Can antibiotics cause pancreatitis

Common Questions and Answers about Can antibiotics cause pancreatitis


Avatar n tn You need to find a specialist that will keep on searching and testing until he or she can find the cause of your pain. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Fluid therapy, regular blood work (sometimes several times a day), pain meds or a patch for pain and antibiotics are often used. This is a very painful condition. In pancreatitis, nutrients the dog needs are passed out in the feces, thus probably the reason for the weight loss (and that is quite a bit). Has he been checked for diabetes?
Avatar n tn A portion of her intestine was re-routed and attached to the psuedocyst to drain. She continued with severe pancreatitis and a month and a half later she uderwent another surgical procedure to open the pancreatic ducts to allow the fluid to flow. She had an amazing recovery and was eating and out of the hospital two weeks later. Now, one year later she is having another bout of pancreatitis and we are so scared.
Avatar f tn It is hard to eliminate the inciting factor since a cause is never found in 90% of the cases. However, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and other antimicrobials should be used to cover possible infectious causes such as toxoplasmosis infection, and to cover infections secondary to the pancreatitis, if warrented. Treatment of pancreatitis in cats include the following: For Anorexia (not eating), use appetite stimulant medications.
902019 tn?1249865014 The other thing you may want to ask about is a comment I saw on the Mayo Clinic site that said that Imuran can cause or contribute to Pancreatitis. I'd love to know what he/she says on both counts.
Avatar m tn Sludge can be an indication of biliary issues. However, simply following an extreme diet will few meals can cause it as well. But enough sludge will be noticable as RUQ aches and mild nausea with low grade fevers. If you remain suspicious of the possibility of some form of gallbladder/biliary issue, then press her doctor for an MRI/MRCP. It is the best image technology for this type of thing. I have had many myself, and if you have biliary issues, this will show the pathology very well.
Avatar n tn Acute pancreatitis has high levels of amalase and lipase and is sometimes very critical as this one appears to be. Do a search on the web for acute Pancreatitis for more information than you can read. Then do one on Chronic Pancreatitis and see the differences. Hope things improve.
Avatar f tn because she can have her 2 others treats anymore that she dearly loved. Pancreatitis can be fatal and can affect other organs. We watch her very closely. She used to like to actually steal candy out of the candy dish even with the glass lid on top. she scooted it with her nose. But we put everything up high now. I know how it feels. It breaks my heart to think that one day I could lose her from this.
Avatar n tn I have read about pancreatitis and seem to remember that this ERCP test alone can cause pancreatitis, and not to sure I want to feel any worse then what I do now if this is the case. I just dont know what else to expect and this quack I have for a Dr doesnt seem to concerned with answering my questions, puts me off telling me to wait and see what the tests show. Not schedualled for another visit with him in office until end of OCt. How long does pancreatitis take to go away?
Avatar f tn Just a little stress since I'm very concerned for my health and my next appointment is in 2 weeks. So what can it be the cause of the Yellowish Stools? GERD? The Nexium? or any other of my recently DX?
Avatar n tn I would encourage you to get to another doctor for a second opinion. Lots of things can cause a pancreatitis- not just smoking or drinking, and if you are at the point that you are bed ridden, they should be addressing this much more 'hands on'.
Avatar f tn My Maltese had pancreatitis, it also effected his liver. It was so bad that he was on IV for three weeks and Had to process chicken and vegetables. Do NOT do a liver biopsy. The live enzymes are high because of his condition right now. He is on all of the right medications, except one. You need to have your vet write a script for pancreatic enzymes called, Pancreaze, 4200 unit caps. Give him one cap 20 mins.
1337091 tn?1275912473 IV support, TPN nutrition, nothing by mouth and pain meds and antibiotics if the cause is infectious. We spent nearly $10,000 trying to to save him, but couldn't. At least he had excellent pain management the last couple weeks of his life. Believe me, I know how awful it is to be faced with this decision. I think you need a very honest discussion with your vet about prognosis. You know your dog better than anyone.
Avatar n tn I will NOT risk another digestive disaster and hope she can come up with something else. So, YES....thryroid meds CAN cause constipation. If anyone thinks otherwise, they haven't been through what some of us have.
Avatar m tn Belief it or not severe constipation with a lot of bearing down can cause the pseudomediastinum. Also, something that caused a tear of the trachea or excessive vomiting or sneezing. It could have caused a leak in between the lung and the area between the two lungs, and maybe his peritoneum got a tear too? This could lead to a bacterial infection. Is his temperature high? If so they will put him on antibiotics. Let us know how he does.
