Hi, I am currently in Brazil and had a swollen saliva gland. The doctors here thought I had mumps so they did a amylase test. The result was 754. I know that this is really high but does it confirm that it is mumps. I also read that it could be a result of any salivary gland infection.

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 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.
