Lipase Protease And Amylase Side Effects
Health fraud: Giving the pancreatic enzymes that help in pancreatic insufficiency (cystic fibrosis, chronic pancreatic scarring) as a cancer treatment is a cynical, cruel fraud. It's often packaged with "detoxification" and coffee enemas. Don't pay money to the people who've tried to deceive you on the thought "what if it did work?". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lipases, such as lipoprotein lipase and endothelial lipase, are enzymes that breakdown circulating triglycerides (tg). Specifically, lipases degrade tg rich lipoproteins including chylomicrons, very low density lipoprotein (vldl) and remnant particles produced by breakdown of chylomicron and vldl particles. Decreased lipase function leads to accumulation of ...Read more
R digestive enzymes good? Do they actually work with probiotics too? Enzymes such as amylase protease's lipase bromelain cellulase papaya etc. Safe?
Digestive enzymes : are good especially if you lack your own digestive enzymes and there is no long term harm. ...Read more
My Lipase and Amylase are elevated. 69 for Lipase and 359 for Amylase. Ultrasound normal. I have had IBS and have pressure on right side below wais?
Acute tests: A 1998 study found that 100% of patients with acute pancreatitis had an elevated lipase, and 95% had an elevated amylase directly upon admission to the hospital. As their hospitalization continued, those values dropped off and so the tests would be less useful for diagnosis. ...Read more

What procedure or what next should i do if my Lipase is elevated to 65 and amylase is high as well exray shows pancreas swollen?
I was informed by my doc that high lipase and a normal-ranged amylase together is insignificant(=nothing wrong). So having high lipase is fine?
It depends: How do you FEEL? Lipase is a test fraught with pitfalls in its performance, and reference ranges are set for most lab tests so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end. If you have serious abdominal pain and a lesion in your pancreas, I'd worry that your low amylase is an error. If you feel well, I'd forget the lipase. ...Read more
Can be pancreas infl: Amylase: enzyme made by pancreas and salivary glands. Elevation can be seen with pancreatitis, mumps, vomiting/bulimia sometimes with other GI (gallbladder, ulcer), gyn issues. Lipase is a somewhat more specific pancreatic enzyme. Mild elevations non specific, very high more specific marker of pancreatic inflammation. Kidney disease screws up the values. Incr. In cystic fibrosis, celiac, . ...Read more
