  • In infants: 100-250 units/L
  • In children: 60-170 units/L
  • In adults: 100-190 units/L

LDH levels that are lower than the normal range are not generally considered as a problem. Higher LDH levels may mean that the patient has an infection in the central nervous system. In these cases, the doctor may suggest more tests to point-out exactly where the damage is. These tests are ALT, AST or ALP tests.
Extremely high LDH level may indicate multiple organ failure.
