Aldolase Test

The aldolase test is a diagnostic tool that measures the amount of aldolase enzyme in your blood. This test is often used to evaluate muscle health and liver functionality, as aldolase is predominantly found in these tissues. Elevated levels of aldolase can be indicative of muscle damage or liver disease.

  • Test Name Aldolase Test
  • Sample Type Blood
  • Preparations Required No specific instructions. Normal blood sample collection procedures should be followed.
  • Report Time 2 days

Aldolase is an enzyme involved in the process of glycolysis, the metabolic pathway that converts glucose into pyruvate. This enzyme is present throughout the body, but its highest concentrations are in muscle tissues and the liver. When these tissues are damaged or diseased, aldolase can leak into the bloodstream, causing an increase in blood aldolase levels.
