Aldolase is an enzyme that helps convert glucose into energy.

Found throughout the body but is primarily found in high levels in muscle tissue.

Elevated levels in the bloodstream with muscle or liver damage or disease.

Has been replaced by other enzyme tests such as CK (creatine kinase), ALT (alanine aminotransferase), and AST (aspartate aminotransferase), which are more specific indicators of muscle or liver damage.

May be used in the monitoring of patients with muscular dystrophy and a few other rare conditions affecting skeletal muscles.
