High Lipase

My Lipase is 786, my Bun is 23, my Alt (SGPT) is 53.  Should I be worried?  Dr is re-checking my tests in 1 week.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

High lipase levels are seen in conditions like pancreatitis, gall bladder disorders, peptic ulcer disease and sometimes in renal disorders. You can have a high lipase level even when you do not have any problems with your pancreas. A test for amylase, another enzyme produced by the pancreas, is often done at the same time as a test for lipase. Measuring both amylase and lipase sometimes can help determine the cause of a high amylase level.

Retesting and an ultrasonography may help to diagnose the cause.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
