The raise in the Amylase
is due to the inflammatory process as amylase is very sensitive to stimulus produced by the food, based on the type of the food the quantity of amylase can be expected to raise . The values will stay abnormal until the inflammation in the gland persist , may be the infection has gone completely due to treatment , it will take quite some time for the inflammation to come down. Also in cases of pseudocyst the values can be raised despite of treatment for long , USG abdomen would be the best way to rule it out.
is thought to be more sensitive and specific than serum amylase in the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis
, I would suggest you to evaluate the condition based on lipase values also along with amylase , as both can be little bit mote assuring.
