Amylase!


The elevated amylase blood test results I had might be connected to EC- if it is a salivary gland infection. I also have thickened saliva- another sign.

"As the gland is damaged by the infection, there is release of salivary gland amylase (which helps to break down starches) into the bloodstream, and therefore, there is often an increase in blood amylase levels."

The link is in the last post about the causes of salivary gland infections.

"Examination and culturing of the saliva emanating from the gland- In a viral infectious process it is typically clear, and in bacterial infections it is usually more yellow.

For the patient with a chronic bacterial infection, low-dose radiation may be useful to destroy the involved salivary tissue."
