    Calm down, reread your question and try to rephrase it. Your post makes no sense, so I can't work out what you're asking!
    But I'm happy to help.

    Okay, thanks!
    1) Why would amylase found in the blood of someone, not affect them?
    2) Why would protein enzymes released by pancreatitis into the blood be harmful?

    Thank you again, I panic a lot haha

    Because amylase in blood does not last for a long time in the blood. So the symptoms of hyperamylasemia are often not recognized.
