pancreatitis

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 m tn I watch my diet and exercise been through many blood tests for fatty liver ext and nothing.
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 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 n tn I am healthy and the only major illess that I ever had was pancreatitis,one time 4 years ago, which I was hospitalized for. The doctoras could never find any reason for it and I do not drink or do drugs.It got better on it's own and I have not been bothered with it since. 6 weeks ago I embarked on a high protein diet with very controlled carbohydrates. The carbohydrates could be eaten once a day, with protein and low carb vegetables twice a day, and not much snacking.

Avatar f tn Since you are overweight it is advised to decrease your weight. Follow a healthy diet and exercise daily. Hope it helped. Best luck and regards!
Avatar f tn My 6 year old lab was diagnosed with pancreatitis 10 days ago. Her symptoms came on suddenly. Because she was not throwing up and still drinking water, the vet sent her home with antibiotics and pain meds. The decision to not hospitalize her was also based on cost. Initially she seemed to get better. However, her belly is swollen again and she is not eating well at all. Her swollen belly is my biggest concern. Why would it do that again even though she just finished her medication.
Avatar n tn You are at risk for diabetes given your personal and family history, but if your blood sugars are now normal I would suggest instead trying to stay with diet and exercise as much as possible to lose the weight. That is likely also the best option for staving off possible diabetes in the future. Good luck, please ask further questions if you wish. Again I apologize for the delayed response.
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 Treatment for patients who have pancreatitis due to high triglyceride levels includes weight loss, exercise, eating a low fat diet, controlling blood sugar, and avoiding alcohol and medications that can raise triglycerides (eg: thiazide diuretics and beta-blockers). 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.
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?
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 It's hard to assess exactly what the problem is, but the safest thing to do is start with adjusting your diet (this means cutting back on the alcohol intake), increasing exercise, and practicing some deep breathing. I hope this helps and things fare well for you!
Avatar n tn I found that if i do VERY intense exercise I can numb the pain but it often comes back to bite me and hurts even more after i'm exhausted and can't exert myself anymore. Once or twice the pain has spread upwards towards my chest and heart - which was very concerning. Can anyone give me any ideas as to what this could be? It's happening right now as we speak and I felt that before I go see my GP again maybe someone could give some idea as to what it could be.
1480957 tn?1287589424 Sometimes when the kidney is diseased they can't do their job of excreting creatinine. Rule out dehydration, too much exercise, pancreatitis, too much protein in the diet, bleeding within the intestine, hypothyroidism, adrenal cortical insufficiency, glomerulonephritis, amyloidosis, pyelonephritis, nephrosis, calcium nephropathy (also called lymphosarcoma), kidney cancer, and hydronephrosis. As far as I know, there is not a problem w/ the egfr as long as it is below 60.
Avatar m tn Chronic pancreatitis does not always have elevated liver levels. Most of the time they are normal even though some Drs will not agree. This could be the problem. I would visit the GI and see what they say . CT Scan does not always detect CP and sometimes an Endoscopic Ultrasound is needed to see minimal changes. You can get this scheduled with the GI Dr. Sometimes small changes are not even detected with this method but a more experienced DR can detect it.
Avatar m tn Even if she survived a bout of acute pancreatitis, she could end up with chronic pancreatitis and on an extreme lowfat diet for the rest of her life. For the poor dog's sake, I hope your boyfriend wakes up to reality before my mother-in-law did. Best of luck to you both.
Avatar n tn In some people medical treatment will need to be added to diet and exercise. Medical treatment of cholesterol includes resins which bind cholesterol, niacin, gemfibrazole (useful for elevated triglycerides) and statins (e.g. leschol, pravachol, mevacor, lipitor, baychol, zocor). All of the drugs except the resins may have a negative effect on the liver and liver function tests should be monitored. If there is an increase in the liver enzymes it is usually reversible if the drug is stopped.
Avatar n tn i dont drink no more or smoke, i know to try exercise lose weight and keep on a fat free diet for now, i have bought vit b complex,probiotic acidphilus tabs and lethicin suppliments today, i read it on a site, they are beneficial.
Avatar f tn My hair has almost grown all back, my vomiting as decreased to a minumal, and i am trying to formulate a chore list for me to use as a check off diet. I also want to add gradually as I know exercise is good for just about anything. I will promise myself t work each evening to get clothes away. I just getso tired of having to deal with it all. I have been told y tx was not successful, my frst 3 test were neg, last one positive. I had puemonia which why I might be so tired.
Avatar m tn I've been extremely active between the ages of 17-24, working out and following a strict diet. Recently, however, I gained weight due to being married and being unable to go thr gym as often as I used to. As a result, i decided to go back to thr gym last week and after doing an hour of low-impact cardio and weight lifting, the next few days I noticed I had muscle spasms across my upper abdomen.
Avatar m tn 5 170 pounds, light drinker, no recreational drugs, have a really good diet and get regular exercise. I enjoy coffee but have recently given it up and take tramadol for knee and joint pain which I think is related in some way. Any input would be much appreciated.
Avatar n tn Dear Chad, In the United States, alcohol is a very frequent cause of pancreatitis. The alcohol alters the secretion of pancreatic juice which results in the inflammation recognized as pancreatitis. Unfortunately, there is no amount of alcohol that I can tell you is safe, i.e. will not cause subsequent attacks of pancreatitis. We know that there is individual sensitivity. This means that an amount of alcohol that may not cause me problems may cause you to have severe pancreatitis.
Avatar f tn Also, with regards to the ultrasound, will going on a gall bladder conscious diet prior to the test ruin the tests efficacy? If I cut out all the trigger foods, will the test show as normal and prevent me from getting a needed diagnosis? I'm not sure how to proceed - any thoughts?
Avatar f tn I just cut it down to one pill because its causing me to gain weight. It is working, but only if I eat low carb, and exercise. I have to change my exercise due to my back, but I find ways and it works. I will tell you you have to get your sugars down before you will,start losing weight. I have learned this with my ups and downs how insulin resistance works. Read everything you can! You need to put yourself first! Stop smoking, with help from your DR. have water with you all the time.
Avatar n tn If you see someone who practices traditional western medicine, they will recommend eating a low fat diet that is low in refined sugar, low in alcohol, combined with routine exercise. high LDL and tg's don't always go together, it varies from person to person.
