Option 1:The amylase test is a diagnostic tool used to measure the levels of amylase present in the blood or urine. Amylase is an enzyme that aids in the digestion of carbohydrates and is mainly produced by the pancreas and salivary glands. A small amount of amylase is normal, but abnormally high or low levels could indicate a disorder of the pancreas, salivary glands, or another medical condition. The test is frequently used to diagnose pancreatitis and monitor chronic pancreatitis. An amylase urine test may be conducted after or with an amylase blood test. Additionally, these tests may also help diagnose or monitor treatment for other disorders that influence amylase levels, such as digestive conditions and salivary gland disorders.Option 2:The amylase test is a diagnostic test that measures the level of amylase present in the blood or urine. Amylase, a protein enzyme, is responsible for breaking down carbohydrates during the digestion process, and is primarily produced by the pancreas and salivary glands. While a certain level of amylase in the blood and urine is normal, an excessive or insufficient amount could be indicative of a medical condition or disorder affecting the pancreas or salivary glands. The test is primarily used to diagnose pancreatitis and monitor chronic pancreatitis. An amylase urine test may be conducted in conjunction with or after an amylase blood test, as increases or decreases in amylase levels are first detected in blood. The amylase test may also be used to diagnose or monitor treatment for other conditions affecting amylase levels, such as salivary gland disorders and certain digestive conditions.
Option 1:If you exhibit signs of a pancreatic condition, your healthcare provider may request an amylase urine and/or blood test. These symptoms may manifest suddenly or gradually and may include upper abdominal pain that may worsen after meals, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fever, fast heartbeat, jaundice, and greasy and malodorous stools. An amylase test may also be required to monitor an existing pancreatic ailment, such as chronic pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, eating disorders, cystic fibrosis, alcohol use disorder, or recovery from gallstones removal following a gallbladder attack.Option 2:If you are experiencing symptoms of a pancreatic disorder, such as upper abdominal pain, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fever, fast heartbeat, jaundice, and greasy, foul-smelling stool, your healthcare provider may require you to undergo an amylase test. This test can be done through blood or urine analysis. Additionally, an amylase test may be ordered by your provider to monitor a pre-existing condition that affects the pancreas, which includes chronic pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, eating disorders, cystic fibrosis, alcohol use disorder, and recovering from gallstones removal after a gallbladder attack.

Dr. Julie Sigal Rosenmann
Incredibly efficient. Very kind staff, our appointment was at 9:15 and by 9:17 we were in our car on our way back. The place is very clean, with proper seating (having a screen between every 4 seats). Amazing price in comparison to other places. 10/10 would recommend!
Bravo for the service rendered, I am amazed. No need to spend your money elsewhere. Go to LILIUM DIAGNOSTICS it’s the mega top!
