Hi lovely peeps out there,
I have a question about LDH (Lactate Dehydrogenase) I believe this an enzyme test that is found in almost all body tissues. In my research I found out this plays an important role in cellular respiration, the process by which glucose (sugar) from food is converted into usable energy for our cells. This test is always carried out when I have my regular blood tests for platelets ect. The normal range for LDH is (240-480). my latest result is 758 U/L, classed as high. This test signifies tissue damaged, apparently further testing can be done to find out what body organ is where the damaged tissue is. Up till now I have not had this test. I will ask my Haem next visit.
My question is, is there anything we can do to prevent this tissue damage?
Like others have also mention recently ET seems to effect kidney function, my GFR is low 63 ml/min should be >89. Platelets sitting at 625. <400.
Apart from those results, I am all good!! which I am thankful for.
I have just won a trip to Fiji with my man!! from my local super market which was very good news!!
Regards to all Lyn
