Pancreatitis diet plan

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis diet plan


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.
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 Hi, I saw a post of a case similar to mine where the liver was affected as well as the pancreas with wieght gain instead of loss on a low fat diet. Im wondering what causes that especially in pancreatitis? I loss alot of weight a year ago, was real sick with abnormal bruising and weakness, falling down, ect, this was before pancreas started acting up again, prior to that I had only one acute episode of pancreatitis.
Avatar f tn I hope someone out there can help me. For 14 years, I have suffered abdominal attacks in my diaframe very high up in the area between my rib cages. The pain mimics pancreatic pain. The pain is so horrible that I almost wish I could die. It usually lasts 20 to 30 minutes, but can be longer. I am paralized during these attacks & can't move. They usually occur 4 to 6 times a year with milder attacks in between the more serious attacks. Lately, they are becoming more frequent.

Avatar f tn I am a 32 year old female who just had my gallbladder removed due to a nightmarish sudden attack of pancreatitis. My pancreas was inflamed to the point my Dr. wouldnt let me eat or drink anything for 4 days and told me to stay in the hospital bed until I was so bored I didnt know what to do so that the inflammation would go down because it was so bad he was afraid to operate.
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 500 Cal diet with HCG/Simeon Plan. This is my 7th day on the HCG/Simeon diet so I figured it would be a good time to compare them (since I made it 1 week on the non-HCG plan). I have felt very well the entire 7 days, no hunger pangs until the end of the day when I took no shot (yesterday). I am not miserable like I was on the diet w/out HCG. I have lost 5 lbs (net), even with the 2 loading days, and I'm pretty excited about how this is going.
Avatar n tn My 10 year old has had two attacks of acute pancreatitis. These seem to come on very suddenly and be unrelated to any condition such as diet or trauma or drinking alcohol, obviously. There seems to be no treatment except morphine for pain and intravenous fluids. There seems to be no literature on childhood pancreatitis. Can you give me any information about the cause, prognosis and any preventative steps we could take.
Avatar n tn ) - crackers/biscuits I haven't eaten pork and beef ever since the first attack and don't plan to ever. Right now, my diet is composed of just steamed fish & rice for dinner and lunch and cereals/milk/crackers for breakfast. I'm afraid I'm taking the wrong foods :( By the way, as I love coffee and my doctor has told me to stop taking anything with caffeine in it.. is decaf coffee ok? Or it'd be better not take any kind of coffee at all?
Avatar f tn org to find a Registered Dietitian (RD) in your area that will help you with a diabetic diet meal plan or contact a Diabetic Center where you live for help. Thank you for your question.
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 f tn I've made notes as the vet did plan on giving him Aranesp. They are really pushing the Hill's K/D diet and seem to think if phased in slowly, it will be ok. I'm terrified with the PSL level being so high. He also has allergies to grains and soy. Seems like so much going against my baby. He is getting 200 ml of water a day in addition to subq fluids by syringe and also being syringe fed one of your recipes with low fat ground turkey substituted.
Avatar m tn I'm on my way to Mexico for 2 weeks and then plan on seeing a gastroenterologist when I get back. I'm worried about pancreatitis. Is this something that can wait? I'd appreciate any comments or advice. Thanks.
Avatar f tn While still on tx develop neuropthy of my hands ind feet, ssignificant bog fog, chronic pancreatitis. All my different docs give different opion. My neurphathy in my hands has lessened, Now they ache. My brain frog has start to get so much worse. When it first started I would have epxodes of forgetting what I was saying right in the middle of sentence. As it has increased in intensity so has my anxiety which I know won't help.
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.
20820562 tn?1524881446 The pancreatitis is perhaps the main concern. Do you feed a high fat diet? That is known to inflame bouts of pancreatitis, so reducing the fat content of meals is a good plan.
Avatar n tn I have found that the pain especially comes on if I eat something high in fat, usually I stick to a low fat diet. Now I'm seeing a gastroenterologist who just ordered a heap more blood tests, especially another one for pancreas, and told me to come back. I'm also suffering from fatigue which I guess is understandable with the weight loss and lack of appetite. Any ideas, or suggestions as to what I should ask the gastro.
Avatar f tn Had CT scan 2 weeks ago which showed significant inflammation in terminal ileum and old pancreatitis with calcification. Gastroscopy last week showed oesphagitis.Biopsies taken. MRI scan Nov 2007 showed two strictures in small intestine. Gastro has advised following until I see him in clinic 23 July: Double my mtx injections to 25 mg weekly. Add budesonide 9 mg daily Start elemental diet of Fortijuice today. Eat low residue diet if I can manage it. Have another MRI scan asap.
