About serum amylase test

Why is the serum amylase test done?

A serum amylase test is done:

• To measure the amount of amylase present in the blood or urine.
• To check inflammation in the pancreas.
• To diagnose disorders in the salivary gland.

Any injury to the cells and tissues in the pancreas increases the production of amylase. It then moves to the bloodstream and is removed via urine. A serum amylase test measures its levels present in your urine sample. Elevated levels can indicate pancreatitis, blocked pancreatic duct, or a pancreatic tumor.

What does the serum amylase test measure?
  • A serum amylase blood test is used for measuring the levels of amylase in blood and urine. Elevated amylase levels in the blood increase the risk of developing pancreatic disorders.
  • In case of acute pancreatitis, a rise in the amylase levels usually happens 4 to 8 hours after the injury and these continue to remain excessive until a treatment is received. Normal levels are restored a couple of days after receiving the treatment.
  • In case of chronic pancreatitis, there is a rise in the amylase levels initially but there is also a gradual decrease in the same as the pancreas remains affected. This fluctuation in the levels indicates low efficacy of the treatment.
  • Amylase levels in urine are often similar to the levels in the blood. A decrease in the amylase levels in the blood will lead to normal levels in urine as well after a couple of days.
Risks/side effects of serum amylase test

There are usually no side effects or risks associated with a serum amylase test. However, you might feel some pain for a few days in the area from where the blood will be taken using a needle. You can cover the same with a bandaid to prevent infection.

FAQs

What is a serum amylase test?

A serum amylase test is used for assessing the amount of amylase in the blood or urine. Amylase, an essential protein or an enzyme, aids in the digestion of food through the breakdown of carbohydrates. It is produced in the salivary glands and pancreas.

Small amounts of amylase in the blood and urine indicate no harm and are normal. However, exceedingly high or low amounts of amylase can signify pancreatic problems, an infection, or other medical conditions, including salivary gland disorders. Therefore, it becomes vital to get a serum amylase test done on a timely basis.

When is the serum amylase performed?

A serum amylase test is performed if you experience the following symptoms:

  • Frequent urination
  • Excessive thirst
  • Fatigue
  • Chest pain
  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Weakness
  • Weight loss

Symptoms of pancreatic disorders, including fever, appetite loss, abdominal pain

How to prepare for a serum amylase test?

There are certain things you need to keep in mind for the serum amylase test:

  • Do not intake alcohol at least 24 hours before the test.
  • Do inform your doctor about any medicines that you are intaking before the test, as these can have an impact on your test results.
  • Do not consume anything except water, 2 hours before taking the blood test.
How is the serum amylase test performed?

The serum amylase test is performed by collecting your blood sample from a vein using an injection. The area from where the blood would be withdrawn would be first cleaned using some alcohol. You can later cover it with a gauze pad. The serum amylase test can be done either at a hospital, laboratory, or clinic. Home collection services are also available. You can also go for a urine amylase test, where you will be required to provide your urine sample in a sterile container.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
