Lipase, Random Urine
The Lipase urine test is used to measure the amount of the enzyme lipase. Elevated levels of lipase are an indicator of pancreatitis.
The urine test for lipase is ordered, often along with an amylase test, to help diagnose and monitor acute pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), chronic pancreatitis, and other disorders that involve the pancreas. Lipase testing is also occasionally used in the diagnosis and follow-up of cystic fibrosis, celiac disease, and Crohn’s disease. This is a non-fasting urine lab test. Expect results in 5-6 business days
