Pancreatitis natural treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis natural treatment

pancreatitis

Avatar n tn Six months ago our 13 year old mini schnauzer suffered dreadfully with a severe case of panreatitis and his discomfort and internal bleeding left no option but to put him down (such a terrible term!). He had suffered from pancreatitis for a number of years and received treatment on each occasion but it seemed that with every new attack, his recovery response to treatment diminished.
422425 tn?1307996590 I have been on a huge round of steriods since the summer, I am afraid of the side effects, and want to go off of them. My doctors won't let me, so I am just looking for some advice and maybe a natural treatment for it. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Your husband is receiving the standard medical treatment for a severe acute pancreatitis attack. Often severe cases can take several weeks to subside. The doctors are controlling his nausea and replacing his fluids and allowing the pancreas total rest by restricting solid food. The antibiotics were given as a safeguard in case any infection resulted from his attack. This, too, is standard procedure after an acute attack.
793908 tn?1294708709 My 10 yr old mini Poodle Julie was now diagnosed with a heart murmur when she went to ER Vet again.. for another Pancreatitis attack..which is better now. My Vet told me that the Trilostane (22.5 mg) is NOT working for her Cushings disease. Yet, 2 months ago her numbers came way down to normal. He now wants her on LYSODREN. I am scared to death of that drug. I read too much negative reports about it. Thats why I put her on Trilostane.
Avatar m tn If you are e-positive then the end of treatment is becoming e-negative. If you are e-negative then the end of treatment is less clear and needs further discussion.
Avatar m tn Now my 5 year old schnauzer had her first attack of pancreatitis. Standard treatment is to withhold food for 72 hours. Drink small amounts of water. Then on day 3 give 1 tablespoon of either special canned diet ID formula or the boiled chicken and rice. Continue 1 tablespoon a day for 3 days. Then re check with vet. Keep on special pancreas diet for life. No fat foods..no snacks like popcorn etc. Only dog food that is low in fat.
Avatar m tn If a dog needs to be on Prednisone for 6 months, is there anything one can do to help prevent the bad side effects like erosion in the stomach and GI, Pancreatitis, muscle loss, etc ?
793908 tn?1294708709 Hi all..I have not been in here in awhile. Life has been hard for Julie (my 10 yr old mini poodle). As some of you know, she is on Trilostane. It WAS working great till she had many Pancreatitis attacks..every month for 6 mos..& she had to go off & on Trilostane alot & that threw her body way off. Reluctantly, my Vet upped her to 34 mg. & said she can not go any higher for her weight..13.5 lbs.. I read differently...that she can go to a higher dose.
Avatar f tn Dear Friends, I've been off of treatment now for 2 weeks. I'm off the Procrit and Neupogen as well. I've cut back the Ultram to just 1/2 a pill (25mg) daily. Before, on treatment I was on 50mg twice a day. Anyhow, I've been feeling totally bad since stopping treatment. I can't sleep hardly at all, which makes it worse because I've never been able to take a nap during the day either.

233616 tn?1312790796 A guy has a heart attack at 45 because he took treatment. doesn't mean the treatment caused it. could have been his genetics and a million gut bombs..or that he was a prison subject, still it will go down in the list of possible side effevts. there's no way to prove a drug causes evert reaction. Not when they are only around for a few years anyway.Part of the bad rap for GH comes from all the misuse, athletic and hollywood, but docs won't prescribe megadoses for people to become the hulk.
Avatar n tn Treatment for patients who have pancreatitis due to high triglyceride levels includes weight loss, exercise, eating a low fat diet, controlling blood sugar, and avoiding alcohol and medications that can raise triglycerides (eg: thiazide diuretics and beta-blockers). Studies have suggested that oxidative stress may contribute to the development of pancreatitis and that antioxidant supplementation may be of some benefit. Natural antioxidants include selenium, beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E.
Avatar m tn Quasimodo, if you read the actual studies you'll see that the natural treatment isn't suggested to kill H. pylori all the time, or in everyone. So, please, if you're using a natural treatment make sure the H. pylori is eradicated. It's important to do so even if you use antibiotics to treat the bacterium. There are certain strains of H. pylori that can go on to cause other problems such as heart problems. You don't want to control the H. pylori. You want to kill it.
3241370 tn?1346757469 Narcotics cause constipation by slowing peristalsis of the small and large bowel. Derangements of the natural chemicals of the body and metabolic derangements after surgery can lead to an ileus. Sodium, potassium and magnesium level alterations can affect peristalsis and normal intestinal movements. Correction of metabolic derangements, High fiber diet, laxatives, stool softeners, suppositories, enemas are the available treatment options. The treating doctor can decide what is best for him.

