Elevated Lipase and Triglyceride Levels
Over 1 year ago my GP discovered elevated Triglyceride and Cholesterol Levels of TRIG 453 and Chol 255.  Because I am very fit, don't drink or smoke and eat relatively healthy, he sent me to an Internist.  I've been going to this Internist every 3 months for 1,5 years now to get my blood and stool tested and get an Ultrasound.  About 6 months ago the elevated Lipase count showed up, and that has climbed each test, going from 66 to 99 to more recently 139.  My recent TRIG count was 363 with a total Cholesterol of 236, LDL 124, HDL 40.  I've been taking Digestive Enzymes with every meal for about 5 months, and my stool test showed a SPANK level of 97 (-).  In the fall I had a MRT and they found NO Gallstones, No Tumors, No Blockage of the Pancreatic or Gall ducts.  The most recent Ultrasound also shows NO problems. I also have no symptoms other than occasional Diahrea. My Internist is a bit perplexed.  If I don't have Pancreatitus, No Cancer and NO Gallstones, what could be causing these levels to continually rise??