Avatar m tn It is characterized by symptoms of abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Pancreatitis can lead to severe complications, if left untreated. There are two types of Pancreatitis 1.Acute and 2.Chronic. The main causes of Pancreatitis are persistent high alcohol consumption, gall bladder stones, geographic location, especially the tropics. Allopathic treatments include IV or IM pain killers, Antacids and Antibiotics.
Avatar n tn You asked about the sausage triggering all of this, so I thought I'd give you a comment--- (fatty foods are something you should stay away from!) My husband has "sludge" in his gallbladder, and once in a while gets a pancreatitis attack. Anything fatty can bring it on.
Avatar n tn i heard that if one has gallbladder issues, if one has h.pylori it can increase/spread the infection faster. so high cholestrol can cause CP umm, its hard to exercise as im very weak and i get aches and pains, but im doing quite wel as its all about the diet so i need: treat h.
537435 tn?1248715692 Many people can have gallbladder-like issues and all the tests can be normal, so it can be a difficult thing to try to track down. Have you considered following a very low fat diet to see if over time it will help? There is also another condition that could be underlying some of the gallbladder-like discomfort that some have. It's called SOD, sphincter of Oddi dysfunction and it's typically not uncovered until the gallbladder is taken out.
1150172 tn?1302136101 Please post your B12 level and reference range, along with your thyroid levels and reference ranges, and indicate whether or not you are being treated for your low B12 level. Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause debilitating exhaustion. Too much thyroid medication would most likely make you hyper; however, we'd need to see your labs in order to help determine if you are, in fact, over medicated.
Avatar f tn Hypoglycemia by itself can cause seizures and coma. Addison’s disease is not the only cause of sudden hypoglycemia, though. Other causes that could have occurred in your dog’s case include Insulinoma (a tumor of the pancreas that produces excess insulin) and overwhelming infection (possibly secondary to the surgery, in your dog‘s case). There was a sign of possible infection in your dog: “SQ emphysema” in the integument at the suture site, this can be indicative of infection.
Avatar f tn I thought she just drank too much water after going for a walk with me earlier in the day. Or could this have been pancreatitis?There was butter and sugar in the dessert. Although this wasn't the first time she has gotten into the trash or eaten other human food on accident and had been completely fine. I am wondering if all of those occasions where she got into human food has accumulated clots in her pancreas.
Avatar n tn The onlyrelief I saw is when I was put on antibiotics that only lasted a few days.Then had alot of relief in the abdominal area and was able to breath better with the prevacid.I recently saw a infectious disease dr. he said the cat showed the chronic sinitus in the maxillary ls area.I had my sinuses scrapped8/2001 but I guess the infection is still there.The hemotologist said my blood was hypercoagulable but does not know why?Can my sinuse infection do this ?
5068867 tn?1363127855 Damn it's hard to type for me atm, but i'll try to focus here is everything chronologically -3 months ago i had some back pain and kidney pain, and felt really crappy due to working long hours on my computer and also EXTREMELY stressed because of work/life issues -went to doctor with host of symptoms including, urinating frequently, irregular bowel, pain in the center of back etc (i thought it was pancreatitis tbh) -leukocites in urine were high, they gave me antibiotics -after taking those, i
Avatar n tn It causes an inner ear incongruency between fluids that can cause ataxia (dizziness). I had to use meds in my 30's for that problem to increase the oxygen cuz I couldn't even drive in a car or even turn around while walking with out getting "sea sick". I've had periods of bloating but not so much now. My metabolism has slowed down so much that if I eat more than one meal, I gain weight. So I have to eat extremely small meals and only one that's normal.
Avatar n tn Went to gastroenterolist and he did an endoscopy (?) Found duodenal ulcers. Treated with antibiotics. Then two years later lower abdominal pains. Couldn't walk type. Thought it was apendicitis. Ended up I have diverticulitis. Hospitalized on intra-venus antibiotics for one week. Three more attacks within one year-each time treated with anti-biotics. After last attack doctor said let's do an abdominal cat scan. Did that. Call today he wants me to have a red-blood scan.
Avatar n tn just to add, can chronic pancreatitis cause gastropathy? if so how and how is it treated?
Avatar n tn All bloodwork is normal except for amylase. Diarrhea continuing and is now all blood. Suspect pancreatitis is involved but not main issue. Hospital is gving him fluids and broad spectrum antibiotics. Also checking clotting to see if plasma is needed. Any ideas on what is going on?
1519223 tn?1500816586 In 2011, the FDA received almost 200 reports of acute and chronic pancreatitis linked to Januvia and Janumet – some of which were fatal. Pancreatitis Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas. It can cause the body’s digestive enzymes to attack the pancreas. In severe cases, the disease can cause tissue damage, infection, cyst formation and bleeding. The damage can spread to other organs like the heart, kidneys and lungs, and the mortality rate is 10 to 30 percent.
