Pancreatitis and beer

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis and beer


Avatar n tn Since all your lab works and imaging studies are otherwise normal and you never had any bout of pancreatitis before, a wait and watch policy is likely to be the best course of action for you. Also, the risk of surgery to pancreas is high, so since the side branch lesions are usually harmless, a wait and watch policy is adopted for most lesions less than 3 cm which do not cause dilatation of the main pancreatic duct nor have a solid mass or nodule within them.
Avatar f tn I have chronic pancreatitis and this disease is very hard to diagnose and be diagnosable with! The thing that is hard with it is, which you have experienced, your scans can look normal and blood tests also and you still have pain,nausea, fatigue and the whole pancreatitis everything! The ER will not do anything about this because nothing is showing up on any of your tests and according to the its not an "emergency" so get to a GI fast!
1034172 tn?1393046202 This is my 2nd attempt and so far my longest and it seems easier granted still hard but easier. I used to drink beer and I could easily down a 12 pack that was nothing and I was ranging in weight from 110 -130 it would go back and forth. I would drink on occasion but then the drinking slowly began to be every day and then I would call into work if I had a case of beer in the fridge and I would be pumped and drunk by noon.
Avatar m tn There is a website with information on digestive and kidney diseases(and pancreatitis) that the National Institutes of Health sponsor. Perhaps you can find some helpful information. I take one Prilosec, 20 mg(prescribed); Prilosec ,10 mg is sold OTC at any pharmacy. Here is the website: I do not know why, but the website takes you to Google that list the same URL. Click on the Heading, Digestive, and search.
Avatar n tn The pain has gradually worsened, with a lot of stomach cramping and pain in my sides and my back. It's not constant, but sporadic and annoying. Also, my stools began to float as well, though with no apparently discoloration. No jaundice.
Avatar n tn Each time he has pains are they outside warnings that the pancreatitis is eating part of it away? 3. can this progress to cronic pancreatitis and, 4.will he have this the rest of his life?

Avatar n tn He is an alcoholic and has been for a very long time.

Avatar f tn I drank one can of beer, (not even the whole thing,) a while after eating. And that was the only alcoholic beverage I'd had in about a month. An hour or two later, I was in agony. I felt like there were bowling balls in my abdomen. Very bloated. It hurt everywhere. I began vomiting and having diarrhea nonstop until the pain was unbearable and I couldn't even move. When the paramedics showed up, I was severely dehydrated. They took my BP and it was 84 over something I can't remember. Very low.
Avatar n tn I am so fearful that I'm going to experience this pain indefinately, and moreso, that I will develop pancreatitis and die. I feel too young to be combating something of this nature. What is the prognosis for SOD, and how can I ensure that I am receiving the most appropriate and proactive care? Can you hear the fear? Help!
Avatar m tn My question is after a period of inactivity, say 6 months to a year, is it okay to have a beer or two and go back to normal eating habits? Not eating or drinking like before, but a few beers or drinks on a night out or the weekend?
Avatar n tn I have Chronic Pancreatitis that stemmed from Acute Pancreatitis, I have struggled with relapsing off coc and alcohol, cigarettes. I have had periods of good clean time and then went back. Each time I went back to any of these especially the drinking and smoking, my CP has gotten much worse. Now I weigh 108 lbs and I am going to suffer most likely for the rest of my life. Please advise him to go to AA, as I need to go and stay there myself.
Avatar f tn But, my husband is convinced that once he gets the sleep apnea problem taken care of, he will slowly be able to wean off of the meds and alcohol. He says the only reason that he takes the meds and drinks the beer is because he has trouble sleeping at night and all of these vices help him get to sleep and stay asleep. I was only with my husband one time when he passed out while driving. The first time, he was by himself. He was driving down a back road.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis this am and schedualed for a ERCP for friday. I have some concerns about this diagnosis and this test. I have not been hospitalized for this condition at all, not even ER. it has taken me over a month to get diagnosis and still no relief from discomfort. Just more tests to take. I look like a junkie from all the blood they have taken and they want more. My almase and lipase levels have continued to rise over the course of the past fourteen days.
Avatar m tn My blood work results showed elevated amylase (370) and lipase (850), The doctor diagnosed me with pancreatitis. My pain and discomfort has subsided by day 3. Could the experts here confirm the diagnosis? I am 38, no history of alcohol abuse although I have a beer or two every other day. I intend to completely give up alcohol and fatty foods. If it is pancreatitis, can i expect additional attacks? Any pointers in avoiding attacks will be most appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

