The cellular reactions caused by chronic hyperglycemia are nonenzymatic glycation, activation of the signal transduction pathway increasing DAG synthesis, increased ROS synthesis as the waste product of energy catabolism leading to cell and tissue oxidative stress, and activation of aldolase reductase.
The three genetically known types of PH are PH1, which is caused by a mutation in the AGXT gene, causing a deficiency of the enzyme alanine: glyoxylate-aminotransferase, PH2, which is caused by a mutation in the GRHPR gene, causing a deficiency of the enzyme glyoxylate/hydroxypyruvate reductase (GR/HPR), and PH3, which is caused by a mutation in the HOGA1 gene, causing a deficiency of the enzyme 4-hydroxy-2-oxoglutarate aldolase.
It was reported in goats that lithium-poor nutrition decreased feed intake in growing youngones, lower birth weight of kids, lesser conception rate, increased abortion rates, delivery of more female kids, decreased milk production, life expectancy and serum enzyme activity (isocitric acid dehydrogenase, malate dehydrogenase, aldolase, and glutamine dehydrogenase), except stress indicator enzyme (creatinine kinase), and skin lesions (Anke et al., 1983, 1991; Mueller et al., 2010).

The presence of a positive aldolase dosage (aldolase above the upper limit of normal) and increasing age were associated with worse survival, whereas high antinuclear antibody titers (1:1280 or higher) were associated with improved survival.
Muscle enzymes were elevated (creatinine kinases [CK] of 309 IU/L and aldolase of 12.8 IU/L), and there was an increase in acute phase reactants, with an ESR of 34 mm/h, PCR of 4.09 mg/dL, and ferritin of 614 ng/mL There was also an increase in hepatic enzymes (GOT 694 IU/L, GPT 1044 IU/L, FA 130 IU/L).
