Question: pancreatitis ????


 super222269 - Thu Mar 24, 2005 4:15 am

I have a couple of questions about pancreatitis.. First of all,, what are levels of amylase and lipase that would be of concern for a doctor looking for pancreatitis. I am looking for a specific number ie. lipase over 200 and amylase over 180 or something like that. I am wondering what is high and what is considered normal.

also, do anabolic steroids, such as testosterone and deca have any negative effects on the pancreas... ?? thanks :?:
