Pancreatitis diet reasons

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis diet reasons


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 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!
559187 tn?1330786456 I had to stay home sick today as I did not get any sleep last night because of stomach pain and nausea. I am also having fatigue that is so overwhelming and comes on so quickly that I feel compelled to stop whatever I am doing and go lay down. That is very strange as that never happens to me. So I called my PCP to tell her what was going on.
Avatar f tn After two days i was told last night her kidney is at 7, i cant remember what her BUN was or any other number because at that point i was told she now has pancreatitis and her liver is going bad as well. They are releasing her today with me and told me to take her home, make her comfortable at home and she can either pass on her own or i can bring her in after a few days to be put down. I am having a hard time with this whole thing and felt it came on quickly.
Avatar f tn fevers with frequent visits to the docs (glandular fever diagnosed) he got worse and in hospital his lipase levels were initially 1200 and rose to 3000 he was on tube feeding (didn't stop the pain) and later tpn which helped. His lipase are around 170 last check he has been sent home with low fat diet (he lost 12.5 kilo's in hospital) . He is still having severe stomach pains.
Avatar n tn I side-stepped the issue at the time and the attacks quitened. I have taken a relatively low fat diet since then and have "controlled" the little terror. However, my brother is a gp and my brother in law is a consultant radiologist. They both hound me to have the gall bladder removed. I avoid it simply because of the probability of having constant runny stoohl which I cannot control because of the inability (experienced all my life) to feel.
Avatar f tn What on earth can a person eat if they have/had the following: hyperlipidemia (trigl = 27,000), diverticulitis (part of intenstine & stomach removed), pancreatitis (do not produce insulin), diabetes (take several hundred units of insulin daily), cholecystectomy (gallbladder was infected and full of stones), hysterectomy (endometriosis)?
543435 tn?1282246279 Has any doctor ever suggested he may have chronic pancreatitis? You can have chronic pancreatitis and have flares of acute pancreatitis. This can be hereditary or from drinking or many other reasons. If you have this disease then you are unable to digest a lot of food. Sticking to a low fat diet and taking specially prescribed enzymes to help digest food seems to help some people with this. Usually a diagnosis is made from an endoscopic ultrasound procedure or from CT scan.
Avatar f tn your test is high, but not high enough to say you have pancreatitis, i know this as i have had it in the past, and when i drink alcahol now my blood tests flare up and down to roughly the 180 mark where before it was nearly 400 when i had pancreatitis, you may need to change your diet, stop any alcahol and spicy, faty food. do that for a month and see the results, im betting they will come down..
Avatar n tn My family has no history of chronic pancreatitis. I was treated successfully, was on a strict diet for a couple of years, and then I was symptoms -free for years. Occasionally, I would have periods of mild epigastric pain, they would do ultrasound for my pancreas and see no abnormalities. About two years ago I suddenly developed pain in my back (where the left kidney is). THe pain was dull and very persistent. I went to see a doctor. He ordered the ultrasound of the left kidney. It was normal.
Avatar m tn After recovery from 3rd episode she was taking proper care of her diet too she was avoiding tea,coffee,fast food and even fried things Help me to sort out the problem.
Avatar n tn However, if there is any possibility of your having sludge (which may not be seen with any type of ultrasound study depending upon one's anatomy), which can irritate the common bile duct and sphincter of Oddi (muscular opening to the duodenum - and that, too, wouldn't be seen in ultrasound studies) if your having any kind of spasms of the CBD or sphincter, it might kick the pancreatitis back into existence.
Avatar n tn Going forward, you'll need to know that once pancreatitis strikes, it can easily turn into a chronic condition. That's why a very low-fat diet is so very important. You don't want to feed anything that would cause another acute (and potentially fatal) attack. Some dogs like mini schnauzers are genetically prone to developing pancreatitis. With strict attention to diet and nutrition, they can live a normal lifespan without too much trouble.
Avatar f tn This is hard to say. Acute or chronic pancreatitis would cause lack of pancreatic enzymes, what would mainly affect fats, which would be not absorbed and hence excreted with stool. Such a stool would be whitish, floating, and would stick to the toilet. Diabetes is also a disease of pancreas, but I can not say if it affected the secretion of digestive enzymes also. If enzymes are normal, then stool in diabetic diarrhea would be of normal brown color or even greenish from unabsorbed bile.
