Hemolysis is known to be the destruction of the RBC of the blood. When this occurs, test results would show an elevated LDH which means that the correct answer is D. LDH is also known as Lactate Dehydrogenase. This is a type of analyte that is found in small quantities when the blood is tested. When the results are high, this may signify that there is tissue damage somewhere.

This may prompt the physician in order more tests to determine what the cause is of the abnormally high LDH levels. Some levels will indicate what organ tissue is specifically damaged. For those with cancer, a high LDH means that prognosis is going to be poor.
