How can I lower my amylase levels which is secreated from salivary glands ?
Hi I was wondering if there is any way to lower the amylase levels secreated from salivary glands . Wondering if there is a way to abruptly lower amylase sereum levels, so that parotid , sub mandibular salivary glands shrink down.
hello, amylase is adigestive enzyme secreted by pancreas and salivary glands.there is nothing to lower amylase level which will cause shrinkage of parotid gland.please give details of your problem. u have not given enough information about the disease.i think u have pancreatic problem.give details of habits like alcohol consumption and diet.
Hi , Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Do you consume Alcohol? How old are you? Serum Amylase is an enzyme that helps digest carbohydrates. It is produced by the pancreas and the glands that make saliva that is submandibular or Parotid Glands. When the pancreas is diseased or inflamed, amylase releases into the blood and level increases. What is your amylase level? the normal range is 23 to 140 u/l but it varies from facility to facility. The exact cause for this has to be found out and treated. You should be seeing a gastroenterologist for this. If you drink alcohol, quit.
Wish you Good Health.

I am having swelling in my left parotid area. I get a whistling sound too in that left ear. 4 year back i had swelling on my ear membrane. Hearing capacity of left ear is 25 percent less than right ear. Suggest the proper treatment. I shall be highly obliged. Thank you.
I have what appears to be slight swelling in the left parotid and throat area with occassional pain during swallowing. The pain is like a needle stabbing me then it s gone. The first couple of times it happened it caused a spasm across the throat and it s only happened once on the right side. I have hasimotos disease. Had ablation 7 years ago. Endocrinologist suggested ENT for scope. What could this be? Just want to be informed for doctor appts. so I can give them the best information possible to diagnosis this quickly. I do have what seems to be excessive (at least to me ) ear fluid and in morning a lot of sinus congestion followed by drainage. but this swelling and pain during swallowing has been there for 4 months now. Thank you
My parotid glands are swollen. BP 170/90 and bpm 150. I insufflated around 4, 10mg dexedrine ir and swallowed 2 in the last 12 hours. I know thats a rather small ammount for overdose but i can't get anything other than very general information off the internet about it.
I had eye twitching , followed by parotid gland swelling and doctor recommended amox-clas 875 mg tablets and Valacyclovir tablets for 2 weeks and I see that the swelling got reduced and still there is some slight pain in the ear. Can you tell me whether its chronic
