I just got back my blood results and my Lipase levels were high. I did a quick search on-line but didn't find out much. Does anybody know what role Lipase plays with Ulcerative Colitis and what does it mean to have a high level of lipase? I spoke with my GI's nurse but all she could tell me was that she thinks it plays a role with my kidneys.
What meds are you taking? The 5-ASA meds cause pancreatitis for about 3% of users. High Lipase levels indicate pancreatitis.
I needed to stop taking Colazol for this reason.
