Lactate Blood Test - More Information

The lactic acid test, also known as a lactate test, measures the lactic acid blood level.

Lactic acid (lactate) is a biomarker released during states of high energy demand, particularly ones use anaerobic metabolism. Lactate helps regenerate energy cycles and, during periods of intensive activity, lactic acid blood levels rise as much as ten times the normal amount as the body cannot process lactic acid fast enough. Blood testing for lactate levels is sometimes performed to help evaluate one's acid-base status.
