If it was from alcohol you could drink (no one can physically stop you) but you will be putting yourself at risk for future attacks and the nest time it might not be a mild attack. ...Read more
Could drinking the day of a blood test cause slightly elevated lipase levels? Do not drink heavily and never had acute pancreatitis.
I think so: I think that if you've never had this problem before, and you had been drinking that same day before the test, then it's certainly possible the alcohol caused an acutely elevated lipase level. If you drink on a daily basis, though, it's also possible that irbid always a little elevated. Maybe repeat the lipase lab when not drinking to check, ok? ...Read more

My dad was admitted with acute pancreatitis. Alcoholic pancreatitis. He received 2 blood transfusions. He refuses to quit drinking. What will happen?
Potentially can die: Your father is unfortunately in a very tenuous situation. If he has received blood transfusions, I would assume his liver has been compromised and is failing, the lining of his esophagus (food pipe) and stomach being irritated and inflamed and is at risk for bleeding/ ulcers. Your father has to stop drinking now or he will endure a host of complications that will lead to his death. Talk to his doc ...Read more
