My LDH (checked weekly) has been elevated for about 4 weeks now. The "high" on the lab's reference range is 618. For the past 4 weeks, it's been 665, 671, 677, and 768. Liver and kidney functions are all normal, and I don't have (and haven't had) an infection or fever. The only information that my doctors can give me is that LDH is an enzyme present in many organs and that an elevated LDH signals inflammation. Well…..I'm kind of concerned and would kind of like to know what in my body is involved! Regarding my relevant meds, I'm 4 months post-ATG (still transfusion-dependent) and take 175 mg cyclosporine 2x/day. I've also been taking 30 mg of Provera for about 3 weeks. Just wondering if anyone has any insight or had a similar experience with LDH during the course of their treatment/recovery. Thank you!
