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.
