Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis blood lipids

pancreatitis

Avatar f tn (not my insurer). From their CT scan I was told I had pancreatitis, lipids and amylase where also high. I followed up with my insurance provider's GI specialist and an ultrasound, they were unable to provide me with any diagnosis..
Avatar n tn gall stones blocking the duct where it opens into the duodenum alcoholism trauma - bullet or knife wound duodenal ulcer hyperparathyroidism - over active parathyroid glands hyperlipidaemia - abnormally high levels of lipids such as cholesterol in the blood viral infection certain drugs such as corticosteroids and thiazide diuretics. The main symptom of pancreatitis is severe abdominal pain that is sudden in onset and continuous.
Avatar n tn Also my first blood test no raise in any lipids or amalyse and post 4 days later blood test were normal. I'm really confused!
Avatar n tn He was tested for everything possible at that time including endoscopy, blood tests, CT scan, X-rays, colonoscopy, liver profile, and even EKG and angiogram to check for heart diseases. The doctors found nothing abnormal. He was prescribed some strong antacids with the assumption that it was some form of gastritis. Since then he has had severe attacks 4-5 times in the last 2.5 years. Almost always its the same - severe abdominal pain, and of late he also gets high fevers with them.
Avatar n tn Hi, Hyperlipidemia is increased fats or lipids in the bloodstream. Fatty molecules are transported in a protein capsule, and the density of the lipids and type of protein determines the fate of the particle and its influence on metabolism. This condition may be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease or acute pancreatitis. You can read ore about this through this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperlipidemia Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn 1. Steroids, mumps, Epstein Barr Virus and Cytomegalovirus, Lupus and other immune diseases, very high calcium, lipids and triglycerides, drugs: sulfa drugs, steroids, NSAID use, diuretics, duodenal ulcer, diabetic drugs especially Byetta. The drugs could be a problem for both the pancrease and liver too. If you have been taking Byetta for diabetis it is very important to get treatment for that right away. I would say there is cause for concern but you are getting it checked out.
Avatar f tn I had a cholecystectomy in December 2009. Severe pain emerged in February and was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Since that time, I have had 3 "attacks" that strongly mimiced a heart attack - sudden and excruciating pain in upper abdomin and right under the sternum with profuse sweating and extreme drop in blood pressure (80/60!
Avatar f tn Get your serum calcium and lipid profile done to see if high calcium and lipids are a cause of pancreatitis. For more information please refer: http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/pancreatitis/ Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn I recently had a bout of acute pancreatitis that resolved in about 2-3 days. I had been eating a pretty high fat diet for a few days and was taking tylenol 3 for a dental procedure. AP was verified via CT w/contrast but my panc enzymes remained normal throughout the attack. I am concerened that the attack may be a sign of a cronic conditon due to my previous history of alchohol. The CT scan did not show anything other than the hazy pancreas, impression pancreatitis.
Avatar f tn I dont drink and my liver, thyroid,electrolytes,blood sugar, kidney and blood cell counts were all normal. Anyone have any idea what this could be?
Avatar m tn He got sent to a specialist (great doc!) They have done all sorts of blood tests including a blood test for pancreatic cancer (thankfully negative) and the MRCP with no success. He has none of the prerequisites for pancreantitis. We were told that in 30% of the cases there is no reason and can go away on it's own (bad news is because a cause is never found it can come back too).
Avatar f tn I had acute pancreatitis, but that has been taken care of per the results below, however the symptoms persist. Besides the yellowish skin and eyes, I also experience gas, bloating/ stomach distention, sometimes slight pain under right rib cage and food intolerances to wheat, gluten and glucose/sugars. Here is what my lab results have been so far - COMPLETE METBOLIC PANEL Normal B12 levels Normal Folate and Iron levels Low Vitamin D levels @ 18.

