An aldolase blood test is a medical test that measures the level of the enzyme aldolase in the blood. Aldolase is an enzyme that is involved in the breakdown of glucose. The test is typically ordered to help diagnose muscle damage or liver disease, or to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for these conditions. The test may be performed on a blood sample taken from a vein in the arm or on a fingerstick sample of capillary blood.
