Amylase

Amylase Serum Test

The amylase blood test is ordered, often along with a lipase test, to help diagnose and monitor acute or chronic pancreatitis and other disorders that may involve the pancreas.

Preparation: No special preparation is needed. Fasting is not required for this blood test. In general, being well hydrated (drinking plenty of water before the blood draw) will help make your veins somewhat easier to locate and access for the blood draw.
