Pancreatitis and magnesium

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis and magnesium


Avatar f tn Changes may also be seen in levels of glucose, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and bicarbonate. However these symptoms can also be seen in gall stones, hepatitis, duodenal ulcer, gastric reflux and cancers of the stomach. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Maybe a gastroenterologist is the best person you should approach.
Avatar n tn In November of last year I had an ERCP where they didn't find any stones in the bile duct or anything but ended up with Pancreatitis and hospitalized for 4 days and out of work several weeks. Then the pains subsided and other than having terrible Acid Reflux I didn't appear to have any problems. Then out of the blue last Friday around noon time I started getting terribly nausiated. I thought that I might be coming down with the flu.
Avatar n tn In addition, patients may be afraid to eat because eating brings on the pain. Depression is also common in chronic pancreatitis and this can also reduce appetite and lead to weight loss. Jaundice (when patients develop yellow eyes and skin) occurs in about a third of patients with chronic pancreatitis. It is usually due to damage to the common bile duct which drains bile from the liver to the duodenum. The common bile duct normally passes though the head of the pancreas.

Avatar n tn GI causes of back pain can be caused by pancreatitis or an ulcer. A CT scan along with pancreatic enzymes, as well as an upper GI series and/or upper endoscopy can be considered to evaluate for these causes. If negative, I would also consider an abdominal ultrasound to look at the liver and gallbladder (although the CT scan can image these organs as well). If the tests remain negative, a HIDA scan with CCK stimulation can be considered to evaluate gallbladder ejection fraction.
Avatar n tn Studies have suggested that oxidative stress may contribute to the development of pancreatitis and that antioxidant supplementation may be of some benefit. Natural antioxidants include selenium, beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E. "Magnesium plays a pivotal role in the secretion and function of insulin; without it, diabetes mellitus is inevitable.
4454327 tn?1405206728 Fast forward to next day, I was admitted to ER for pancreatitis,(never had it before), they did tests and noted that the descending colon was thickened and not to rule out ischemic colitis. They also noted I had diverticulosis. On Dec 15th, I had Gallbladder removed as I had pancreatitis again, no stones, sludge and cholesterosis. Im wondering if on that day I had the bad cramps, if I had diverticulitis? If this was possible? No doctor has suggested it. But Im scared it will happen again.
Avatar f tn Even low levels of ferritin (below 40) without anemia are enough to cause mind-numbing fatigue, headaches, hair loss, etc. Has she had her magnesium level tested? This can also contribute to migraines, fatigue, and muscle twitching/pain. Since she's now supplementing with B12, then checking her MMA and homocysteine levels would be a better way to check in future testing, rather than serum B12.
Avatar f tn There are a number of vendors for this, including some who sell on eBay. Yes, magnesium can cause loose stools. Magnesium can be given intravenously and can also be absorbed through the skin, in Epsom Salt baths. Epsom salts contain magnesium chloride. Loose stools can happen after the IV's or the baths, so it's not just oral ingestion that causes it. I've seen articles online that suggested that taking supplemental magnesium can help prevent kidney stones.

Avatar f tn however, his magnesium was critically low at only 1, so they repleted that with IV magnesium yesterday and last night and this morning, his blood pressure became very hypotensive. The last they checked, it was 90/45, WAY too low, especially for someone of his size. I know that magnesium can have some vasodilator effects, so could this be causing his significant hypotension? His systolic is usually in the high 130s.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar f tn That's reason enough right there to have your 1,25D checked along with 25D. Osteopenia is a common sub diagnoses in Th1 patients, and low calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus intake can still obviously be a contributing factor. But giving any type of Vit D to a Th1 patient can actually contribute to developing osteoporosis, not prevent it.

Avatar n tn Hi, I was admitted in a hospital a week ago for acute pancreatitis and was discharged just after 30 hours. I was instructed to take Omeprazole for two weeks and then go back for follow-up. However, last night, just five days after my very first attack, I was in so much pain again that I had to be rushed to the ER. This time they didn't admit me as my Lipase level was lower than in the first attack (316). They did, however, added another medication: Maalox Susp.
5992848 tn?1377995332 they ran a number of tests and no stone however I did have a kidney infection and they gave me antibiotics and sent me home.

Avatar n tn I've been experiencing some odd symptoms over the past few years and they have since gotten worse and now concerning to me. My vision is constanly bothering me and I have a hard time focusing on words when reading. In the past I've had spells of blurred vision followed by a lathargic state and then a pounding headache. This headache sometimes lasted for more than 24 hours. About 3 years ago, I had an MRI done and all came back clear.
