Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis diet for


Avatar n tn I am undergoing treatment for pancreatitis, I am 29 yrs old and not an alcoholic. What precautions I should take while undergoing treatment ? what are the chances of recovering from this disease?
Avatar f tn also take 3000 to 4000mg omega -3- you will lose wt on this diet for sure. make sure you eat protein at every meal to help keep you muscle.
Avatar n tn Was it said, what was the cause of pancreatitis? Was she nourished through nasoduodenal tube in the hospital? She should avoid fatty and acidic food for a while and she has to drink enough - plain water or tea. With enough I mean the amount which will result in amount of morning urine she usually excretes. You might want to call the doctor and ask for appropriate diet for her.
Avatar m tn For the past few months (3-4), I have had epigastric discomfort. It is not excruciating, it is a mild burning, gnawing ache. It feels like it radiates to the back on the left side, but I also have herniated disks throughout my spine. My dr said she thinks it's GERD and to try proton pump inhibitors. I must admit they help slightly, however I still have this pain that is constant all day long.
Avatar n tn Hi and thanks for your response! I am eating a very low fat diet. In fact I haven't branched out much with my diet as I'm afraid of another attack. I dont know if it was the chicken breast or maybe the overactivity but ended up in the hospital a couple of weeks ago with elevated amylase and lipase. The removal of the gallbladder really set things off for me. I am taking Pancrealipase with all my meals now & try to eat every few hours as I've lost almost 20 pounds in the last six weeks.
Avatar n tn I was hospitalized on Dec 10th 2013 with Pancreatitis and was in there until January 5th 2014. I am home and was released with a Picc line with TPN (nutrition supplement) because I needed complete gut rest. I am now off the TPN, but I still don't feel complete. I wear out real fast when I do things around the house and I just don't feel good sometimes. I am still experiencing some swelling of the pancreas area, but nothing painful. Is this normal???
719251 tn?1230344505 My mother has been suffering from Pancreatitis for the past 4months. She has been in hospital three times with severe pain, vomitting, and fluid in the abdominal. In that time she has lots over 25kg. She is 60 years old but since loosing so much weight she looks like 80 years old. She no longer drinks but continues to smoke. What worries me the most is that she eats very tiny amount of food, she vomitts everyday and she is just not getting any better.
Avatar n tn My dog just got over a bought with pancreatitis. It hurt her liver and she is on liver pills right now. She is totally back to her old self now though! So it is possible to recover. Didn't you say your dog is back to her oldself? I don't understand why you would euthanize her if she is. Maybe I miss-read your post.....
Avatar n tn Pats, make sure they check for autoimmune pancreatitis. It's something that's 'on the rise,' but many docs don't seem to think to test for it. In addition, make sure your gallbladder is checked out. When the GB starts having problems it can take the 'pancreas down' and cause symptoms the doc attribute only to the pancreas. Before starting to think the worst, make sure you rule out other issues.
Avatar n tn Can the medicine Zanaflex cause Pancreatitis? I have looked up information on this med and it states that 1 out of 20 patients could develop liver damage. I was diagnosed with Pancreatitis on 10/14/08. I had never had it in my life. I am afraid this medicine has caused it. I have never ever picked up any type of drink other than diet pepsi and jucie. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am so scared and hurting.
Avatar n tn have any of you discussed with your doctors the possible cause for the pancreatitis in your specific case? Nanny, you answered my question in a general way a short while back (thanks, I appreciate it), but I wondered if anyone would care to share what the specific cause(s) might have been in their individual case. Thanks.
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 It is also frustrating that I was doing fine for a while and now the problems are coming back. Do you actually have pancreatitis? Chronic or acute attacks?
Avatar f tn My little Poodle Julie just had her 3rd attack of Pancreatitis...all within 7 mos. time. Each time it was back to the Vets for 4 day stay there & IV treatments. It gets outrageous on what I am charged each time. This time, they said her attack wasn't as severe as the others & I took her home tonight..after her being there for 27 hours, I was outrageously charged $1,036.25. I took her home with amoxicillin only..7 tablets for 25.00.
