I have an elevated lipase test. 300 is the limit mine was 365. I'm very scared of pancreatitis and chronic pancreatitis. I have no symptoms at all. I felt great actually.what can cause this elevated lipase? I keep hearing it can be somthing serious and I'm very afraid.i also hear that an ultrasound cannot dect problems with the pancrease and I recently took an ultrasound because of my abnormal bloodwork. Could this just be how my make up is? Or am I doomed to have pancreatitis?as I said before I have never had any symptoms before I took the test at my yearly physical. They referred me to a gastro doc but I'm still extremely concerned to the point that afraid to eat and constantly paranoid of having the attacks that I hear you get with pancreTitis. Help please!
