Pancreatitis diet mayo clinic

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis diet mayo clinic


902019 tn?1249865014 The other thing you may want to ask about is a comment I saw on the Mayo Clinic site that said that Imuran can cause or contribute to Pancreatitis. I'd love to know what he/she says on both counts.
Avatar n tn Second, has anyone on here that has been diagnosed with any form of Pancreatitis taken any diet suppliments? I have Idiopathic Severe Chronic Pancreatitis. I want to lose some weight and excersizing alone is not doing it due to the meds I take.
Avatar n tn I have the same symptoms as your daughter. I too had a Dr tell me it was IBS. That was a DR at the Mayo Clinic. I was told they were suppose to be the best. I think the IBS is just a symptom of what ever else is going on. I remember leaving that Drs office with an elevated liver and he said "we'll just keep an eye on it" None of the medications worked for me, and it is so frustrating to be in so much pain and no one will listen. Keep pushing it.
Avatar f tn It took 14 different doctors to not know what was going on before I got fed up and went to the MAYO clinic. They were awesome and there was only one doctor there that could even preform the surgery. I thought at first that everything I ate caused the pain. Since I last posted I think I've gotten a handle on what does and does not cause it. I've figured out that any time my body processes fat I have pain.
Avatar n tn It often gets worse as time goes by. Don't fool around with local doctors! Go to a GI clinic, like Mayo, in Florida, Shands at Univ. of Fl is good, etc. My wife spent 9 months with local GI doctors and was diagnosed with everything from Pelvic floor dysfunction to IBS and more. NONE WERE CORRECT. Search the web for Chronic Pancreatitis and read up on it. It hits more males than female and often in the 40's age range.
Avatar f tn I am actually going to the mayo clinic because I can't get an answer. It sounds like you're having an acute attack of pancreatitis, but possibly chronic. I don't vomit after a large meal, but I get so bloated it hurts to breathe. I had my first encounter 2 years ago I suffered for four months because it wouldn't go away. I looked anorexic by the time all was said and done.
1126279 tn?1311898642 I had my pancreas totally removed (also gallbladder & spleen) at Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN. They have an excellent surgeon who does it laparoscopic!!! The recovery was very rough but not near as bad as having it open & not laparoscopic! I am now a Type 1 Diabetic & take enzymes with my food. Depending on where you are, Johns Hopkins & UCLA also have highly recognized surgeons for this surgery.
Avatar n tn I have had 3 ERCP's, and several other tests at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. As of yet, noone has been able to decide exactly what the problem is and how to treat it. I am very afraid that I will eventually kill off my pancreas. I seem to have attacks every 5-6 weeks. My amylase levels are usually about 2-3,000 with lipase 4,000. Because I hate going to the hospital I take pain meds at home and stay off food. The episodes usually last about 3-4 days.
Avatar n tn This time they put stents in the bile ducts and I was sent to the Mayo Clinic. They did not agree with the conclusion of PSC. I was not happy with the Mayo Clinic as they concluded scar tissue due to the gall bladder removal, however, we thought that is impossible as all my symptoms were there prior to the removal of the gall bladder. So my real doctor, whom I greatly respect, decided to do what is called stent therapy.
Avatar m tn It's a helluva way for her to be spending these wonder years of her life! We will now be going to Mayo Clinic in Rochester... Just wanted to say good luck with all of this. I have just posted a comment about barium contrast etc... Two links there are VERY interesting and I hope you will keep them in mind with your own diagnosis.
Avatar n tn I had hypercalcemia due the the hyperparathyroidism for at least 10 yrs. I read on the mayo clinic page that hyperparathyroidism could cause pancreatitis, but the hyperparathyroidism has been corrected for over a year now. Could it still be causing some lingering problems with my digestive system? I'm just wondering if the gall bladder was the actual problem, or if there was something going on with the pancreas. Thx!
Avatar n tn I am afraid to take him to the ER because I know they will just send us home, but I also don't want his heart to stop which is what the last visit told us could happen. If anyone has other suggestions please let me know. Maybe mayo clinic will be our next step. I lost faith in hospitals and doctors because my sister had sarcoidosis. For an entire year she was in pain and didn't know what was wrong until three months before she passed away.
Avatar n tn I have a friend who also has the same disorder as you. She is going to the Mayo Clinic and is very happy with the care she is receiving.
Avatar f tn If you really DO suspect pancreatitis, there are things you can do to try to ease the symptoms. According the the Mayo Clinic website - Stop drinking alcohol. If you're unable to stop drinking alcohol on your own, ask your doctor for help. Your doctor can refer you to local programs to help you stop drinking. Stop smoking. If you smoke, quit. If you don't smoke, don't start. If you can't quit on your own, ask your doctor for help. Medications and counseling can help you quit smoking.