Avatar n tn 5/12/09 i was rushed to the ER after about 4 an hour of the worse pain imaginable, i had this same attack 3 other times, same symptons vomitting severe pain in my abdomain all the way to my back we have to great hospital here but each time they would say you pulled some thing give a couple shots and perscriptions this last time i went buy ambulance i was so out of it they just took me to the other one i got in the they got the info of what was happening ran a x ray drew blood and then did a cat
Avatar n tn place your fingertips under the lowest point of the right rib cage and press up and in and hold it for about 5-10 seconds. I'm not sure why this works for me, but give it try and see if it helps you. Also for more info you may want to to look at the Gastroenterology forum.
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 n tn You should add probiotics to her diet also. Don't change her diet for at least one month, than add additions very very slowly.
1300834 tn?1273126954 My own personal opinion of prescription diets is that they aren't formulated for chronic conditions, whether for pancreatitis, kidne failure or anything else. They really should really only be used for short-term, acute problems rather than a chronic illness. Read the label on the prescription food and compare it to ingredients in other high-quality foods like Evo. If your dog does fine on a quality commercial food, that's great! If not, you'll need to supplement with vitamin tablets.
Avatar n tn Anyway, the only reason I mention this story is because your dog at 14 is doing great! It's not easy for any dog to recover this quickly from acute pancreatitis, but for a senior dog to come out of it so well is truly remarkable! I wouldn't push any new foods too quickly. His pancreas is still probably bubbling away angrily, and you don't want to aggravate it any more than necessary.
Avatar f tn Your Triglycerides are higher then average and indicate to much fat in your diet. Again, that can also be managed along with a healthier diet. Heart Palpitations can have a variety of reasons. Sometimes anxiety and stress can play a part. Certain meds and even Caffiene can raise your heart rate. As Lynn stated, seeing a trusted Dr would be your next step to rule out disease.
Avatar n tn I posted couple of weeks ago . I went to the Er on 3-11 & was admitted for 4 days for pancreatits with mildly elevated Lipase (28) & a -sudden- severe pain in upper right quadrant(close to breastbone) that went straight thru to the back that was excruciating after eating that night. I also have ongoing pain in my back and a 'shooting & spasiming pain ' thats tolerable for now directly in my left ribs.
Avatar m tn Make sure you're checked for autoimmune pancreatitis. In addition, since you have diabetes, rule out the possibility of celiac disease. Research has suggested that there could be a tie-in between diabetes and celiac disease in some cases.
Avatar n tn , lethargic, sterrorhea, and one particular episode where I had an electric shock feeling in my mid abdemon for several seconds. After this moment, I felt horrible with moderate left side discomfort and generally feeling like I had the flu. Having an MRI which didn't reveal anything significant, I later went for EUS. Doctor indicated CP and life began with Creon. I have taken max levels of Creon 24K x 8/meal and sterrorhea remains.
Avatar f tn That can only be done in the hospital. I had pancreatitis and was hospitalized for 8 days before the enzymes were low enough for me to leave. They did stay just above normal for two more weeks. Perhaps your enzyme level isn't high enough to require treatment yet. I would keep up on this and see your doctor again soon if the pain continues.
Avatar f tn I just got out of the hospital, diagonosed with gallstones and pancreatitis. Doc said I will need to have gallbladder removed. I have been reserching some on the internet and I have a few concerns. Me- 39 year old Female, 214 pounds (ugh), otherwise healthy and active, Vegatarian diet- No meats, No fried foods!! First off, I am pretty sure I got the gallstones from doing too many fasting cleanses! The first few attacks I had was during a cleanse!
Avatar n tn my dog recently suffered from a bout of pancreatits and was hospitalized for 3 days, she has been home now for 5 days but is still sluggish, has very little apetite, and still has vomited 3 times since she has been home, she is drinking regularly and urinating normally but her stool is runny and yellowish.
Avatar m tn The rash was so pronounced and severe looking (though minimal discomfort) that all of the physician attention was spent on it. I was referred to a dermatologist who treated me (with an antibiotic and cortisone cream) for pityriasis rosea. Basically I was told that I would have to ride it out and it would last about 12 weeks....and that it is generally due to an unknown infection. The dermatologist was took about 12 weeks to clear up.
Avatar n tn I know there are future surgeries I WILL have to have. I will be on medication for the rest of my life too. I will have to follow a special diet for the rest of my life. Pancreatitis is NOTHING to fool around with and don't fool yourself that you will "get over this" one day. It does stick with you for the rest of your life. HOWEVER...I am not so sick EVERYDAY that I can't get out of bed, do my daily routine, take care of my family.
