Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis diet the pancreatitis diet review


Avatar n tn The common bile duct normally passes though the head of the pancreas. In long-standing chronic pancreatitis, the scarring in the head of the pancreas narrows the common bile duct. Some degree of narrowing may occur in up to half the patients with chronic pancreatitis but when the narrowing is severe, it prevents the bile draining from the liver into the duodenum. It then spills back into the blood and the patient's eyes and skin become yellow.
Avatar f tn So on my 6th day in the hospital he finally took out my gallbladder which actually hurt less than the pancreatitis and was full of stones one of which he thought must have been rubbing against my pancreas. Anyway, I have been having issues ever since. Almost every time I eat its like I can feel it aggravating my pancreas and I get that familiar pain again.
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 I was on either on a clear liquid diet or NPO (nothing) for six of the seven days I was there. Only the last day was I given a "liquid diet" for two meals and then solids for the last meal. My amylase and lipase levels were not elevated, my hepatic function tests were normal as was my urine sample. I went through abdominal x-rays, gastric emptying test, small bowel follow thru, and a MRI that zeros in on the bile duct (the specific name escapes me at the moment).
10805050 tn?1420939120 That's why so many secondary conditions hit me so fast (2 massive esophageal bleeds, 1 Lower GI Bleed, uncontrolled Portal Hypertension requiring a TIPS procedure, Acites, Hepatic Encephalopathy, Alcoholic Disorder with Pancytopenia and Bone Marrow Suppression, 2 Acute Respiratory Failures, Pneumonia, Alcoholic Pancreatitis... the list goes on.) While all this was going on my liver somehow was able to keep the Hepatitis C virus at bay with extremely low Viral counts(15,283).
Avatar f tn The Pancreatitis could have been caused separately, or it could be a side eddect of the Clavamox. But as she tolerated Clavamox well before, with no problems (how long ago?) -it may be that some dietary issue might be behind the pancreatitis. Can you recall what she was fed just before she became sick? Did she get ham, Turkey skin, anything at all fatty -even some cheese?
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 I read somewhere about trying bananas, rice and applesauce and it really did the trick. It took 3 sessions to finish the banana and the diet is boring and I added cheese crackers when I felt it was ok and now I am well in my second week and am eating real food, just leaving some things out. Butter in or on anything really bothers me, seasoning hurts me, NO FAT at all, and dairy sends me straight to the bathroom.
Avatar m tn Also pancreatitis. - he recovers from the perforation and pancreatitis and is discharged. Six weeks later they seem him, quite possibly to follow up on the HCV, and lo and behold it's gone. Note that LFTs, while still out of range are an oder of magnitude better. But they find another problem, with his thyroid, and start him on propylthiouracil for which documented side-effects are a reduction in white-blood cells.
Avatar m tn Your symptoms could be SO many things including sludge/stones in the CBD, gallbladder/Post-Cholecystectomy Syndrome, Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction, Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth, pancreatitis, etc. The metallic taste is common with pancreatitis, duct, gallbladder and other biliary problems. So are the chronic back pain radiating to your middle back and right shoulder blade, irregular bowel movements, fatigue, frothy urine and abdominal pain. [I have all of that.
Avatar n tn I have been researching it a lot lately b/c of my own illnesses, bad gallbladder and enlarged pancreas, on my way to pancreatitis, but before it was diagnosed the dr. said pancreatitis and I began my research. I immediately went on the diet, although since it is my gallbladder it didn't do that much good. High carbs, low protein and very low fat. I know how difficult it is for a 15 year old, but it may really help him.
1485641 tn?1287977898 I cant say whether or not pesticides are the problem but continued episodes of your dogs vomiting and diarrhea can lead to Pancreatitis which can lead to Diabetes and daily insulin injections. Now is the time to take preventative pet health steps to try to avoid this. My recommendation would be to have your vet run a set of complete blood and urine tests. Then unless the lab tests pinpoint a specific canine health problem, consider a bland home made diet, digestive enzymes and probiotics.
Avatar m tn I am still experiencing a significant amount of pain in the upper abdomen. Could this be due to the incision and/or the bile duct? I've had colon resections twice before and bounced back much quicker. I don't want to bother my surgeon if this is the normal healing process. Thanks for any help you can give me.
Avatar f tn Your symptoms could be SO many things including Post-Cholecystectomy Syndrome, Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction, Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth, pancreatitis, etc. I apologize for the length of this post but I really want to help you. Doing your own research can only help. Check out the "First Principles of Gastroenterology", I would take special note of the biliary system, Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction and pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn i have been haveing terrible pain in my abdominal area for about 6 months n ow and my doctor thought it was just acid reflux,the pain is right below my ribs in the center,and when i lay down on my left side the pain gets so severe that it radiats up to the right side of my jaw and sometimes into my right ear,also recently i have had bowl movements tha was florecent green,thats right bright florescent green,could this be a sign of a bad galbldder,?
