What is the Amylase test?
Amylase and lipase are the two vital digestive enzymes. Amylase helps our body to break down the starches. Lipase helps our body in digesting fats. An abnormal level of amylase in the body may state a pancreatic disorder. An amylase blood test can determine whether a person has a disease of the pancreas by measuring the amount of amylase in his or her body. A person may have a disorder affecting the pancreas if his or her levels of amylase are too low or too high.

Why is an amylase test ordered?
Amylase is an enzyme released by our pancreas gland. We should diagnose or monitor our pancreas gland on a regular basis. Amylase test is ordered if the doctor suspects a medical condition called pancreatitis which is an inflammation of the pancreas gland.
Amylase is typically measured by testing a blood sample. While in some cases, a urine sample may also be required.
Amylase levels can also rise due to other pancreatic disorders, such as:

  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Pancreatic pseudocyst
  • Pancreatic abscess

Depending upon the person to person the symptoms may vary, but they may include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fever
  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Loss of appetite

How to prepare for the Amylase blood test?
Medical advice for the preparation of Amylase test is as follows: The patient should avoid drinking alcohol before the test. And talking to the doctor about to avoid medications will be beneficial. Certain drugs can affect the test result.
The doctor may suggest the patient not to take some medication.