Avatar n tn I cannot tell if eating or diet is the direct cause of this. I am very nervous that I may have a chronic form of pancreatitis, since I have read that some of the symptoms of it resemble mine. Yet, I have only been drunk a few times in my life and never had any problems before April of this year. I have not touched alcohol or Paxil since my visit to hospital nearly six months ago.
Avatar f tn I have been tested for bleeding, but none has been found. Iron anemia can be strictly from diet - you need red meat, not just soy etc. - or for reasons they don't understand. I've had to have transfusions a couple times, and I hover around 10 - 11 most of the time for Hemoglobin. I have problems with regurgitating gastric contents when sleeping (no esophageal motility, hiatal hernia, scleroderma esophagus & barrett's) and one time it was totally black.
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 m tn Can a bulky pancreas occur without pancreatitis or are the two always seen together? Does pancreatitis always cause a bulky pancreas? Is the CT a definitive tool to rule out pancreatitis and or ca of pancreas? Should I be suspicious of an alternative and possible problematic condition that is not immediately obvious? How common is a bulky pancreas in people my age? Do bulky pancreas' resolve over time in most people or are they always an indicator of cancer or pancreatitis.
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 m tn While I plan to ask my gastroenterologist for an MRCP to rule out chronic pancreatitis, I'd like to know if there are other possible reasons for this type of pain. Could it be due solely to the gastroparesis? (I tend to be more sensitive in my back than front, even to the point of feeling heartburn on my back way before my chest.) Could it be due to nerve compression issues? Could it be something else I've yet to consider?
Avatar f tn Eat a very lowfat diet with no smoking or alcohol . These things aggrevate your pancreas. Pancreatitis in a young adult is not very common so they are looking into what is causing it. A lot of times pancreatitis is caused by drinking excessively for a long time. Since you probably do not fit that criteria they have to see what is causing it. The second thing that can cause pancreatitis is gallstones.
129422 tn?1222703189 We as humans get gas for a multitude of reasons, so finding out why it happens is not that easy to do. A good diet, minimize the organic treat and your pup should be fine. Try it, I think you'll be amazed. I was also told that the gas can be a build up from her trying to deal with her joint issues, which is common in any small dog. But it gets them excited, causes panting, hence air into the belly and gas.
Avatar m tn But as for a problem just with the pancreas, there are about a dozen reasons for pancreatitis, and so the cause must be found and treated, in addition to treatment for the inflammation going on in the pancreas. Assuming you have pancreatitis, the very first thing a doc would do is put you in the hospital and give you I.V. fluids and then you cannot eat and drink for two days. Since you cannot drink for two days, that's how come you need I.V. fluids.
Avatar m tn For example, if the traveling time through the intestine is too rapid, then bile won't have the time to go through additional color changes and the stool color may be close to green. The color of stool can change for other reasons as well. Many changes in stool color may not be of much importance, especially if the change happens once and is not consistent from one stool to the next. Sudden major changes in stool color that persist may suggest an underlying medical problem.
Avatar n tn Dear Jeannie, Your posting allows me the opportunity to provide some general comments on pancreatitis. Pancreatitis means inflammation of the pancreas. Acute pancreatitis refers to a condition in which there is sudden onset of abdominal pain. In North America the most common identified causes are common bile duct stones, alcohol use, and abdominal trauma. There are other causes but they are not common. Included among the unusual causes are drugs and idiopathic.
Avatar m tn But there has been nothing found besides a few minor things. I have lost about 30 lbs since this has been going on, changed my diet, quit drinking Mt.Dew no more fast food ect ect ect...... There are a few other heart tests you can have. I had a CT angiogram which is non-invasive form of a agiogram. It tells you how much plaque you have in your coronary arteries. I had that done also.
Avatar f tn the gallbladder is literally a bladder (holding tank) for bile which is produced in the liver, and which breaks down fats in the stomach after a meal.
Avatar f tn It *could* be an ulcer in the small intestine right after the stomach area.. Anyway with those symptoms my advice is to take fats out of your diet asap, and avoid oily foods (two things the gallbladder works real hard on) to give your gallbladder a break..I wouldn't lift or do any heavy exercising for a few days and then maybe drink some apple juice (some people say it's a good home remedy to flush out the liver/gallbladder) if all fails..
Avatar n tn However, stents can sometimes fail for various reasons, and they can sometimes make pancreatitis worse. Even just having a procedure that has anything to do with the bile and pancreatic ducts can cause pancreatitis. I know this sounds ironic because narcotics are supposed to relieve pain, but they have been shown to make SOD symptoms worse, so maybe you should ask your about trying an antispasmotic instead.
