What is Pancreatitis?
Pancreatitis is a serious condition, wherein your pancreas becomes swollen or gets inflamed. The pancreas is a crucial element of your digestive process as it helps in the digestion of food and glucose management with the secretion of enzymes. Depending on the severity of the symptoms, pancreatitis can either be acute or chronic. Some of the pancreatitis symptoms to look out for include, tender abdomen, fever, hiccups, vomiting, nausea, sudden weight loss, and inflamed or bloated stomach.
The pancreatitis test entails the use of a blood sample to test for two specific enzymes, amylase and lipase. If the pancreas blood test result shows elevated levels of both enzymes, then the chances are that you are suffering from pancreatitis. Besides the blood test, other imaging diagnostics such as CT scans, MRI, and ultrasound can also be conducted to get a clearer picture of the pancreas.
