Hi XXXX! Good evening. I am Dr Shareef answering your query.

Although the serum amylase is increased in the report attached, it is not very high to deduce anything. I would like to know what your symptoms were before hand and what led you to the doctor. Also do you consume alcohol and smoke ? These informations would be helpful in planning your management. Waiting for your reply.

Brief Answer:
Not of much worry at this level.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX! Good evening. My regrets for the delay, as I was busy in the hospital.

As I told you this level of Amylase is not very high to relate it to your condition. However, I would advise you to get the test repeated along with serum lipase which is more specific. Till then, I would advise you to avoid eating from outside if you do. Your LFT is also normal as seen in the report. I would in addition advise you for a blood urea and serum creatinine. If all are normal, I would treat you symptomatically with a proton pump inhibitor, a probiotic, and an anti spasmodic drug for a symptomatic relief, along with some routine exercise programme for you. Add more of roughage and liquids in your diet. I might consider going for a recheck of the serum amylase and lipase value after aournd 4-6 months.

I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts.
