R74.0: Elevation of levels of transaminase and lactic acid dehydrogenase [LDH]

The amount of certain proteins in your blood has changed.

In the body, certain proteins ensure that processes are better or faster. These proteins are also called enzymes.

An increased number of enzymes that are found in the liver were detected in your blood. This can be an indication of a change to the liver or that it is diseased, for example.

The liver is an important organ on the top right of the abdomen. For example, it helps with blood clotting and detoxifying the body. Nutrients from food are processed in the liver.
