Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis blood supply

pancreatitis

Avatar n tn When I sit it feels like the blood supply or something (like when your foot goes to sleep) to my abdomen is being cut off and this is causing more and more damage. What is being missed here? Not sure how much more weight I can lose. Should point out that I have completely quit alcohol for 5 months now.
Avatar n tn My dog had acute pancreatitis over the weekend and I took him to an emergency vet on Sunday and to his vet on Mon. They both kept him overnight, IV, blood work, meds, and his vet did a rectal x-ray and abdominal x-ray with barium to look for obstruction. He found dirt/sand. My dog ate cat poop covered in dirt. He is at home now doing fine and I have him on a bland diet of canned white chicken and brown rice only. However, his lower abd/belly is a little distended and hard.
Avatar f tn I haven't been back in the hospital since the beginning of September for the gallstone and the pancreatitis (that is what the GI dr. are calling it) but I'm still having a lot of stomach pain and problems. If you all didn't know, in August I went to my pain management dr. and told him the vicodin wasn't holding the pain. At that time he gave me Opana 10mg long term and break through pain meds. I found the Opana to be a pretty good pain control, but it was also over 80.
Avatar n tn When I sit it feels like my blood supply to my abdomen or something is being restricted somehow. This has caused many chronic complications. Doctors have no answers for me. Does this sound familiar to anyone??
1916673 tn?1420236870 When an organ, tissue or system is injured, diseased or traumatized, the LDH normally employed by that part of the body will leak into the blood supply. This will create a raised LDH result in the blood test. On its own, this result tells a vet that something is wrong, but it does not identify where or what the problem might be. LDH can also rise due to acute pancreatitis, some malignant tumors, strenuous exercise, hemolytic anemias and heart disease.

Avatar n tn The common causes for vomiting are gastroenteritis (infection), gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, systemic infections, appendicitis, intracranial hypertension, hepatitis, eating disorders, inner ear disorders, and certain medications. Angina or chest pain due to inadequate supply of blood to the heart muscle can produce atypical symptoms of vomiting. This is diagnosed with an EKG or treadmill test. Lung infections like pneumonia and bronchitis can irritate the diaphragm and cause vomiting.
Avatar f tn But since her blood tests and ultrasound report are normal certain other causes need to be considered. Angina or chest pain due to inadequate supply of blood to the heart muscle can produce atypical symptoms of vomiting. This is diagnosed with an EKG or treadmill test. Lung infections like pneumonia and bronchitis can irritate the diaphragm and cause vomiting. Pancreatitis is another entity diagnosed by blood tests and ultrasound. Renal stones can cause vomiting and pain.
Avatar m tn My husband is a type I diabetic, a complication of pancreatitis he suffered a decade ago. His believes his insulin is not working at night when he sleeps. Can this be explained why insulin that works during the day does not seem to work at night?
Avatar n tn Hi, gangrene happens when a body part loses its blood supply. This may happen from injury, an infection, or other causes. Your grandmother has had gangrene of the gallbladder. And the gangrenous part needs to be removed, otherwise it can lead to life threatening infections. The fluid draining could be that which has accumulated. Once it completely drains and under cover of antibiotics she should recover. Good luck with her therapy. Regards.
Avatar f tn Neither of these cases is a significant problem as long as there is no interference with blood supply, venous drainage or with the ureter. " Source: http://www.med.mun.ca/anatomyts/renal/akid6.htm A this point, your symptoms may not be due to this structural anomaly. Do you experience any severe abdominal pain, fever ,nausea and vomiting? When you say amylase, you are referring to pancreatic amylase?
Avatar m tn Hello, Abdominal pain that comes on suddenly suggests a sudden event, for example, the interruption of the supply of blood to the colon (ischemia) or obstruction of the bile duct by a gallstone (biliary colic). What makes the pain worse? Pain due to inflammation (appendicitis, diverticulitis, cholecystitis, pancreatitis) typically is aggravated by sneezing, coughing or any jarring motion. Patients with inflammation as the cause of their pain prefer to lie still.

