Lipase: You need a ct scan And to check your cholesterol levels and see if the Lipitor (atorvastatin) is optimal

Not enough info: by itself this number can not tell a doctor if there is a problem. This elevation is not that impressive. If you have concerns, see a surgeon or a GI for further blood work or just a discussion to see if you have any signs of a problem. Once again, lipase alone is not enough
