Ordering Recommendation

Do not use as a stand-alone test. This non-specific test has been replaced by more specific markers for muscle or liver damage. It has largely been replaced by other enzyme tests such as CK, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) as markers of muscle or liver damage.
