  • Information

Lipase

Lipase is an enzyme that is produced in the pancreas. It helps to break down fats in the digestive process. Lipase levels can be measured easily with our home lipase finger-prick blood test. If your lipase levels are high, it may signify pancreatitis or another medical condition. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Pancreatitis is a medical condition that occurs when the pancreas becomes inflamed. It can be caused by alcohol abuse, certain medications, or other medical conditions. Symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. If pancreatitis is severe, it can lead to life-threatening complications. Treatment includes hospitalisation, pain relief, and rest.

Symptoms

Symptoms of pancreas disease are associated with lipase abnormalities. 

Symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Headaches
  • Issues with bowel movements (diarrhoea)
  • Abdominal pain
  • Lower back pressure/ pain
  • Night sweats

Additional Information

A high level of lipase can indicate a problem with the pancreas or liver. A low level of lipase can indicate a problem with the stomach or intestines.


A lipase blood test is usually ordered if someone has symptoms that suggest they may have a problem with their pancreas or liver, such as:

-Abdominal pain

-Nausea and vomiting

-Loss of appetite

-Fatigue

-Jaundice (yellowing of the skin)


The lipase blood test is also sometimes ordered to help diagnose a problem with the stomach or intestines, such as:

-Acid reflux

-Ulcers

-Crohn's disease

-Celiac disease


The lipase blood test is a simple, painless test that can help doctors determine the cause of someone's symptoms.

Why take the test?

It is important to check the health of your pancreas, especially if you have a lifestyle that involved heavy alcohol abuse. It is also important to check the functioning of your Lipase if there is a family history of chronic pancreatitis. 

bg
50%
of cases are caused by gallstones
According to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), acute pancreatitis is a common cause of acute abdominal pain. There are about 56 cases per 100,000 people per year in the UK. 25% of these cases are caused by alcohol and another 25% by other factors.
bg
75%
of chronic pancreatitis cases in Western Europe are due to alcohol consumption
According to NICE, cigarette smoking and alcohol usage had been found to be strongly associated with chronic pancreatitis and will exacerbate the condition. In 5% of cases, a hereditary factor is the cause, other causes include: hypercalcaemia, hyperlipidaemia or autoimmune disease.

Experts Opinion on Lipase Home Tests

"A lipase test is done to detect whether there is any problem with the pancreas. Pancreatic lipase is analysed to look at diseases such as Crohn's disease, cystic fibrosis or celiac disease."
