Biochemistry

Pyruvate is a molecule formed during glucose metabolism and plays a crucial role in cellular energy production. The pyruvate test at IntroLab is used to evaluate metabolism and body function in specific medical situations.

When is the pyruvate test indicated?

This test is often indicated when there is a suspicion of tissue hypoxia, which can be linked to neuromuscular disorders. Low pyruvate levels may indicate a reduced ability of tissues to use oxygen efficiently, which can be due to conditions such as muscular dystrophies, mitochondrial disorders, and other neuromuscular issues. This test provides additional information about the energy status of tissues and aids in diagnosis.

In sports medicine, the pyruvate test can be beneficial. Physical stress from exercise can alter glucose metabolism, leading to increased pyruvate levels. Monitoring these levels can help assess the body’s energy requirements during intense physical activity and optimize training.

In some cases, a lactate test may be recommended instead of a pyruvate test. Lactate is more stable and can offer more precise information about glucose metabolism and tissue hypoxia. However, the test remains useful in specific situations based on patient needs. Your doctor will provide detailed information on the indications for the test and specific guidelines for preparation.