483622 tn?1208483362 I thought he passed the catfish, because Monday morning he accidentally pooped in the house and it looked like the fried fish... Normally he is on Science Diet..Natures Best and then Pro Plan wet for sensitive skin and stomach. He is also on O-mega 3 and vitamin C supplements once a day mixed with his food. He's just laying around and not even wanting a treat! I'm very worried.
Avatar n tn well on the 28th it happened again.was throwing up and severe pain..went back to the er and was told again i have acute pancreatitis put me on nausea pill and pain meds and liquid only diet fot the next 3days...ok that was on tuesday and its now friday and iam still in pain still nausated,stomach is bloated as ever,once in a while i'll have a sharp pain on my lower right side of belly my whole entire stomach is tender to the touch and i think i saw a hint of blackness in my stool...
Avatar n tn ONLY feed chicken breasts. This very lean boiled meat should comprise 50% of her diet. Twenty five percent of her diet should consist of vegetables, again, boiled very well to improve their digestibility. Summer squashes (yellow or green), broccoli, spinach, collard greens or mustard greens can all be fed but must be boiled well so they are easily digested. The last 25% of the diet should be some type of grain, either oatmeal, rice or barley.
Avatar n tn If chronic pancreatitis is in question, it can sometimes even be detected by a simple bloodtest to check the amylase and lipase levels. Often a CT-scan will show chronic pancreatitis, that's how mine was found. An ERCP is good, too, but the patient needs to be aware that it is an invasive procedure and can actually cause a pancreatitis attack.
82861 tn?1333457511 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. Pancreatitis is expensive to treat because it's usually done in-patient and the condition is fatal more often than not. Much as dogs love human food, it's better to be safe than sorry and keep them on their usual diet. Educate your guests that human food is off the menu for your dogs no matter how much they beg.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with gallstones,althought the doctor didnt tell me how big or how many i have he said i needed surgery. I dont plan on having surgery unless it the absolute last option, im so afraid of the complications of it cause im just 25 and i heard that you could develop Colon cancer, Pancreatitis, or have Chronic Diarrhea for the rest of your life after the surgery. I want to know if i dont have the surgery and just eat a low fat diet would i be ok???
Avatar m tn The back pain can last for hours, and although very mild, it is uncomfortable. I'm concerned that this could be chronic pancreatitis. I am a 30 year old male. I don't have a history of drinking. While this started about 2 years ago, my diet has over the past 2 years been fairly low-fat (due to the gallbladder) and better than most people's. (No fried/fast foods, very little processed, mostly vegetarian with spots of fish, eggs and rarely chicken. Also a GERD diet.
Avatar f tn I want to get a second opinion and see if another Vet will conclude that the specific diet plan and medications are the way too go. I really want to give him high quality salmon and chicken as has been mentioned in this blog to help him eat more. Do the numbers say he can have this extra high protein at this stage? I think he is not in the CKD levels that would require a K/D diet or phosphorous binders, etc.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms could be SO many things including sludge/stones in the common bile duct, gallbladder/gallstone problems, Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction, Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth, acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, autoimmune pancreatitis, minimal change chronic pancreatitis, etc. Gravol alone can make you incredibly sleepy. I had extreme nausea which was treated by Domperidone (Motilium). If that's one of the medications your doctor is pushing, it might be worth a shot.
Avatar n tn I lost my first dog at nearly 14 years to pancreatitis. This illness is a really difficult one to treat, and there is no way of telling which dog will respond, and with one won't. Don't force him to eat if he refuses food. He knows he can't digest it. Pancreatitis means that the pancreas is inflamed and swollen and usually infected. In dogs, it is usually brought on by a large, sudden intake of fats.
428506 tn?1296560999 She stopped eating, became severely HYPOthyroid, and developed pancreatitis to boot. She was hospitalized 3 times during this ordeal. She was ultimately released on no thryroid meds, with follow-up. The plan was to get her eating again first and then re-test thyroid levels. Well, we took her home and did syringe feeding. She would also eat small amounts of fancy feast on her own. We managed to help her put back on 0.25 lb this way, but her thyroid levels again went hyper.
