Lipase is an enzyme necessary for the absorption and digestion of nutrients in the intestines.
Lipase is responsible for breaking down lipids (fats), in particular triglycerides.
Once broken down into smaller components, triglycerides are more easily absorbed in the intestines.
Lipase is primarily produced in the pancreas, but is also produced in the mouth and stomach.
A Lipase test is often used along with an Amylase test to help diagnose and monitor acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, and other disorders that involve the pancreas.
Lipase testing is also used in the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis, celiac disease, and Crohn's disease.
