Understanding Lipase in Bangalore

What is Lipase in Bangalore?

The Lipase test is used to evaluate the levels of lipase enzyme (a type of digestive enzyme that helps your body to digest fat) made by the pancreas. It is available at an affordable price in Bangalore with Tata 1mg Labs. The Lipase test is important to diagnose pancreas-related disorders such as pancreatitis (inflammation in the pancreas), blockages, and pancreas-associated chronic diseases. You may need the Lipase test if you experience upper abdominal pain radiating to the back, abdominal tenderness, nausea, pale stool, bloating, jaundice, rapid pulse, and fever.

A high lipase level may suggest pancreatic conditions like blocked duct, pancreatic cancer, peptic ulcer, or gallbladder disease. Conversely, a low lipase level may indicate permanent damage to pancreatic cells, often seen in chronic diseases like cystic fibrosis. Additionally, your doctor may request this test to evaluate treatment response. No special preparation is required for a lipase test, and you can maintain your regular eating and drinking routine.

What does Lipase measure?

The Lipase test measures the total amount of lipase enzyme present in the blood. The lipase enzyme breaks down fats (lipids) into smaller molecules. In the gut, it is crucial for digestion, transportation, and the usage of dietary fats and oils. The main source of lipase is the pancreas–the same gland that makes insulin. After a meal, your pancreas releases pancreatic lipase into your digestive tract, where it breaks down triglycerides from fats and oils into smaller molecules like monoglycerides and fatty acids that are easier to absorb. A deranged level of lipase may indicate disease affecting the pancreas.

Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Lipase in Bangalore

Frequently Asked Questions about Lipase in Bangalore

Q. When can the Lipase test be done?

The Lipase test can be done when you experience symptoms of a pancreatic disorder, such as severe abdominal pain, fever, loss of appetite, or nausea. It is also used to monitor the treatment response of pancreatitis.

Q. Is there any risk associated with the serum lipase test?

There is usually no risk associated with this test. However, some people may feel a slight sting when a needle is pricked and may also experience some bleeding, which is normal and usually not bothersome. Rarely, some people may also experience slight swelling or bruising at the site of the needle prick. Applying ice 3-4 times a day for about a week may help reduce swelling and bruising. If it does not get better, consult your doctor.

Q. What is pancreatitis and its symptoms?

Pancreatitis refers to the inflammation of the pancreas. The symptoms of pancreatitis include abdominal pain that radiates to your back, abdominal pain that feels worse after eating, indigestion, fat in stool, nausea or vomiting, loss of appetite, fast heart rate, weight loss, etc.

Q. What are the long-term consequences of pancreatitis?

Generally, acute pancreatitis does not cause any long-term damage. However, chronic pancreatitis may follow a series of acute attacks but is almost always due to many years of alcohol abuse (although other conditions such as cystic fibrosis can also damage the pancreas). It causes permanent pancreatic damage with scarring and calcium deposits. In some people, pancreatitis may lead to the development of insulin-dependent diabetes.

Q. What are the other conditions that can elevate lipase levels?

Lipase levels are usually elevated in case of pancreatitis. But its levels may also be increased in conditions like kidney failure, cirrhosis, or a bowel problem.

Q. What does it mean when my lipase levels are higher than normal?

Higher-than-normal levels of lipase in the blood may suggest acute pancreatitis, chronic kidney disease, peptic ulcer, gallbladder disease, intestinal problems like intestinal blocking, bowel obstruction, diabetes, or alcohol use disorder.

Q. How can I lower my lipase levels?

To lower the lipase levels, you need to work with your doctor and address the underlying issue triggering the lipase increase. However, adopting some healthy habits, such as avoiding alcohol, staying hydrated, and trying to cut off fat from your diet, may help to control its levels.

Q. What additional tests can be prescribed by the doctor in case test results show abnormal lipase levels?

Additional tests that may be prescribed in case of abnormal lipase test results are amylase test, abdominal imaging tests (CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, or MR cholangiopancreatography), liver function test, kidney function test, and blood sugar test.
