Liver disease, other: My best interpretation of your question is that your blood tests show abnormally high levels of enzymes that are mostly associated with the liver. This suggests damage to liver cells with leakage of these enzymes to the blood. This may be hepatitis, a toxic problem, or even potentially a tumor. Some of these enzymes may come from other cells, so depending on which it might be muscle disease. ...Read more
Hello, my son is 2.9 years old, his liver test results high level of LDH which is (H)286. what could be cause of this?
Not from liver: Young children higher levels normally than older and adults, and labs may not give normal levels for age group. The higher levels in children are due to the much higher rates of bone growth. If the liver is sick LDH will be higher, with elevation of two liver-specific enzymes, of which you would have been informed, so they were normal, excluding liver disease. In short, this is a normal level for your son ...Read more
