Why is this test important?
This enzyme test can detect the presence of pancreatic disease. Lipase is an enzyme in the pancreas used in digestion to break down fats into fatty acids. Elevated levels may indicate acute or chronic pancreatitis, or another pancreatic disease. Elevated lipase levels may also signify other conditions such as kidney disease , bowel obstruction or celiac disease but, are usually specific to pancreatic conditions. Lipase is often tested along with amylase levels to diagnose acute and chronic pancreatitis.
