Should i be concerned if my blood test ldh is 308(103--227) it is elevated.What does it mean?

Many possibilities: The website given below provides a list of causes of elevated ldh. However, it may be elevated if you exercised before the blood test.

LDH total- 153. LD1- 32, LD2-30, LD3, 20, LD4- 8, LD5- 10. Are these results normal? Is the LD1&LD2 ratio abnormal?

Historic test: Matthew, the LDH isoenzyme test is ancient history, almost never ordered nowadays. And your LDH is normal.

No: LDH can go up with muscle activity. This one reading is no cause for alarm. Next time you need to see a doctor, you may get it retested.
