Have had lipase levels checked with routine bloodwork. It fluctuates each time it's taken - is it normal for serum lipase to fluctuate day to day?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Not unusual

It is not unusual for a serum lipase level to fluctuate daily.
It is only of any concern if it is greatly elevated and agrees with the clinical presentation of pancreatitis. Otherwise, I would not worry about it. Good luck.
