What is this test?

This test is used to measure the amount of lipase present in your blood. This test is used to identify the presence of any infections/damage to the pancreas of an individual. The pancreas is an internal organ located in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen and plays a role in the digestive and metabolic system of the body.

What is lipase?

Lipase is produced by the pancreas in the body. It is a protein-based enzyme which plays a role in the digestion and breakdown of fats in the stomach. Impaired function of the pancreas due to injury or infections or diseases may lead to increased or decreased release of lipase from the pancreas. Lipase levels can be used to diagnose any disease/condition which may be affecting the function of pancreas.

Why is this test done?

Your doctor may recommend this test if you are experiencing symptoms like nausea, vomiting, severe back or abdominal pain, loss of appetite, etc.

Your doctor may also recommend this test along with other tests to check existing conditions like Diabetes, Obesity, Gall stones, high levels of triglycerides in blood, Kidney disease, Severe or acute or chronic pancreatitis (if diagnosed already), and other diseases or conditions include peritonitis (swelling of layers of inner abdomen), Pancreatic cyst (cyst in pancreas), Crohn’s disease (swelling of the intestines), Cystic Fibrosis (inherited disease which affects internal organs), etc.

Precautions

Use of certain medicines like codeine, birth control pills, food, etc may interfere with your test results, it is recommended to discuss with your doctor/physician for appropriate advice.

Also known as Serum Lipase, Lipase Test.

Test Preparation

Inform your doctor if you are on any medications, have any allergies or underlying medical conditions before your Lipase. Your doctor will give specific instructions depending on your condition on how to prepare for Lipase.

Fasting of 8 hours is usually recommended before this test.

Understanding your test results

If the test results fall in the normal reference range generally no medical intervention is necessary. High levels of lipase in the blood may indicate pancreatitis, kidney diseases, any blockage in the pancreas, gallstones or any problem with your gall balder, etc

Low levels of lipase in the test may indicate damage to the pancreatic tissue, other conditions like cystic fibrosis, etc.

However, if you have higher or lower than normal levels of lipase in blood consult your doctor for further instructions. Based on the test results, your doctor may advise appropriate medical treatments, lifestyle modifications, or further diagnostic tests.
