I had blood work done in February -my amylase was 170 then 3 weeks later it was 179, the last time March 31 the level is now 189, lipase level is 59. My doctor did a cat scan to rule out pancreatis which he did. I have no gall bladder, and liver is fine. I have no pain so he said he isn't concern with the levels and he would recheck them in 3 months. I thought blood work is done to alert doctors to a problem. High how does my level need to get before they are concern?
