A healthy result should fall into the range 23 - 160 U/L.

When we eat, our pancreas releases an enzyme called lipase into our digestive tract to help the intestines break down fats in the food we’ve eaten. Lipase also aids the movements of nutrients and waste through the walls of the cells in our bodies. An optimal level of lipase is needed to maintain normal digestive and cell function; although, abnormally high levels of lipase in the blood can be an indicator of a health problem. A lipase test is frequently ordered in tandem with an amylase test to diagnose and monitor several conditions, including:

            -Acute / chronic pancreatitis

            -Celiac disease

            -Crohn’s disease

            -Cystic fibrosis

            -Pancreatic cancer

Some symptoms of pancreatic dysfunction include:

            -Severe abdominal or back pain

            -Fever

            -Loss of appetite

            -Nausea

It is worth noting that pregnant women will have a skewed lipase blood test.
