i am concerned about my health, i have a high lipase level of 129 and a normal amylase with normal lipid levels. what could these mean?

Usually pancreatitis: High lipase levels are generally associated with pancreatitis and other problems with the pancreas. Inflammation of the gall bladder, kidney failure and stomach problems are among other problems associated with hyperlipasemia. I strongly encourage you to have a complete exam at a medical clinic as soon as possible. You should be properly diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.
