Also Known As

Lipase, LPS, Serum Lipase

The Purpose of a Lipase Test

Your body produces lipase to digest and process fats. But abnormally high or low levels can signal a problem with your pancreas, where most lipase is released. Among the conditions that may call for lipase blood work:

Lipase (606)

What Does the Lipase Lab Test Measure?

With this blood test, lipase levels are measured to ensure they fall within normal ranges.

Who Should Take Lipase Labs?

You may want to take a test if you are suffering unexplained symptoms such as:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Racing heart rate
  • Swelling in the stomach area
  • Diarrhea

Lipase Blood Work Preparation

No special preparation is necessary for the lipase test, although your doctor may recommend fasting in the 8-12 hours before your test. Check with your lab if you have any questions.

Lipase Blood Test Results

Ideal lipase levels don’t go higher than 160 units per liter (U/L). You may need further testing if your results come back at an undesirable level. If you want to know more about what your results mean for your health and well-being, we can help. Book a telehealth visit with one of our board-certified physicians to review your results and discuss the next steps.
