Frequently Asked Questions About Lipase Test
A lipase test is also referred to as the Serum Lipase test or LPS. A lipase test is a simple blood test that measures the amount of lipase protein in your blood. Pancreas, a large and flat gland found between your stomach and spine secrets an enzyme called Lipase which helps the intestines to break down the fats you intake. This test helps to detect the problems in the pancreas.
Sometimes your doctor may ask you to take a lipase test along with the Amylase test. Amylase is also an enzyme secreted by your pancreas and other salivary glands.
Who should take a Lipase test?
Your doctor may recommend you to take a Lipase test if he suspects that you might have acute pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas which causes the following symptoms
- Abdominal and back pain
- Loss of appetite
- Stomach upset
- Weight loss
- Oily or fatty stools
Why is a Lipase test done?
A lipase test is done to monitor the levels of lipase in the blood. It also detects the following
- Peritonitis (inflammation of the inner abdominal wall)
- A bowel that has a restricted blood supply
- Pancreatic cyst
- Cystic Fibrosis (Genetic disorder where mucus damages the pancreas and other organs)
- Crohn’s Disease (inflammation of the digestive tract)
- Celiac Disease (Autoimmune disorder which damages the small intestine)
How should I prepare for the Lipase test?
The lipase test does not require any special preparation. You can have a normal diet and wear a comfortable dress. But in some cases, your doctor may ask you to intake water only and fast for 8 to 12 hours before the test. It is advisable to inform your doctor about your medications before taking the test.
What happens in a Lipase test?
A lipase test is similar to a normal blood test which is done with the blood sample. The healthcare professional will put a tight band on your upper arm to identify the veins easily.
He will clean the skin with disinfectant liquid. He will then insert a needle into one of your veins to draw enough blood in a tube and removes the band. The blood is then sent to the laboratory to process the result.
It usually takes only a few minutes to take a Lipase test.
Side-effects of Lipase test
As it is a blood test, there are no complications or any risk in this test. Some people may faint after the test and feel pain and swelling in the injected area. So it is better to take rest after giving the blood sample.
What can I expect from the test result?
The lipase test determines the levels of lipase in your blood. Normal lipase levels vary based on the labs. If the lipase levels are higher than normal, then you may face the problem in the flow of lipase from your pancreas. The blockage in the flow of lipase may cause
- Pancreatic cancer
- Bowel obstruction
Lower lipase levels may cause Cystic Fibrosis or Chronic Pancreatitis. Lipase test helps your doctor in further diagnosis and he may prescribe you some medications, surgeries, or some additional tests.
