Acute Pancreatitis Panel

FAQ

  1. What is acute pancreatitis?

    Acute pancreatitis is a life-threatening disease characterized by inflammation of the pancreas. Acute pancreatitis can result in:

    • Mild to severe abdominal pain and vomiting
    • Elevated blood pressure
    • Rapid heart rate
    • Dilated blood vessels

    When left untreated, acute pancreatitis causes scarring within the pancreas that can permanently impair its function. For these reasons, it is important to recognize its signs and symptoms and take immediate action to seek treatment.

  2. Which biomarkers will trend upward in acute pancreatitis?

    Due to inflammation, secretions of pancreatic enzymes into the bloodstream become exaggerated, resulting in increased serum amylase and lipase levels.

    Amylase is an enzyme responsible for digesting starch into simple sugars, and lipases are responsible for digesting fats. Increased levels of these enzymes may indicate damage to the pancreas, which can suggest acute pancreatitis.

  3. What test confirms acute pancreatitis?

    The most common tests that confirm acute pancreatitis are the serum amylase and lipase tests. These tests can confirm whether a patient exhibits any damage to their pancreas. The higher the levels, the greater the severity of the inflammation.

  4. Do I need to visit a doctor?

    No doctor visit needed.

  5. How do I get my results?

    You get your results via email as soon as they are available.
