My last routine test showed a high level of amylase

My last routine test showed a high level of amylase of 180. Other test results were okay although my total cholesterol was 232. I sometimes have stomach discomfort but no vomiting, jaundice, fever or nausea. I used to have gastritis and acid reflux. What could be the cause of this high amylase and what can i do to reduce it and bring it under control. I am 54 years old

Hi I have a very high level of amylase I have had in the last two months 5 blood tests a scan a endoscopy was going to a consultant but the doctor had a talk with the consultant and said because I was not loosing weight he didn t think it was necessary. What is worrying me he said that it was good news that the blood test showed no cancer,my husband and I are in our 70s and are quite worried. Many thanks Yvonne.
