AldolaseBlood Test

The aldolase blood test is a medical test that measures the levels of aldolase enzyme in the blood. Aldolase is an enzyme found in various tissues, including muscle, liver, and brain. The aldolase blood test is usually ordered by a healthcare provider to diagnose and monitor the progression of certain medical conditions that affect these tissues, such as muscle diseases, liver diseases, and some autoimmune diseases.

For example, high levels of aldolase in the blood may indicate muscle damage or disease, such as muscular dystrophy or polymyositis. Additionally, elevated aldolase levels can also be associated with liver damage or disease, such as hepatitis or cirrhosis.

To perform the aldolase blood test, a healthcare provider will collect a small sample of blood from a vein in the arm, using a needle and syringe. The sample is then sent to a laboratory for analysis. The results of the test may take a few days to be available. The normal range for aldolase levels can vary depending on the laboratory, the person’s age and sex, and other factors. Therefore, it is important to discuss the results of the test with a healthcare provider.
