Pancreatitis kidney

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis kidney


Avatar m tn I am worried it's pancreatitis, but I have had a complete abdominal ultrasound on all internal organs (negative) and labs for LFT's Kidney function, Cholesterol, all were normal, although no pancreas panels were ordered. I brought it up to my dr she said pancreatitis is excrutiating, and mine isn't. I have read conflicting info some say excruciating some say not so. I am confused and scared, my wife is pregnant with our first child, and I don't want to die.
Avatar n tn Has anyone ever had pancreatitis? I am wondering if I this is what is causing my left side pain under my rib cage. This appears at any time of day or night and lasts several hours. The pain feels like I have been running and got a side ache almost under my breast. My doctor has not suggested this, he is trying to ignore my symptoms for some reason. He found a small liver cyst, 2 weeks ago and then sent me for blood work.
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.
719251 tn?1230344505 My mother has been suffering from Pancreatitis for the past 4months. She has been in hospital three times with severe pain, vomitting, and fluid in the abdominal. In that time she has lots over 25kg. She is 60 years old but since loosing so much weight she looks like 80 years old. She no longer drinks but continues to smoke. What worries me the most is that she eats very tiny amount of food, she vomitts everyday and she is just not getting any better.
Avatar n tn I had to put my 11 year old Llhasa apso to sleep yesterday because he was diagnosed with pancreatitis and was in so much pain that they could not guarantee that he would survive even with treatment. It came on suddenly...he was fine Saturday but began throwing up in the middle of the night and continued...he couldn't even hold down water and was very weak. I took him into the veterinary hospital on Sunday and he was too weak to come home.
Avatar f tn My chocolate lab "Skip" is about 10 years old and developed pancreatitis for the first time. We took him to the doctor he never vomited or diahrea until the day after he got to the vets office. His amalyse was high like 8000 and his glucose and white blood count low but we got an ultrasound to make sure not cancer. He started to show improvements with the IV and antibiotic. Now a week later he is starting to decline and the vet has tried everything.
Avatar n tn Wellness Simple (salmon, not lamb) and Wellness Stews are what I feed my dog with pancreatitis. He has chronic smoldering pancreatitis and is 15 1/2 years old. He is a terrier mix but it's obvious there is schnauzer mixed in his bloodline. His lipase level was >6000 today but renal function is normal except BUN a tiny bit above normal. Creatinine was 1.7 (high end of normal). He is having normal stools and has a great appetite and is not vomiting.
Avatar n tn and she believes it is very different from pancreatitis or colitis pain. Could this be a kidney problem that is being overlooked? Much, much, appreciation for any feedback.
1036535 tn?1278506199 CT was actually OK, but I had numerous small stones in my kidney. Not unusual for me. But my lipase was high. Left w/ dx of pancreatitis. No gallstone blocking the duct, no alcohol use. Yet another doc I have puzzled. My question is: Do any of you know if Neurontin &/or occasional Darvocet use can cause pancreatitis?
Avatar m tn I woke in the am without the initial symptoms, but instead had a full body rash that was developing and extreme soreness on both sides of my lower back. (I had assumed kidney stones or issue, but the later blood work and urinalysis suggested not.) Went to the doc 2 days later as the rash covered nearly my whole body. The rash was so pronounced and severe looking (though minimal discomfort) that all of the physician attention was spent on it.
Avatar f tn My most recent visit I have fatty stool, fatty liver, kidney stone and xray showed costipation, not much else was said. Dr prescribed Nexium and some medication for IBS. He said my blood sugar was off but that was ok because it was the end of the day (3:30pm). My blood work came back good he said. Oh, I also have 4 ovarian cysts that I had to go to the hospital and pay for the results, nothing has been done about those. I am at my whits end, something is wrong and not one Dr.
Avatar n tn I have had terrible pain in my front right & left ribs & in my sides that wraps about midways in my back somethime under both shoulderblades on both sides for the last 2 years after eating with weight loss that has leveled off some. I have had one mild elevation of Amylase around 135 at the beggining of 2006. I had high triglycerides which are now normal.I have had continual elevations of Lipase around 320 throughout the last 2 years.
Avatar f tn I truly feel like the change in diet triggered her pancreatitis which caused her kidney values to shoot through the roof (when we put her in the hospital, they were literally off the chart). We get to pick her up today. I definitely don't want to feed her anymore of the NF food. I checked out some of your recipes which I am more than willing to try, but I want to make sure it doesn't affect her pancreatitis. Any thoughts?
Avatar m tn was almost gone. Then 1 1/2 years later he developed kidney failure (I should mention that he has been a diabetic for 15ish years). None of his doctors could explain why his kidney where failing. Now the past month or so he has developed a swollen gland on the side of his neck. It was the size of a grapefruit now it is the size of a golf ball. The itching and vomiting returned a few weeks later. He has just a small amount of jaundice.
Avatar n tn I am overweight, have hypothyroidism, and PCOS. I originally posted this in the kidney forum, as my family doctor felt I may have a kidney stone. However, I visited a urologist today who does not feel that I have a kidney stone and prescribed antibiotics for a possible urinary tract infection. However, I am still experiencing intermittent left side pain and have had three bowel movements today that were narrow and gray (almost colorless).

