Description

Lactate or Lactic acid is the end product of anaerobic carbohydrate metabolism. The test is ordered to determine if someone has lactic acidosis, a condition where high amounts of lactic acid are produced and the acid base balance is disturbed. It occurs mainly due to a lack of adequate oxygen in cells and tissues. It may also be ordered in other cases of acidosis to help in differential diagnosis.
