Hi JACustomer, thanks for your question.

The short answer is that, yes, it can show on blood work. However, we usually have to run a specific test for it. In some cases, that isn't done. In others, a diagnosis is made on an increased lipase (although not nearly as specific as other testing, it's often diagnostic). Basically, you have to run the right tests to get the confirmation.
