I drank for five days heavily and was admitted to a hospital with hangover and heartburn. They took the test and my amylase and lipase were little high. Then they gave me medicines. Past one week, I am taking Panblock morning and night and Encremin. My health is alright now but my amylase and lipase is little high. Can you give me a clear answer, when does it become normal? I am anxious about it and worried a lot about this test. I have stopped drinking forever. Can it reverse? Please help me. I am attaching my reports.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have seen the reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity). You had a mild attack of acute pancreatitis.
The amylase level shoots first and slowly decreases over two to three weeks. Lipase shoots slowly. No point in checking it very often as it usually takes time to normalize.
Yours looks like a mild attack only and not a severe one. Once you are symptom-free you can relax.
Get an amylase (amylase only, not lipase) after a month. Get an ultrasound scan also after a month.
The disease needs avoidance of precipitating factors so that further damage to the pancreas can be prevented.
Hope your queries have been cleared.
