In brief: Workup

If available, get a proper genetic workup even if no one else in the family is affected.
If your amylase is high but lipase normal and there is nothing on imaging pointing to the pancreas, this may be macroamylasemia. If the pancreatitis is real, checking the cystic fibrosis and trypsinogen loci is indicated. This may be one piece in the puzzle. Be persistent.
