How could I do an investigation into the effect of pH on the activity of the lipase enzyme?

How could I do an investigation into the effect of pH on the activity of the lipase enzyme?

See below: This is not a health question and it is not clear how much do you know about the chemistry of lipase. You may wish to consult this site to get started.

Lipase (Definition)

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

Substrate name for lipase enzyme?

Substrate name for lipase enzyme?

Olive oil: At least that's what we used for assays when I was doing a lot of clinical chemistry. Today kitmakers sell you "lipase substrate" which the physician need only do quality control on. I suspect it's olive oil. ...Read more

Why is my husbands lipase 450 and amylase 250 so high. They said he has cirrossis of the liver. Those are pancreatic enzyme's.

Why is my husbands lipase 450 and amylase 250 so high. They said he has cirrossis of the liver. Those are pancreatic enzyme's.

I'm sorry: Elevated lipase and amylase can result from ongoing damage to the pancreas from alcohol -- perhaps refluxing up a damaged duct, or he may have a cystic fibrosis variant, a hereditary pancreatitis, or any of several other entities. Few diseases truly involve only one organ, and he may have more than one thing going on. This sounds serious and I am glad he has you to care for & love him. ...Read more

I have gerd, 4 small gastric ulcers, & gastritis. Lipase enzymes mildly over limit, amylase levels are fine. What could this be from?

I have gerd, 4 small gastric ulcers, & gastritis. Lipase enzymes mildly over limit, amylase levels are fine. What could this be from?

Excessive acid: There could be a medical condition causing too much acidity (zollinger-ellison) syndrome, or it could be from an h. Pylorii infection. Please discuss further with your GI doc since further testing is available to figure this out. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can pancreatic enzymes with protease, amylase and lipase hurt or help cancer?

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 more

Are enzyme tablets effective for improving digestion? (e.g. amylase 120mg, protease 70mg, lipase 58mg, bromelain 100mg, etc) When should they be used?

Are enzyme tablets effective for improving digestion? (e.g. amylase 120mg, protease 70mg, lipase 58mg, bromelain 100mg, etc) When should they be used?

Are you deficient?: Some folks have pancreatic lesions and cannot digest their food without supplemental enzymes. This is a common problem in kids with cystic fibrosis. For most folks, it's a complete waste of money -- like wearing glasses if you don't need them. ...Read more

Can pristiq (desvenlafaxine) cause low blood sugar of 64 in a patient with stage 3 CKD & elevated amylase and lipase enzymes. No diagnosis of pancreatitis from mayo.

Can pristiq (desvenlafaxine) cause low blood sugar of 64 in a patient with stage 3 CKD & elevated amylase and lipase enzymes. No diagnosis of pancreatitis from mayo.

Very unlikely: Up until october of 2013 there have only been 7 cases of hypoglycemia reported to the fda regarding Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) out of hundreds of thousands of prescriptions that have been written. Also, 64 is not technically low blood sugar.It must be below 50, and some specialists would use 40 aat a hypoglycemic cut-off. ...Read more

Mom has jaundice w elevated liver enzymes, and elevated amylase and lipase. Ct w contrast was done, no tumors seen. Could this be pancreatic cancer?

Mom has jaundice w elevated liver enzymes, and elevated amylase and lipase. Ct w contrast was done, no tumors seen. Could this be pancreatic cancer?

It is unclear: Hi kitten40047. The jaundice and elevated enzymes are concerning. It is reassuring to hear that the ct was negative. There may be other reasons for her symptoms. However, in the absence of any other explanation for the symptoms she has, you may want to have mom undergo additional tests, including perhaps MRI or endoscopy, which may shed more light on the pancreatic and liver areas. ...Read more

What is considered to be a "normal lipase level" and what can you do to naturally increase it?

Where?: Lipase is usually measured in serum and it should be less than 160. It is secreted by pancreas and is normal constituent of intestine. There is no need to try to increase your serum level of lipase. If you have pancreatic deficiency, oral supplements are available, but you should discuss that with your doctor. See this site for more info.

What kind of food can I eat if I have Polycystic kidney disease and Cyst on the Pancrea? And I previously had a Pancreatitis with a lipase of 16, 000.

What kind of food can I eat if I have Polycystic kidney disease and Cyst on the Pancrea? And I previously had a Pancreatitis with a lipase of 16, 000.

Diet is not key: This is a lifetime challenge, but you can eat whatever you like without expecting specific benefits or harms. As your kidneys fail later in life, restrictions will become more important. I hope you will be able to get a transplant. ...Read more

Had ERCP w/stent placed & open choly next day. Now weird spasms in stomach w/food & continued elevation of AST, ALT, lipase. Stent out soon. Any ideas?

Continue monitoring: This could be transient after an episode of cholecystitis. Continue monitoring liver enzymes and lipase levels as long as there is no fever, jaundice or vomiting. Do the same after stent removal. Use a low fat diet and plenty of fluids, and avoid alcohol.
If symptoms worsen, you will need imaging studies such as CT scan or ultrasound. ...Read more

Why does serum lipase and amylase increase during acute pancreatitis? Shouldn't it decrease since there is problem with pancreas (inflammation)?

Lipase serum levels: I believe the reasons both rise in the bloodstream is because there is disruption of the pancrease (pancrelipase) and these enzymes get into the blood stream. They are both part of the exocrine function and should not be in the blood steam. The endocrine portion of the organ involves insulin production. This chemical is supposed to be in the blood. The other are designed to be released into the duodenum. ...Read more

Any indication to do a contrast abdominal CT in a patient with marginally increased lipase levels probably caused by elevated triglycerides?

Not enough info.: Generally, a contrasted CT would not be necessary in this instance, but more information about the symptoms, other lab values, such as amylase and white blood count, and the results of a physical exam could change that recommendation. If your lipase is elevated, follow through with your doctor's advice. Good luck. ...Read more

Lipase is normal amylase is 15 points higher. Should I be concerned? What do each mean? I'm worried.

Pancreatic Enzymes: Amylase and lipase are enzymes produced by the Pancreas which lies in the upper middle part of abdomen. These enzymes are used in digestion. Amylase converts carbohydrates to glucose and lipase converts lipids to fatty acid. They can get elevated when pancreas is inflamed due to any cause. Your Amylasd is slightly elevated and your doctor must suspected Pancreatitis. Discuss with your doctor about it ...Read more
