A lipase test measures the amount of lipase in the blood, an enzyme produced by the pancreas that aids in the breakdown of fats in the small intestine. Lipase levels that are elevated may point to a pancreatic issue, such as acute or chronic pancreatitis, or a blockage in the ducts that transport pancreatic enzymes to the small intestine. To assist identify and track pancreatic problems, an amylase test and a lipase test are frequently requested. A small amount of blood is drawn from an arm vein to perform the easy, non-invasive test. Typically, the findings are available in a few hours.

Frequently asked questions

The lipase test quantifies the level of the lipase enzyme in the blood. The pancreas
produces lipase, which aids in the digestion of fats in the small intestine.

You can get back to your regular activities after the exam. In the meantime, wait for the
results and adhere to any further recommendations that your doctor may give you. You can
be referred to a specialist for additional evaluation if any abnormal results come back.

Anyone with pancreatic disease symptoms or a history of pancreatitis or other pancreatic
illnesses may request a lipase test. Additionally, it may be requested as a component of a
comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP), as part of a patient's evaluation for abdominal
pain, or as part of a general health examination, particularly in people who have risk factors
for pancreatitis like excessive alcohol consumption, gallstones, or a family history of
pancreatic disorders.

A lipase test normally does not require any extra preparation. You can eat and drink
normally before the test, but it is crucial to let your doctor know about any drugs you are
taking right now because some of them can alter how the test turns out.