Avatar f tn These gastros also fixed on gastroparesis. Later at Vanderbilt Autonomic Clinic 2008 saw Gastroparesis Guru who said no way pain was from gastroparesis or pain meds. Pain dr put me on Fent. patch with hydroco for breakthru and baclofen, tried some invasive procedures, really tried to help. Finally went to oral morphine for breakthru pain because was trying to stay out of ER and pain meds weren't helping. Pain kept increasing and ability to eat/drink/move around got worse.
Avatar n tn My son had a gastric transit time done at Mayo Clinic last month, and after 7 hours, less than 26% of the food had made it to the small bowel. They also found that he has a malabsorption syndrome going on, as way too much fat, protein, calories, calcium, vitamins, minerals, etc., are going straight through him and into the stool. We know by testing he has had performed (we spent a total of 4 weeks there) that he suffers from autonomic dysfunction, which causes the gastroparesis, etc.
997730 tn?1254281976 Please don't let anyone fool you this is from treatment.......Matter of fact Mayo Clinic now has a DX of Post Interferon Syndrome...........
Avatar f tn My pancreas doctor would like for me to move forward with an MRCP which is an ERCP with the mammotery (measure the pressure in bile duct) but he has made it clear that I have a very good chance of getting pancreatitis from the procedure. He said I have 5 strikes against me going into it.
Avatar m tn The other day my breathing was bad enough that I contemplated trying to get into the Mayo clinic even though I live in Texas. Sometimes gets worse after eat, but all other symptoms just come and go with no triggers that I can figure out. This is the worst one for me, because not only is it the constant symptom but when I have trouble breathing I have no relief. I just have to try and take my mind off it.
Avatar n tn Then she kind of caught herself and said there is no doctor in Las Vegas,that will do the tests that need to be done, so she is refering him to the mayo clinic in Arizona. I want to say a big thank you to you guys, without being tipped off about this condition and without you guys sharing your stories, I would have never known about this condition and would have never brought it up to his doc. So again, thank you sooo much!!!
Avatar f tn The Mayo Clinic as of this year has a DX;Post Interferon Syndrome yes they do ,you have to be smart and do your own research and not depend on someone else to answer.....Yes,Yes there is a DX for all of us..
Avatar n tn I will hopefully be going to The mayo clinic soon and they can shed some light on this. I just continue to pray to the Lord for a miracle for me and my son. God bless you all, I know how hard it is to suffer with this. If anyone else can shed some light please do..
Avatar n tn please tell me that my aunt does NOT know more than all of these medical websites (especially WebMD and Mayo Clinic) and countless gallstone sufferers on forums such as these. I told her what the ER doc told me, that I would need to have my gall bladder removed, but she says her friend, who is merely a dietician, says that as long as I avoid fatty foods and all this other junk, I will be fine.
Avatar n tn Also, I read somewhere once that sometimes when the blood needs to reduce it's volume, that excessive urination will follow. I like the Mayo Clinic website, and sometimes WebMD, but failing that, I just google things and see what turns up more than a few times.
Avatar n tn Lumbar puncture,spinal fluid sent to Mayo clinic for evaluation of possible viruses. Neg. for post herpetic neuropathy sin zoster herpete.(PHN SZH) neg. for CIdp chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy)neg. for MS (multiple sclerosis) ng.for HIV AIDS Nothing has been found abnormal with any of my organs including my liver, kidneys. No signs of cancer, tumors. Nothing abnormal in my spinal structure i.e. bulging disc or degenerating disc , spinal stenosis.
Avatar m tn Hi -many thanks for coming back to let us know your scope results; they look pretty good. How was the prep? I find that the most difficult part of scopes. . As you may know, Crohn's usually, but not always, starts in the terminal ileum and the presence of aphthous ulcers in that area is indeed indicative of Crohn's. I am sure the gastro took some biopsies and review by a pathologist should be able to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar f tn The other option I would respectfully suggest is a consultation with Mayo Clinic in either Minnesota or Jacksonville. If I had an intractable problem, as your father does, this would certainly be worth considering You could call them, and see if they have a specialist(s) in this field, which I would think they do, as they are a renowned world class medical facility. MD Anderson in Houston is also a top hospital, as is the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.
Avatar n tn This pain comes in like an attack where I am in the fetal position, seizurely clenched, and can't get up off of the bathroom floor. I have been thorugh a work-up at Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN, and been seen by a GI at University Hospital in Iowa City. I have had several colonoscopies, laperotomies, ultrasounds, catscans, blood and urine tests, been tested for Crohn's, my gallbladder has been removed, my appendix has also been removed. My liver function tests are always normal.