Avatar m tn There is a website with information on digestive and kidney diseases(and pancreatitis) that the National Institutes of Health sponsor. Perhaps you can find some helpful information. I take one Prilosec, 20 mg(prescribed); Prilosec ,10 mg is sold OTC at any pharmacy. Here is the website: I do not know why, but the website takes you to Google that list the same URL. Click on the Heading, Digestive, and search.
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?

LATEST DIAGNOSIS - Fibromyalgia -still intense, excruciating RUQ/flank pain - has sent me to ER 3 times in 2 mos! - last time was seizing with eyes rolling back in head, & bad slurring (TIA ?). Cat scans show only 2 cysts on liver/1 on R-kidney.
Avatar m tn Saturday evening, soon after a big meal, I developed an aching in my right back, below shoulder blade, like where my kidney is. It persisted for several hours so I decided to retire early. Without warning, I began to feel chills and I could not get warm. I went straight to bed and under the covers but I began shaking violently almost. I could not get warm. I knew that I would soon begin a fever. I don't think I noticed that pain any more but I had a bad headache and dry, stuffy nose.
Avatar m tn I am a 32 yo male who took an ultrasound test after having GERD like symptoms and the Md said that i have a kidney mass 2.3cm on my left kidney. I had problems with urination frequency but no blood and inflammation on pelvis and side/front of abdomen. I am scheduled for CAT in a week and I am just really concerned and stressed because I am worried about the chances of being a kidney cancer. What is the likelihood this can lead to cancer?

658828 tn?1225050195 ) I also thought I had pancreatitis...SOD...kidney issues (did I IVP xray..) ...remember if it's celiac or wheat..or some take a good month or so to see improvement so find a safe gluten free vitamin to try or test for celiac in the meantime...
Avatar n tn If the pain is in the left lumbar region (see the quadrants of abdomen—a google image should get you this), then this could be due to stomach issues (like acidity), it may be due to pancreatitis, or spleen issues or kidney stones or kidney infection or due to urinary infection or colitis. An ultrasound of the abdomen followed by urine and stool examination may help clinch the diagnosis. You may need additional tests like CT scan of abdomen, serum amylase, lipase etc.
Avatar f tn Hi Tony, My Dog Zoey shih tzu 10 yrs old was diagnosed with kindey failure (Chronic on Acute) on Thursday 04/27/2017. I never knew she had a kidney disease and now feel horrible that i never recognized it or took her in to get checked. She has always been a picky eater so her picking and choosing when to eat didn't concern me much until she began to lose weight rapidly. Within a matter of a week her weight went down dramatically.
Avatar f tn My 8 year old dog has late stage chronic kidney failure. She was diagnosed just over three weeks ago. We were shocked to hear this news because she just started showing signs of nausea about a week earlier (no other signs before). BUN 83, Creatinine 6.0, and Phosphorus 8.5 (her levels lowered after 48 hours of IV). She is anemic and has pancreatitis and a UTI as well. She has been struggling with loss of appetite (weight loss) and vomiting.
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.
583644 tn?1221449146 My body tells me it is my kidneys. I have kidney stones, but my GP insists that the pain is not from my kidney stones because they are not obstructing the duct. I asked him if it was possible that my stones were moving around and he told me that kidney stones do not move around and they do not cause pain.