Avatar n tn The pain type, after drinking or eating fatty foods (I've had some pain today all day and last night I had a beer and fatty meats at a German restaurant), is a lot like what I read. Upper left, sometimes radiating lower, sometimes under rib cage, once two weeks ago it seemed like it hit the back for a second. And I stopped binge drinking before age 40 (I'm 44 now) but I had quite a lot of binges in my 20s and most of my 30s.
Avatar m tn METHODS Between 1980 and 1988, we prospectively studied 86 patients who had acute pancreatitis. In patients with no known cause of pancreatitis and no ultrasonographic evidence of gallstones or dilatation of the biliary ducts, we determined how often biliary sludge was present and its subsequent fate by repeated microscopical examinations of bile samples and abdominal ultrasonography. Anyone have any ideas of what could be going on?
Avatar n tn Now, over the last few weeks, there is a sore pain in my left side, generally the middle of the side, but does not go away easily. Sometimes it leaves, then it returns. One time I had a beer and BBQ and it seemed to go away, but other times, it seems to have picked up AFTER eating and having one beer ( which I hardly drink anymore). THe pain HAs on occasion, felt as if it were getting under my ribs, and yes once, it did seem to radiate around to the back.
Avatar f tn He told me to research Cannabis induced pancreatitis and I would find material. I got home and did more research and came up with very little, and absolutely no conclusive evidence. I live in Florida and in November out state will vote on Medical Marijuana. I think that with all the lobbying going on from big pharmaceutical companies, this has influenced my doctors diagnosis. Has anyone heard of this or been given this answer? Thanks so much.
Avatar n tn Anything ingested containing wheat, rye, barley, oats causes abdominal distention and lots and lots of gas and then progresses to diarrhea. If you get on line there is a website called www.glutenintolerancegroup. There will be a section on symptoms and see if you can relate to any of them. Once I was on a gluten-free diet, my diarrhea and gas completely went away in only a week. Once I ingest even the smallest amount of gluten-containing food, I will have symptoms in 20-30 minutes.
Avatar m tn I still drink beer on the weekends and take nexium to control heartburn. Could my liver be out of whack and it not show up at all during a hida scan or all of the blood tests they did?
Avatar m tn I have had an ultra sound done on my gallbladder and it turned up negative for anything. I am sorry if i didnt mention that in the first description.
Avatar f tn Almost 2 months ago, after a particularly boozy bachelorette party, I started having severe acid reflux and regurgitation, as well as nausea and diarrhea. My doctor ran blood tests, and my pancreatic enzymes were slightly elevated (I can remember one was at 108.) My nausea was mild, but the reflux was severe. I felt like something was stuck in my throat, and I would cough up I digested food hours after I had eaten it. I had no stomach pain, or any pain at all.
Avatar m tn when I hang out with friends im always awkard after my mom, and always mad and nervous. When I smoke it hurts a lot and goes away, when I drink the pain goes away and dats why i am drinking exceesivly cause of pain. I sometimes cant sleep it bothers me. Im sorry about this message but I dont know what I should do or say.
Avatar m tn The AST is also elevated after a myocardial infarction, and during acute pancreatitis, acute hemolytic anemia, severe burns, acute renal disease, musculoskeletal diseases, and trauma. The normal range for AST levels in the bloodstream are 5 IU/L to 43 IU/L.
Avatar f tn This is another disease that often leads to chronic pancreatitis after a while and will show up earlier in life. I hope they can find your problem quickly and you get feeling better.
Avatar n tn after having gone asleep) progressed to my elbows and slightly above, and to my knees and slightly above on the outer part of my thighs. The tingling was full-foot and full-hand, as well the full circumference of all four limbs to the major joint bilateral. The "progression" up my limbs took only a few days. My arms and shoulders have begun to feel weak, and I have periodic muscle twitches in tricep/calf.
Avatar m tn Over the past few months I have had digestive problems, throat and abdominal discomfort, and weight loss. Here are my symptoms: Almost every day I feel that part of my throat is swollen and I have a dull ache/discomfort in my throat. Sometimes it is higher in my throat, near my tonsils, and other days it is lower at the base of my throat (I’m assuming near my thyroid?). The discomfort is pretty consistently on the left side of my neck/throat. This has been going on for over a month now.
5882236 tn?1377621424 Much to my surprise, when they re-scoped me, my esophagus was completely healed. There was a slight narrowing and they stretched that out, and my swallowing became much easier. In addition to the two Prilosec I was taking, I started taking Carafate and Zantac at night. Within two weeks I felt fine again. About two weeks later, I reduced my Prilosec to once a day, and stopped taking the other drugs. One week later, I started getting these symptoms again.
Avatar f tn beer is alcohol in large quantities it brings on cirrhosis,pancreatitis hepatitis...does hike the liver enzymes!
