Pancreatitis and exercise

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis and exercise

pancreatitis

Avatar n tn Hi - I just had a ct scan due to some severve abdominal pain that I have been experiencing - I did have a gastric bypass three years ago, so I am guessing this is caused by gallstones or pancreatits - Heres a stupid question - I run 4x a week 5 miles, and have been an avid runner since the bypass - since the pain is sporadic during the day, can I run in between?
Avatar m tn Now its been basically non-stop, confirmed by mri, that it is chronic pancreatitis, and fatty liver. Im being sent to a pain specialist for the pain, and hoping he can offer relief, because Ive been recieving very little help from my doctor with that. Im 5'5", used to be about 138lbs, and now am 162, with gain of 10lbs a month on a low fat diet, no meat, no bread, soft food. I dont understand except unless wieght gain is from thyroid going wrong, im hypothyroid.
902019 tn?1249865014 The symptoms of autoimmune pancreatitis for me were weight loss, pale stools, gallbladder-like attacks (but longer-lasting) and elevated liver function tests - which initially were thought to be a bile duct obstruction complicated by blockage of gallbladder sludge. Stenting the common bile duct and later removal of gallbladder (which was in bad shape) still didn't solve the problems. See my response (above) to DT10 for further info.
Avatar f tn Also, I have come to a conclusion that the cirrhosis of the liver (even though I don't drink), the pancreatitis (I don't speak of a gall bladder, because it was removed in the early 1990's when I was in my late 20's) and all these other digestive issues are caused because of my diet, lack of exercise and my obesity. It has to be hard on my body with all these problems. But my question really is: can cirrhosis and pancreatitis be caused by non-compliant blood sugar levels?
Avatar m tn acute pancreatitis, trauma and irradiation of skeletal muscle, acute hemolytic anemia, acute renal disease, severe burns, cardiac catheterization and angiography, recent brain trauma with brain necrosis" (death of brain tissue), "crushing injuries", and "progressive muscular dystrophy". There are a host of drugs that can be interfering factors with this test & cause elevated levels. It doesn't list exercise as an interfering factor.
Avatar n tn I delivered twins by C-section at 33 1/2 weeks after being admitted into the hospital with severe stomach pain and vomiting. I was diagnosed with pancreatitis and was in ICU for 2 weeks. My condition worsened and I eventually was given a blood transfusion which ultimately saved my life. Medical history: (1) Crohn's disease diagnosed in 1992 and 3 feet of small intestine removed in Dec. 1995 after repeated bowel obstructions. I have been asymptomatic since Dec.
Avatar f tn My stomach was swollen and everything. I exercise 5-7 days a week....2hrs a day. I eat fairly healthy although the 2weeks prior to this attack I visited my family in England and ate and drank poorly. Any advice or suggestions would be great.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn He told me she needed to lose weight and I agree but she has been so sick that exercise didn't seem like a good idea. And I have given her some people food to trick her into taking her meds. I am guessing that her pancrease is just sensitive right now and the people food was a bad idea. I made her take a short walk last night and today she is not as lethargic or bloated. I am going to ease her back into exercise and no more people food.
Avatar n tn Elevated lipase levels have greater sensitivity and specificity than amylase in diagnosing acute pancreatitis. Treatment involves I/V fluids and antibiotics. Take care and pls do keep us posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn So, based on these values his doctor would have said that pancreatitis has resolved. Alcohol can also cause gastritis and acid peptic disease and this can cause chest pain. Another cause would be GERD, (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease), where the acid contents of the stomach come up into the esophagus. Ask him to follow these lifestyle measures to help with his symptoms. Take frequent small meals. Eat dinner about two hours before sleeping. Elevate the head end of the bed.
Avatar m tn My internal medicine doctor hasn’t had much to say (“maybe a little inflammation”) and doesn’t appear interested in symptoms (“probably combination gas and stress”). He says it’s taken longer for ALT to fall than expected, but not alarming. Next step is more LFTs, then a GI (until then, waiting game). Would cirrhosis be detected on an U/S? How likely is chronic pancreatitis given these symptoms? Wouldn’t that have shown some abnormalities on the pancreatic enzyme tests?
Avatar n tn She was hospitalized with bacterial pneumonia five years ago, and has declined even moderate exercise since then, due to shortness of breath which makes exercise difficult and strenuous activity impossible. She has not seen a doctor since her release from the hospital, with the cause of the pneumonia still unknown. She has been suffering from the vomiting/adominal pain episodes for some two or three years now.
172023 tn?1334675884 It accounts for only about 2 percent of the cancers diagnosed each year but the first-year survival rate is less than 5 percent, according to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Until now, smoking and chronic pancreatitis were the most well established risk factors for the disease in men and women, with much of the evidence also pointing to a stronger obesity link for men.

