs on the progression of liver and kidney disease and the effectiveness of treatment.
  • To aid in diagnosing and monitoring some diseases, such as lymphoma and leukaemia.


You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.
