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.
