This blood test measures the level of lipase to check for acute pancreatitis.
Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing this test. Fasting of 8 hours is usually recommended before this test.
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.
Primarily to diagnose and monitor acute pancreatitis.
