What is this test

Aldolase is an enzyme that helps convert glucose into energy. It is found throughout the body but is primarily found in high levels in muscle tissue. Because aldolase levels are elevated in the bloodstream when a person has muscle damage, the aldolase blood test may be ordered to diagnose and monitor certain conditions related to skeletal muscle.
