LDH

What is LDH?
Avatar n tn
Hi.
Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is an enzyme that is found in the body.  It catalyzes the conversion of lactate to pyruvate and vise versa.  
Elevated LDH levels can be caused by a variety of benign and malignant conditions.  Diseases known to cause an elevation of the LDH level include non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, testicular cancer, leukemias, heart failure, and hypothyroidism.  
Hope this helps.
