Lactate Dehydrogenase (LD) Isoenzymes Blood Test

Item # LC001842

This test is used as a general marker of cell injury from lactic dehydrogenase. This enzyme is found in the majority of the body’s cells and is released into the blood stream when cell damage or the destruction of cells occur.

This test measures the relative percentage of isoenzymes (LD1-5).

Sample Report

Lactate dehydrogenase (LD) is an enzyme that is found in almost all of the body's cells, but only a small amount of it is usually detectable in the blood. LD is released from the cells into the bloodstream when cells are damaged or destroyed. Because of this, the LD test can be used as a general marker of injury to cells.

Although there is some overlap, each of the five LD isoenzymes tends to be concentrated in specific body tissues. In general, the isoenzyme locations are as follows:

  • LD-1: heart, red cells, kidney
  • LD-2: heart, red blood cells, kidney (lesser amounts than LD-1)
  • LD-3: lungs and other tissues
  • LD-4: white blood cells, lymph nodes, muscle, liver (lesser amounts than LD-5)
  • LD-5: liver, skeletal muscle

Instructions

Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