Avatar f tn Thanks now that I am finished with treatment I hope my triglycerides go down fast. Pancreatitis was a worry there at the end of treatment and the blood count dropped, but with prayer I hope all the bloodwork will come back improved. I will get new blood work next month.
Avatar n tn Since triglyceride levels increase during the normal pregnancy, I am worried about complications such as pancreatitis. There do not appear to be many studies relating to hyperlipidemia medications and their affect on the fetus. What are the risks? treatments? success rates?
Avatar n tn I do feel better when I massage my back so I think you are right about getting massages for my muscle knots. I have a blood test in a month so hopefully everything I've been doing so far has improved my results (HDL levels/triglycerides/weight/blood pressure/fatty liver/back muscles/etc.). I'll report back with those results. Hopefully there will be nothing "new" (in a bad way) to report until then. :) Thanks again for the reply.
Avatar m tn implications for long-term follow-up. Gastrointestinal Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital Abstract Hepatitis C associated hypolipidemia has been demonstrated in studies from Europe and Africa. In two linked studies, we evaluated the relationship between hepatitis C infection and treatment with lipid levels in an American cohort and determined the frequency of clinically significant posttreatment hyperlipidemia.
Avatar f tn I am 30 years old and have been on statins since I was 7 to try and control the elevated LDL and triglycerides in my blood - which so far cannot be managed by diet and exercise alone. My mother had her first heart attack before she was 30 and had angioplasty when she was 45, my uncle passed away at 33 from a massive heart attack and my aunt had a 7 artery bypass when she was 40. Metabolic syndrome also seems to go hand in hand with this disorder and most of the people in my family have it.
Avatar n tn ) or gut can cause neurological symptoms when they reach the blood. 2. The fact that the pain is mostly in the forearms and shins have any relevance? 3. What test might be usefull looking for a systemic agent causing this type of response. Any help is greatly appreaciated. Dear Sudhir: Sorry to hear about your problems. Do you know the etiology of your liver failure? What viral etiologies of liver failure have they ruled out?
Avatar n tn - ultrasound of the neck (all clear) - ct scan of the head (all clear) - numerous blood tests.. eg. calcium, b12, iron studies.. all of which were fine.. which seems to indicate that i'm not suffering malabsorption. - anti-gliadian was fine.. so celiac disease is unlikely.. although my doctor is following this up with anti-endoysmial (?) tests. i am also going to be tested shortly with a 3 day faecal fat study, fasting lipids and a sweat test (for cystic fibrosis i believe).
Avatar n tn My high lipids are not genetic ......... I just happen to be one of those folks who manufactures a heck of a lot more then I need. I have a liver profile done (along with the lipid check and A1C for the diabetes) every 3 months and so far all is good. I do watch my diet (not excessively though), exercise 3 days per week and TRY to keep stress to a minimum (not really successful with that). Sorry for such a long post ..........
Avatar n tn I would like to obtain as much information as possible concerning hemangiona (Blood Vessel Tumor) in the liver. My wife has been diagnosed with leisions (3)in the liver and the latest concern is with possible hemangiona in the capsule of the liver. Specifics are requested. Her symptoms to this date were severe abdominal pain (6 weeks ago) 12 days hospitalization with no procedures. Be rest and pain medication. Was taken off estrogen replacement therapy.
Avatar n tn I don't know what to attribute my recent Gout episode to. I had blood work from 4 weeks earlier and my uric acid level was well within normal limits. I'm sure you've read the same stuff I have about food triggering an episode. Two days before the Gout really started I had eaten sausage which I very rarely eat. That is the only thing I can think of. I treated with Prednisone because my transplant team ruled out the other common treatments. It resolved within 1.
Avatar n tn Lipitor may not be enough to control the triglycerides and you may need to see a specialist in blood lipids. I hope you find this information useful.

238668 tn?1232735930 I'm a healthy, athletic, 40 year old woman (non smoker, non drinker and underweight for my height). I just had my blood lipids measured for the first time and was told everything was fine. But when I asked for the numbers, my physician said: TC 150, HDL 40, ratio: 308 and TG 500!! I freaked out but he said there was nothing to worry about and simply suggested my having a retest in 2 weeks. I don't have a family history of premature CHD and I don't know what to do with this information.

Avatar m tn Chronic cervicitis and cervical cancer, ulcerative colitis and colorectal cancer, pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer, skin inflammation and skin cancer, esophagitis and esophageal cancer, and hepatitis and liver cancer are a few examples (Table 1). Table 1: Chronic inflammatory diseases and associated cancers.In the oral cavity, periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the structures around teeth associated with dental biofilm [19].
233616 tn?1312790796 ) but the IGF-1 is easy to measure, an inexpensive blood test, and it's level indicated if any GH had been prodiced in the last 24 hrs. If you have trouble sleeping or dreaming it's quite possible you are low on this hormone. If you have autoimmune stuff, or trouble healing or exaustion same thing. Thyroid, arthritis, vitilago, fibromyalgia, even MS, where the body attacks the nerve sheath, and many more things are directly related.
