    This enzyme is produced in the pancreas; hence its estimation yields information about the functioning of pancreas and also indicative of several pancreatic disorders-acute pancreatitis, importantly. It can also be used to diagnose chronic pancreatitis and other pancreatic disorders. 

Your doctor may recommend this test for you if you show symptoms of a pancreatic disorder. The symptoms include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Severe pain in the abdomen
  • Loss of appetite
  • Recurring Fever

Amylase is one of several enzymes produced by the pancreas in order to facilitate digestion of carbohydrates. This test measures the amount of amylase in the blood or urine or sometimes in peritoneal fluid-fluid present in the abdomen.

Interpretations

A high amylase level in the blood may indicate conditions peculiar to pancreatic disorders.

In acute pancreatitis, amylase in the blood often increases 4 to 6 times higher than the highest reference range. The Ranges usually remain high as long as the infection remains untreated. Then the amylase Ranges will return to normal in a few days.

In chronic pancreatitis, amylase levels initially will be moderately elevated but often reduces over time with progressive pancreas damage. In this case, levels returning to normal may not be indicative of the disorder being resolved. In chronic pancreatitis, the magnitude of amylase levels does not perfectly associate with the severity of the condition.

Amylase levels may also be significantly increased in people with pancreatic duct obstruction and pancreatic cancers.

In general, urine amylase levels rise proportionately with blood amylase levels and stay elevated till for several days after blood levels have reached within a normal range.

An increased level of amylase in peritoneal fluid can occur in acute pancreatitis but may also occur in other abdominal disorders, such as obstructed intestine or decreased blood flow to the intestines (infarct).

A low amylase level in blood and urine in a person with pancreatic disease-specific symptoms may indicate irreversible damage to the amylase-producing cells of the pancreas.

Increased blood amylase levels with normal to low urine amylase levels may show the presence of a macro amylase, a benign complex of amylase and other proteins that accumulates in the blood.