1806721 tn?1554337007 while infarction can be painful it may not be of vital importance unless severe of involving the GI as well which may need to be kept high in suspicion due to a common blood supply. The omental infarction does not increase the risk of GI inflammation. If the pain is severe, it would be advised to visit the ER for appropriate pain management. I would also recommend seeing a gastroenterologist for a lower GI evaluation and suggestion of a specific management plan. Hope this is helpful.
254215 tn?1195096984 Posting again, and I apologize! I had earlier posts about my dog having pancreatitis. Well, she is much better, but the vet noticed jaundice in her eyes today. He did blood tests and the liver enzymes were so high the machine wouldn't register them. She doesn't seem to have a bacterial infection he said. So here's my new question, is liver failure basically a death senetence? She is acting so much better, almost normal, but not quite. He hasn't specified a cause or anything.
Avatar n tn It could be due to gallbladder disease or pancreatitis. Other possible causes of include bowel obstruction, inflammation of the stomach and small intestines from an unrelated source as well as an unrelated intestinal infection. You will need to consult your treating doctor, who may run blood and urine tests and may sometimes ask for an ultra sonography to detect the cause for the vomiting. . Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Fish body oil, such as salmon oil (not cod liver oil), and antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, beta carotene, and selenium, may help reduce the risk of acute pancreatitis. Dogs with chronic pancreatitis can be deficient in B vitamins, so a B-complex supplement is also recommended. -------- Hoping that helps a little. I'll be back with more later.
Avatar m tn I suggest you talk to your husband’s gastroenterologist and see whether causes such as IBS, Crohn’s celiac disease, ulcerative colitis, food allergies, chronic pancreatitis, gall stones, kidney stones, common bile duct stones etc have been looked into. Another possibility is chronic ischemia or low blood supply to mesentry—tissue that holds the intestine together. Take care!
Avatar f tn For instance, severe inflammation of organs inside the body such as acute pancreatitis can cause low blood pressure. In acute pancreatitis, fluid leaves the blood vessels to enter the inflamed tissues around the pancreas as well as the abdominal cavity, depleting the volume of blood. There can be kidney problems, etc.
Avatar n tn Pancreatitis calls for some strong pain meds. When my dog had it, the vet used a 75 mcg fentanyl patch. This medication is also used for people who have chronic pain. It's simply a gel-filled patch that stays on for 3 days, and dispenses a constant supply of medication during that time. They also used hydromorphone (dilaudid) for breakthrough pain when the patch wasn't enough. These opiate medications are VERY strong, and will have a sedative effect on your dog - just like with people.
Avatar m tn Blue periphries mean insufficient blood supply to the peripheries by the heart because of some pathology of the heart.You need investigations like ECG,stress echo and color Doppler. Pls take an appointment from a cardiologist and get yourself thoroughly examined so that a confirmatory diagnosis can be made. Treatment will depend on the diagnosis. Please abstain from cigarette smoking as it is injurious to health. Take care and do keep us posted.
1469903 tn?1286650297 Diabetes accelerates hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) of the larger blood vessels, leading to coronary heart disease (angina or heart attack), strokes, and pain in the lower extremities because of lack of blood supply (claudication). • Eye Complications • The major eye complication of diabetes is called diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy occurs in patients who have had diabetes for at least five years.
Avatar n tn My blood counts are very seriously out of wack. My pancreatitis sometimes shows itself in blood work and sometimes does not. I have recently had a positive test for Lupus. How common is it for these things to occur together and do you have any suggestions based on your past cases? I am grasping at straws! I rarely eat and when I do it is to keep away from TPN.. I am getting close to allowing them to use TPN and would like any suggestions I can get.
Avatar n tn Left lower lobe pmeumonia and ischemia (low oxygen supply) to mesyentry of intestines and pancreatitis too can at times present with a pain in left side under the rib. This needs a more detailed investigation. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your mother and doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining and various tests. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn My dog Dizzy showing signs of Cushings she drinks a lot, is not as frisky as she was, has a hard pot belly and a bald patch on her tail these physical signs and the blood test lead my vet to strongly suspect Cushings and he has suggested a more extreme but definative tests and the on going life long treatment would be lysodren. I have insurance but it only covers up to £500 vet costs including treaments for a year after diagnosis then stops!!
Avatar n tn It is going to be the end of May before they can get me in to do this test. My question, how long does it take before my stomach being cut off from the blood supply is going to die. The attitude of these surgeons is really disturbing me. Why did my esophagus shortened (was the wrap too tight). Should I seek a third opinion not associate with this major teaching hospital? Thank you!
Avatar m tn Bile secreted from the gallbladder into the intestine is a very dark green liquid made up of many chemicals, one of which is bilirubin. When red blood cells are destroyed naturally in the body, the hemoglobin, a protein inside the red blood cells that carries oxygen, is modified in the liver. The by-product of this process is bilirubin, and the liver secretes the bilirubin into bile.

Avatar n tn Portal hypertension leads to enlarged spleen and collateral veins that reroute the blood supply around that usually goes through the liver. These collateral veins are called varices. If the portal hypertension gets to high the veins can burst casing vomiting or defecating of blood. Which can be life threatening. This only occurs in people with very advanced liver disease. Called decompensated cirrhosis. Which for a hepatologist and some gastroenterologists is easy to diagnose.

Angina or chest pain due to inadequate supply of blood to the heart muscle can produce atypical symptoms of vomiting. This is diagnosed with an EKG or treadmill test.
