Amylase test is used to measures the amount of amylase in the blood. Amylase is an enzyme, or special protein, produced by the pancreas and salivary glands. It helps in breaking down of carbohydrates and promotes digestion. The pancreas can sometimes become damaged or inflamed, which causes it to produce too much or too little amylase. This test is used to diagnose pancreatic pseudocyst, pancreatic abscess, and pancreatic cancer. If you have symptoms like upper anorexia, abdominal pain, loss of appetite and nausea, you might be prescribed an amylase test.

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. Needle is inserted into the vein of the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
The medication like aspirin, birth control pills, cholinergic medications, methyldopa, opiates, such as codeine, meperidine, and morphine, thiazide diuretics, such as chlorothiazide, indapamide, metolazone, etc., may affect the amylase level.