Avatar f tn Your symptoms could be SO many things including gallstones, Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction, Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth, pancreatitis, etc. I apologize for the length of this post but I really want to help you. I would ask my primary care physician to refer me to a Gastroenterologist. With fatigue and pain so severe, you probably want to get in as soon as possible. Doing your own research can only help.

Avatar f tn I'm a 42 year old woman who has 7 major surgeries due to ovarian cysts and ectopic pregnancies. Over the past 2 years I have been hospitalized 8 times ....twice for bowel obstructions, once for a gallbladder attack that required having my gallbladder removed, twice for colon infections & the other admissions never turned up any sort of infections or obstructions but they blamed the vomiting, diarrhea & horrible abdominal pain to adhesion's from past surgeries.
Avatar f tn I've been taking my meds as directed and my diet has remained the same. I've been injecting Byetta for nearly two years (twice a day). My husband saw that there is a class action suit against the manufacturer because of side effects, damage to the pancreas. I did some reserch on line and found there are all kinds of side effects, damage to the kidneys, liver and G.I. issues. For the last year I have had IBS and now my blood sugar is climbing, (only my fasting).
Avatar f tn There are some less invasive tests such as the Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) and MRCP-S (Secretin) which can image the pancreas and ductal system. The EUS does require sedation and is similar to an upper endoscopy. If you have a Gastroenterologist, they might be willing to try an EUS or MRCP-S to determine what is causing your symptoms.
Avatar n tn com/GITextbook/en/Default.htm. I would take special note of the biliary system, Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction and pancreatitis. Are you taking Metamucil or a similar daily fibre product? This is a great help for MANY people with right upper quadrant pain. It does not make you go, it makes you regular by adding fibre to the watery stools, making them firm. Many people with right upper quadrant pain have great success with digestive enzymes and pancreatic enzymes.
Avatar m tn Finally, I ate a very light breakfast, skipped lunch, ran about five miles on a hot day then spent the afternoon at a wine festival, drinking heavily on a stomach that was VERY empty. This led to a LOT of pain, as though I'd been stabbed in the stomach. The pain was like the pain of a bad ulcer. This was accompanied by acid. My symptoms started immediately. I didn't get hungry for meals, even just a few hours after the incident.
Avatar n tn Also could be gallbladder (gallbladder sits beneath the liver)or pancreatitis,that occurs after HEAVY bout of drinking,usually followed by nausea,vomiting,fever,clammy skin.If you develop those symptoms go to your dr,and laying off the drinks will help,good luck!
Avatar f tn I didn't go to the ER for fear they would send me home and just kept thinking that if I could make it through the night, I would be ok. This wasn't the case the second time around. The pain subsided after that awful night, but the diarrhea continued for weeks. It wasn't until three weeks into it, after walking around in a fog the entire time, that I thought I saw blood in the stool and went to my doctor. He ordered a stool sample, which came back fine. I haven't been normal since.
Avatar n tn hi i am a 30 year female that had my gall bladder removed 8 months ago, i recoved fine after surgery however had a colonoscopy after 3 weeks that seem to throw my system off, since then i have been doing ok until last week i took a fish oil pill and then started having pain on my right side. I t seems the pain is in my back and radiates to my front near the rib cage and also along the right side of the abdomen. I work at a Physical thereapist and have rulled out my back or spine.
756668 tn?1287228987 I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to answer me and give me such wonderful information. I am sticking to my diet and it is okay. he sent me home with no medication, but I am sure I will be okay. See...that is one of my biggest concerns. Everywhere I read...I notice that more people who have had there gallbladder/gallstones removed still have problems. I do not know if I want to go through that. I know I will have to one day....but this is scary.
Avatar n tn I have just started B12 shots and my Doctor has also put me on an iron supplement. Over the past I have tried elimination diets to see if different foods were the cause but with no success. I also suffer from chronic constipation (for the last 15 years). My gall bladder was removed 18 years ago. I see a Dietitian on a regular basis so my diet is healthy and well balanced. I am not overweight and have no other known health issues. If any one has ideas, please help.
Avatar n tn Hello Sam, you seemed to have a grasp of the problem, i watch my diet well & don't eat hardly any fatty foods or drink any alcohol at all. i will try the digestive & pancreatic enzymes you mentioned as it may assist. i did try Metamucil as suggested by my gastro specialist but it actually made my constipation for some but not others but at least we keep trying things. thanks for your information.
Avatar f tn I wish someone had done the same for me in the beginning. I'm not a doctor and I know nothing about medicine beyond what I've experienced. They might run a test called a HIDA Scan (Hepatobiliary Imino-Diacetic Acid scan) to evaluate how well your gallbladder is functioning. If the ejection fraction rate is 35% or less, your gallbladder could be the culprit and may need to be removed. Doing your own research can only help.
Avatar n tn He said I was at the highest risk factor for having pancreatitis from the ERCP so if he can avoid doing the test he wants to. This doctor is supposed to be the leading specialist in small duct pancreatitis in this area so I'm trusting in him. He told me that there is still a possibility that I have idiopathic chronic pancreatitis and did some blood work today to find out what my trypsin (sp) levels were.
