Can someone have pancreatitis with no pain? I have elevated amylase serum at 206 and lipase enzymes at 898
Got a blood test @ Labcorp,
Amylase, serum. 108( 31-124 range)
Lipase, serum. 75( 0-59)
Do I have liver or Pancreas problem?
Unlikely: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, based on the data you provided, there is no reason to suspect liver or pancreas problems. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
