Pancreatitis diet list

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis diet list


Avatar n tn Would pain due to pancreatitis be disabling in most cases? I am having post gallbladder removal problems, and I am concerned that my pain is due to pancreatitis? Had my surgery in June with a lot of problems afterwards. At one point I was diagnosed with a bile leak, and given antibiotics. After that I felt pretty good for several months, but now the pain has started again. I have a lot of pressure under my ribs, both sides. Stomach area is burning.
Avatar n tn And that is something to have checked especially if you have had 4 bouts of pancreatitis already. If you have Pancreatitis, it NEVER goes away once you have gone chronic. With 4 episodes under your belt, I would be surprised if you have not gone chronic yet. You titled this Severe Pancreatitis. It usually doesn't get to that stage without you being Chronic. The pancreas is an organ that DOES NOT rejuvinate itself. Once damaged it is damaged for life.
Avatar n tn A portion of her intestine was re-routed and attached to the psuedocyst to drain. She continued with severe pancreatitis and a month and a half later she uderwent another surgical procedure to open the pancreatic ducts to allow the fluid to flow. She had an amazing recovery and was eating and out of the hospital two weeks later. Now, one year later she is having another bout of pancreatitis and we are so scared.

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 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 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 There are many other causes of acute pancreatitis but they are less common.. I will list them for you.

Avatar n tn Hi, I was admitted in a hospital a week ago for acute pancreatitis and was discharged just after 30 hours. I was instructed to take Omeprazole for two weeks and then go back for follow-up. However, last night, just five days after my very first attack, I was in so much pain again that I had to be rushed to the ER. This time they didn't admit me as my Lipase level was lower than in the first attack (316). They did, however, added another medication: Maalox Susp.
Avatar f tn I have postponed futher blood tests until this condition absolutely requires it I would like to know if there are any other things I can do to help her like diet I am on a very low income but would wish to improve her diet and give her supplements that might ease the onset of her symptoms. I have stopped putting cereal in her food (mixer) I use a good quality tinned food based on tripe and mix in Hills id.
Avatar n tn One doctor said she had duodenal ulcers that were mostly healed. One recent doctor, however, did several tests and concluded that she has chronic pancreatitis and that her pancreas has many cysts. He also said he observed "fatty degeneration" in her liver. She, however, has normal blood sugar (no diabetes) . He also diagnosed "anterior mitral leaflet prolapse", though I don't know whether that's relevant to her digestive problems.
Avatar n tn diet, abdominal pain, gastroparesis, chronic pancreatitis 0.
Avatar f tn Seems I can't find a list of support groups for chronic pancreatitis online. I mean active ones. I keep searching does anybody have any lists? I'm going to ask my question anyways. Seems I have a stone stuck in my curly q pancreatic duct (called an alpha loop?!?). Not sure how it got there. I've been going literally years between acute flare ups. Eating everything and anything. I switched to a low fat/higher carb diet. But, now when I eat ANY amount of fried food it hurts my back!?!?!
Avatar m tn , while keeping him on a low fat diet for his pancreatitis. Dog is a senior, male, bishon frise; please do not recommend a homemade diet I like my dog is old with very poor vision so it is not safe for me to cook. Desperately in need of help. Veterinarians in my area charge high fees to talk to nutrition consultants who will only talk to a vet, and will even charge high fees to talk to free dog food company consultants.
Avatar n tn The symptoms you list sound like pancreatitis to me. When he goes in hospital, I assume the vets check his lipase and amylase levels and that is how they arrive at the pancreatitis diagnosis. Pancreatitis is one of the most difficult problems to treat - in humans as well as dogs. The pancreas is an extremely sensitive organ, and once it becomes inflamed and infected it tends to sulk for quite a long time - sometimes forever. It does not, however, mean a death sentence.
Avatar n tn Hi, Have you been diagnosed with Chronic or Acute pancreatitis? Are you on enzyme pills to aid in digesting food? Do not take any over the counter medicines with alcohol in it at all. Also, stay away from fried foods, high fat foods, spicy foods. And no O'douls beer. It may say it is alcohol free, but if you read the label it contains .5% alcohol. It may not affect you the night you drink it, but in time, it will get to you. I live on a diet of 25 grams of fat or less a day.
Avatar f tn He is a very sensitive, nervous cat. His labs indicate that he does not have pancreatitis, and overall his lab work looks good. He had a full senior work up, as well as urinanalysis and the test for the pancreatitis (negative). He has been dehydrated, not eating well, nauseated and vomiting. Is the next step to do an ultrasound?
Avatar n tn My friend has had the same thing for five years, pancreatitis!! Follow a low fat diet, no fried foods. Bacon, Sausage are off limits. Eat only lean meats a couple times a week and eat small frequent meals. Do not overeat!! It's been 5 years since thier gall bladder surgery too. After the GB is removed your body has trouble digesting fat especially to much at once. Add more fiber to your diet if if you have to take it by mouth. Good Luck!!
Avatar n tn e. family history of pancreatitis), as well as medications.
Avatar n tn Yes, his doc mentioned the low fat diet and he actually sees a nutrioniest in September. I have very high cholestrol too, so I have a list the dietician gave me. I thought with chronic pancreatitis, they out you in the hospital, with IV and no eating for 5 days, to let the pancreas rest? Or did I get that part wrong? He is now taking the enzymes but haven't noticed a difference yet, don't know how long it will take for him to feel any better though.
82861 tn?1333457511 'Tis the season to indulge in gluttonous behavior but it's a good idea not to include our dogs in the feasting. Most people are aware that onions, garlic, grapes and raisins are on the doggy "do not eat" list, but even seemingly safe foods can cause trouble if ingested in quantity. My vet is always very busy in the days following any holiday. He can count on having several cases of pancreatitis coming in along with the usual overindulgence GI symptoms.

Avatar n tn In any case, many GI docs will not diagnose EARLY chronic pancreatitis as by most standards chronic pancreatitis aka cp won't be diagnosed until enough damage is done to the pancreas that it is visible through imaging studies like CT scans, MRIs, etc. This damage can literally take years to occur until it is visible. Usually after many, many repeated attacks to the pancreas.
Avatar f tn The only things that a dog should be fed are lean meats (chicken, beef, pork, and some fish) cooked with very little salt and no other seasonings, and vegetables that are cooked the same way. Too much fat in the diet or spicy food can possibly cause pancreatitis, which is VERY painful for the dog. The best thing to feed her is a well-formulated dog food with very little grain in it.
1264088 tn?1279484422 The gastro says that he can't diagnose me with chronic pancreatitis at this point because there isn't enough damage done to the pancrease, so I have "possible early chronic pancreatitis". How long has it taken most of you to get a chronic pancreatitis diagnosis? Has anyone found anything that can slow down the progression of this disease? I read where someone posted that taking enzymes left them with cravings for sweets and carbs, that has been so true for me.
Avatar n tn -) The only thing that concerned me when I had mine done was the remote possibility of getting pancreatitis. If the doc is very experienced in doing this procedure, you shouldn't have a problem. I suppose you could ask your doc about the incidents of post-ERCP pancreatitis he has personally seen is his own practice?
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.
