pancreatitis

Avatar f tn I had Pancreatitis,,,,,,, My GI doctor told me to cut back on all Carbohydrates... eat mostly lean meat,, lots of veggies and very small amounts of fruits... only about 20 grams of carbs per day, not processed.. Veggies have carbs but on a smaller level then a piece of whole wheat bread. Also be mindful of the drinks, no sugar is allowed , I drink mostly diet drinks, water, and equal in my coffee.
Avatar n tn Very good recovery given that you avoid any alcohol intake, that includes mouthwash and nyquil. Also a low fat high carb diet is the best for this disease.
Avatar n tn about 4 weeks ago i had to take my mom to the ER because she was suffering from severe stomachache. It turned out to be acute pancreatitis. She was admitted in the hospital and stayed there for 3 weeks. She's been out of the hospital for 2 days. I am really worried because she looks really tired and she says that she has stomach pain as if it was sored. I wanted to know if these are normal symptoms after an acute pancreatitis ?.
Avatar f tn She thought she had the flu for over two weeks, she went to the ER and was admitted for acute pancreatitis. She stayed in the hospital for 2 weeks. Ellie is a vegan so her diet was optimal to start with. After a month or two things settled back into normal and then she had another episode in October/11. Scans and tests do not reveal any stones or blocked ducts but 1/3 of her pancreas is necrotic. She was a healthy 25 yr old that by her own admission did drink beer and or wine but not to excess.
Avatar n tn ) If open, then the hospital stay is a few days, with a total healing time of at least 6 weeks, since they not only cut the organ, they also have to cut through your abdominal muscles. In the meantime, avoid ALL fats. All. Eat a very simple, very bland diet, and do everything possible to get yourself into surgery as soon as you can. Good luck.
793908 tn?1294708709 If she's eating the Hills I/D (that's the prescription diet the vet recommended after her pancreatitis attack?) without any problems, then that's good. Stick to it. Don't worry about giving her different tastes and flavours at the moment. She is getting all she needs from the food. Dogs aren't quite like us about their food. What seems boring to us, they are happy with.
Avatar m tn If it is chronic pancreatitis, will it by definition worsen over the months or years or can it stay stable if I stay on a healthy diet, avoid alcohol, etc.??? Any advice appreciated. I do realize that I likely need to get back to the GP, but I'm most curious as to whether chronic pancreatitis ALWAYS worsens no matter what. I'm 46 and want to of course stay healthy in the second half of life.
Avatar n tn All you can do is treat the pain and nausea, avoid all alcohol, and really cut down on fat in your diet. As you've already discovered, pancreatitis is an extremely difficult disease to treat. You'll need to keep up with your gastro doc. Probably add on a pain management doc. And definitely consider seeing a pain psychologist so you can learn how to live with pain on a long-term basis without constantly having to increase narcotics. That's about it. I'm really sorry this has happened.
1264088 tn?1279484422 ERCP r not favored here in Calgary , as they can cause more damage making you sicker. Enzyemes really help with digestion, low fat diet, avoid triggers. There is a group on FB living with CP, there is 200 strong. My GI is DR. C Cleary, in Calgary ..
902019 tn?1249865014 I was diagnosed 2 years ago with AIP, have a 25 year history of autoimmune disorders (eosinophilic vasculitis, mild Sjogren's). Usually have done well with prednisone for the various flare-ups but with AIP, still recurring symptoms and the elevated IgG4 periodically. Next step may be Imuran. Is there anyone out there who has had good results with Imuran for autoimmune pancreatitis?
Avatar n tn I have a friend that has gastroparesis, diabetes, pancreatitis, pyloric stenosis everything she eats makes her sick, and her stomach swells up bigger than the size of a basketball, could you please tell me what foods she should stay away from...
Avatar n tn I have searched and searched the internet for a no fat diet to fight acute pancreatitis. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
Avatar n tn Cindy, The diet necessary for pancreatitis is simply a strict low-fat diet. No oils used in cooking, no red meats due to their high fat content, no alcohol, avoid refined sugars, white flour and white rice, no fried foods. Use no or low fat substitutes for any dairy products, egg beaters for eggs (no yolks), no nuts. Fish, chicken and turkey can be baked, grilled, boiled or sauted, using small quantities of Pam or a similar spray.
Avatar n tn Since you have reactive hypoglycemia, you need to eat frequent small meals, avoid alcohol or take it moderately with food, and avoid high sugar diet. Consult an Endocrine specialist to manage this. So, when you meet the gastroenterologist, please discuss all these possibilities. A doctor who can examine you may be able to find valuable clinical signs which may help clinch the diagnosis. Also, tests done to rule out the above mentioned conditions will help reach a diagnosis.
Avatar f tn fevers with frequent visits to the docs (glandular fever diagnosed) he got worse and in hospital his lipase levels were initially 1200 and rose to 3000 he was on tube feeding (didn't stop the pain) and later tpn which helped. His lipase are around 170 last check he has been sent home with low fat diet (he lost 12.5 kilo's in hospital) . He is still having severe stomach pains.
Avatar m tn I find these help alot to keep the pain under control, but I also have to control my diet and avoid fatty foods and wheat products. I am still under investigation and seeking a second opinion to get a definate diagnosis. Best of luck for the future. I hope you eventually find a cure.
