If you do not have your lab report, consult your healthcare provider or the laboratory that performed the test(s) to obtain the reference range. Laboratory test results are not meaningful by themselves. When someone is being treated for lactic acidosis or hypoxia, decreasing concentrations of lactate over time reflect a response to treatment. When someone has signs and symptoms of meningitis, significantly increased cerebrospinal fluid lactate levels suggest bacterial meningitis while normal or slightly elevated levels are more likely to be due to viral meningitis. The mitochondria use glucose and oxygen to produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the body's primary source of energy. Whenever cellular oxygen levels decrease and/or the mitochondria are not functioning properly, the body must turn to less efficient energy production to metabolize glucose and produce ATP. This is called anaerobic energy production and the primary byproduct is lactic acid, which is processed (metabolized) by the liver. Sources Used in Current Review (October 9, 2017) Lactic Acid.

Occasionally, a sample of cerebrospinal fluid is collected from the spinal column during a procedure called a spinal tap. To detect high levels of lactate in the blood, which may be an indication of lack of oxygen (hypoxia) or the presence of other conditions that cause excess production or insufficient clearing of lactate from the blood; this test is not meant to be used for screening for health status.
