Lipase: Laboratory data without a full clinical picture is often useless. Nonetheless, lipase elevations often occur with a pancreatic inflammation, and this can be from within or extrinsic to the pancreas. There are, however, several other possibilities and you should be seen by a gastroenterologist.
