Detailed Answer:

Thank you for providing those details. Accordingly my suggestions are:

1)Stop drinking alcohol and smoking if any

2)Choose a diet that limits fat and emphasizes fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean protein

3)Try to drink more fluids throughout day and keep water bottle on hand.

4) Consider using pancreatic enzymes which contains [amylase + lipase + protease] before your meal and it can help your body break down and process the nutrients in the foods you eat. These enzymes are available as supplements. Your pharmacist should know about it.

5) Please consult with your local doctor and discuss about running few blood tests like serum amylase and lipase and a abdominal ultrasound to rule out underlying cause associated with your problem.

I hope I was able to answer your question if you have further clarifications please do not hesitate to ask me.

Wish you a good health

doctor1 MD

would it be prudent to test liver function (blood test) -- given Lipase has been trending upwards (just above normal) Amylase trending lower (although in range), vitamin D -- low requested to take supplements, and EUS performed was normal. I m thinking these results could be related to liver, am I on the right track?

A few weeks ago, my PCP suspected Pancreatitus, and ordered blood work to check amylase & lypase levels- they came back 313 & 819. She referred me to a GI doctor. A another few weeks went by while I waited on my appt time to arrive. The GI doctor repeated the lab work, but it returned in the normal range. What should I think? Should we proceed with a scheduled EUS.
