My amylase level was around 500 is this fatal

Response from Dr. Henry

You dont mention what your HIV status is and which HIV drugs your are taking (this forum is for discussion of side effects of HIV drugs). Increased amylase values can be due to pancreatic, salivary gland, or other conditions-that level is of concern (rarely fatal) but clinical correlation is needed. KH
