Lipase is an enzyme whose levels can be used to diagnose disorders of the pancreas. It is released by the pancreas into the small intestine to help the body absorb fat.
Lipase levels may help determine cancer of the pancreas or salivary glands, as well as other gastrointestinal or pancreatic issues, or liver disease. This blood test is used to measure lipase levels.