Avatar f tn It seems like I have a problem if I eat too much fat, or not enough. I can't seem to get my diet right in order to correct my system. It seems like what I eat has an effect but I can't seem to predict what is going to work and what won't. Has anybody else had this issue? Any suggestions on how much fat to eat? I'm desperate for my body to equal itself out.
Avatar m tn He was seen by a Physician Assistant and once heart problems were ruled out, an abnormal lipase value suggested pancreatitis. The doctor then gave him a chalky-drink (not sure what it was as I had stepped out of the room) and repeated the lipase test 3 hours later as well as provided a chest x-ray. The chest x-ray came back clean, and the lipase result had gone back down to normal, and therefore he was swiftly discharged from emerg without much direction from the PA.
Avatar n tn I do not understand why anyone would ingest Olive Oil seeing how high in fat it is, if they have any form of pancreatitis. The diet is that of a low fat one. I myself try not to consume more than 25 grams of fat daily. I do not believe in these "flushes" for any organs in the body. If they were helpful, doctors would be perscribing them and doing them. I am all for helping oneself if that is possible. But I am in enough pain with this.
Avatar f tn I give you all this background because in August of this year, I developed pancreatitis. Pain I had NEVER known! I went around for almost 2 months going from doctor to doctor (including my own gastroenterologist) and all blamed it on acid reflux. I kept putting my foot down because I know what acid reflux feels like and this pain was not indicative of acid reflux. Finally, I was referred to a gastroenterologist who was famous in the Dallas area for performing successful ERCPs.
Avatar f tn No one disagrees that you can lose on a 500 cal diet with ow without HCG, but you have to look at the whole picture. How do you feel on the diet? Can you stick with the diet? Can you maintain your weight afterwards? 3 months ago, before I heard about HCG I attempted a 500 Calorie diet to reduce the affects of RA(Rhuematoid Arthritis). Actually I wanted to FAST because having been under a 14 day medically supervised fast (water only) 3 years ago, I knew what miraculous results I got.
Avatar f tn A partial answer, since I don't know all of what you have to avoid, would be that a diet based on the whole foods concept should help some. The whole foods concept is based on the idea of eating foods as close to how you get them from nature as possible without processing them. Going gluten free has helped several of my conditions, including pre-diabetes. I went gluten free for other health reasons and had many benefits.
Avatar f tn 3 months back my husband( aged 31 yrs) was diagonosed with acute severe pancreatitis. he was kept in intensive care for 7 days and then moved to the general ward where he spent 8 days more (diet was fluids). on his discharge the abdominal usg suggested a diffusely enlarged pancreas that showed hypoechoic echotexture; thin strip of reactionary fluid were noted along anterior border of pancreas and lasser sac and fluid collection in left paracolic gutter.
Avatar n tn faecal elastase test which was in the normal range 230 normal pancreatic function (>200 ug/g) (norm range between 200-500 ug/g) what does it seem like whats going on? how are acalculous cholecystitis/gallbladder dyskinesisi caused?
Avatar n tn The anesthesiologist thanked me for the heads up. You want to avoid a Pancreatitis attack at all cost. Good luck TazLady! I'll be thinking about you. Have you on my IM list and keep waiting for you to on there to say hello. I'm going back in the hospital on the 18th for some pretty evasive surgery. Will be in the hospital a minimum of 3 to 4 days and then out of work 4 to 6 weeks recooperating. Hang in there. I'll be thinking about you.
Avatar n tn Thats why I now how chronic pancreatitis. My advice is for you to adhear to a low fat diet, avoid all alcohol (including nyquil, o'douls, etc.) and avoid as much stress as possible. You will get through this. My first dr. told me thre was nothing wrong with me. This included when I was in the hospital the first time and my levels were elevated and the ct scan showed a "plump pancreas". He was a jerk and I quickley disposed of him.
936335 tn?1246415831 Your symptoms could be SO many things including microscopic sludge/stones in the common bile duct, gallbladder problems, Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction, Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth, acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, autoimmune pancreatitis, mininal change chronic pancreatitis, etc., etc., etc. Pancreatic and ductal pain is among the most horrendous pain there is. If you cannot manage your pain, talk to your primary care physician and ask for some medication!
Avatar f tn 8 (worse than original). Her diet started out as Hills diet G/D (not K/D because of her pancreatitis). She has lost ~4.5 pounds since she was diagnosed. I have tried a homecooked diet specialized for kidney failure while also considering her pancreatitis. Still struggling to get her to eat. Does anyone have any pointers on how to handle this?
Avatar f tn After my gallbladder was removed I developed acute pancreatitis, now almost 2 yrs later I have chronic pancreatitis and insulin dependant as my pancreas has stopped working, but it sure hurts. Blood/lab tests will show lipase and amylase. CT scan would help diagnos other problems.
Avatar n tn two months ago i started to have ruq pain with nausea i went to the ER and they did the usual blood test and CT scan they told me i had pancreatitis to go on a pure liquid diet and the pain will go away in a few days. about a week later i ended back in the ER for the same problem they also did the CT scan and found that i did not have pancreatitis if i did i would be laying in a hospital room.
