Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Elastase is an enzyme produced by the pancreas that helps with digestion. The fecal elastase test is used to help diagnose pancreatic disease. This test measures the amount of elastase in a stool sample.

The fecal elastase test is used to diagnose pancreatic insufficiency. This condition occurs when the pancreas doesn't produce enough digestive enzymes. Fecal elastase is one of these enzymes. When it's low, it's a sign that the pancreas isn't working properly.

The test is usually done along with other tests, such as a stool fat test and a pancreas function test. Your doctor may recommend this test if you have symptoms of pancreatitis, such as abdominal pain and weight loss.

The normal range for fecal elastase is between 100 and 400 mcg/g of stool. Fecal elastase levels can be used to assess pancreatic function and to diagnose pancreatic disease.

There are a few things you can do to lower your fecal elastase test results:

1. Eat a healthy diet. This means eating plenty of fiber-rich foods, including fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Fiber helps bulk up stool and make it easier to pass.
2. Drink plenty of fluids. This helps keep stool soft and easy to pass.
3. Exercise regularly. This helps stimulate the bowel and keep things moving along smoothly.
4. Avoid constipation by using the restroom when you first feel the urge to go. Straining can increase fecal elastase levels in the blood.

The fecal elastase test is considered safe. There are no risks associated with this test.

As with any medical test, it is important to discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure with your doctor beforehand. You should also let your doctor know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, as the test may not be recommended in these cases.

Yes, fasting is required for the Fecal Elastase Test. This is because the test measures the amount of elastase, an enzyme that breaks down proteins, in your stool. If you have recently eaten, elastase levels in your stool could be affected and give inaccurate results.

Yes, home sample collection is available for the Fecal Elastase Test. One can opt for home collection while booking a test through Max Lab.