Avatar m tn I have lost 15 pounds thus far through daily exercise. I decided to step up my exercise a notch and do an hour a day more intensely. For a few weeks I was handling it quite well---good energy, feeling great, but then one day I started to feel a little knot in my upper stomach and a suppression in my desire to eat..I though it was because the exercise endorphins were kicking in and that was a good thing...but after about the 3rd day, after my exercise session, I feel very weak and fatigued...
Avatar f tn Other common health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, pancreatitis, hemolytic anemia and thyroid disease, can also cause liver transaminase elevations. Most liver diseases are characterized by greater ALT elevations than AST elevations except cirrohsis and alcohol abuse. In your case the raised enzymes are due to both Topamax and hypothyroidism. With raised enzyme levels and a persistent nausea a stool test and an abdominal ultrasound should be done to rule out the other causes.
Avatar f tn His bloodwork came back with an elavated AST level, so the ER doctor suggested discussing it with his pediatrician and retesting. I did this, and he was retested. I asked his doctor what the result was, and she said his ALT level was normal. What is the difference between AST and ALT? Was the pediatrician confused about what I was asking? Should I be concerned about elavated AST? Would salmonella cause elavated AST? Finally, should I have him retested?
Avatar n tn I don't smoke or drink and control diabetes with diet, exercise and minimum dose of Metformin ER. Fats are very problematic. I need some hope and direction! Any comments appreciated. It is good to hear I am not alone although I do not wish this on anyone. Does anyone have any suggestions or comments?
Avatar m tn The generalized pain and the inflammation could be due to unaccustomed exercise. I suggest you take it slow or even stop exercising till you recover from pain completely. If due to exercise the pain should resolve, if not it should be due to other causes like cholecystitis, peptic ulcer disease or pancreatitis. Then you could consult a doctor for evaluation. Regards.
96108 tn?1197694930 The biggest advice I can give, which won't hurt, is to eat bland, regular meals, eat enough, exercise to feel good, and above all, try to avoid stress which will make your female hormones go haywire and might aggravate symptoms.
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 n tn When the Gastroenterologist gave me the fish theory it sounded like he thinks it's all a figment of my imagination. I don't smoke or drink and control diabetes with diet, exercise and minimum dose of Metformin ER. Fats are very problematic. I need some hope and direction! Any comments appreciated. It is good to hear I am not alone although I do not wish this on anyone.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Your persisting symptoms of pain, nausea and vomiting could indicate a viral gastroenteritis. The other causes could be jaundice if there is yellowish discoloration of skin, food poisoning if the symptoms occurred shortly after taking food, peptic ulcer disease and sometimes cholecystitis and pancreatitis. You can follow up with an abdominal ultrasonography to detect any structural abnormalities. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
10704596 tn?1412131346 I will have to start eating better and do more exercise.!! I know my dad is diabetic and really need to cut back on my sweet tooth. Can diabetes be reversed if one were to lose weight, exercise and watch what they eat ? What do you recommend to eat ? Thanks !
Avatar m tn Also do not do any strenuous exercise. Many a times AST (SGOT)and ALT OR SGPT (both are collectively called transaminases) rise without any cause. Because AST is found in many other organs besides the liver, including the kidneys, the muscles, and the heart, having a high level of AST does not always (but often does) indicate that there is a liver problem. For example, even vigorous exercise may elevate AST levels in the body.
Avatar n tn I am off all anti-depressants and pain medications and feel like I'm slowly waking from a nightmare of doubt and un-certainty that was probably being caused by the drugs.
Avatar f tn Heartburn and GERD can be triggered by medications, large meals, and exercise. Gastrtis, achalasia, esophageal spasm, peptic ulcer disease are few other differentials of your condition. It is best to get evaluated and start treatment accordingly. Seek medical help. Do keep me posted. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar n tn stop drinking,eatinf sugar laden junk foods and eats good fats like olvie oila and such,and exercise and drink good pure water...
Avatar n tn I still exercise on a regular basis.....most of which is aerobic and have some discomfort during exercise sometimes and other times not. If I eat something before exercise it really feels full and like I can't take a full breath. I do not have any other symtoms of heart disease like pain in the arms and/or light headedness or sweating with these other symtoms. My resting heartbeat is below 50 and I can still hold my breath for underwater swimming for 90 seconds!
