Description

In the face of anaerobic metabolism lactate is synthesized from pyruvate. Muscle tissue is the predominant source of lactate production.

Increased lactate concentration is a sensitive indication for a significant metabolic disturbance. Possible reasons are hypoxia and hypoperfusion.

Diseases associated with increased lactate concentration are i.e. hypovolemic shock, local hypoperfusion (i.e. intestinal ischaemia in the face of ileus, aortic-thromboembolism), hypoxia, anaemia, or sepsis.