406419 tn?1244914764 My doctor wants me to have the ERCP but I am concerned about the procedure (5% get pancreatitis) plus it is more invasive. He has only done 140 or so of these and has had five percent of his patients get pancreatitis. I am asking for any suggestions of what to do now as I asked the doctor to postpone.until I get two second opinions (by radiologist and gastronenterologist).. He still believes I should have the procedure but knows I am seeking other opinions.
Avatar n tn COM I have not started treatment yet but will begin in January on conventional treatment. The herb that you mention IS NOT a cure.....please understand this. It only from my understanding this herb provides the ultimate in liver support in what the liver is suppose to do. Once again it is not a cure for HEP C. Hope this helps.......
Avatar n tn lipase was 75 out of a high 59 range Amylase was also marginal. He said he thought it was pancreatitis. I had a CT scan that was normal. Later levels came back down to normal ranges. I quit drinking and about 4 months later I had problems again. The pains became quick, sharp pains in upper left abdomen actually in the lower rib cage area. Bothersome but nothing major. Levels were checked and again they were a little high.
Avatar n tn Pain after eating, at the sternum and radiating through to the back was one of my earliest symptoms when I developed chronic pancreatitis. I'm not saying that's what you have, but this pain is not normal and you should seek the advice of a medical professional as soon as you can. Best would be a gastro specialist, as this does seem to be a digestive problem, and that's what they specialize in.
Avatar f tn Taken off K/D diet in spring of 09 due to urine crystals and 2 urinary tract infections, eating all natural science diet (nature's best) now. Focal seizures ceased in early december 08 after diet change, never returned. Most recent bile acids test in 10/09 still abnormal, checked for pancreatitis as an explanation, but test was negative. Dog is healthy in appearance, soft shiny coat, tall and lean build, active, strong, and very intelligent. My vet is stumped.
Avatar n tn So far, I have been dealing with multiple urinary tract infections, skin infection, ear infections, vaginitis and the most recently and most deadly pancreatitis. She was just released from the hospital today after three days of treatment of IV antibiotitcs and a multitude of other medications to try to resolve the pancreatitis. Fortunatetly she is responding to treatment and we are hoping we are going to be able to bring this under control with medication.
Avatar m tn A phase III trial was moving forward, and I was surprised to learn that a patient receiving alisporivir had died of pancreatitis. The US Food and Drug Administration noted a possible association of pancreatitis with alisporivir and instituted a “clinical hold.” A full evaluation of the alisporivir data set is now under way, and we wait to see whether any possible risks can be managed and whether it is safe to resume testing.
Avatar n tn You should also have them check your amylase and lipase levels for pancreatitis, as your complaints are all common symptoms of chronic pancreatitis, too. Quite often people develop pancreatitis after gallbladder removal. I would recommend a consultation with a digestive specialist and full CBC as soon as possible. Good luck.
1551828 tn?1294236346 I went to work, but as soon as I started working I got a realy bad pain on the left side, near my pancreas, so i got sent home from work and i went to the er. There they did blood work and urine tests, and told me that I had pancreatitis ( based that my amaylase was a tiny bit raised). ( I had acute pancreatitis when i was 15) This time they sent me home and told me only clear liquids only and to follow up with my doctor.
Avatar n tn Do these symptoms sound like pancreatic cancer or maybe pancreatitis? Anyone else have problem with pancreas that could possibly shed any light on these symptoms? Does a problem with the pancreas hit all at once, or a slow degeneration? Again, what results should I zero in on for potential problems with the pancreas? Thanks for any replies.
Avatar f tn I found information on Plechner's syndrome online and took Tink to another vet who tested her blood and started steroid treatment-after learning her thyroid and immunology panels were all low. We also switched her food to Natural Balance duck and potato dry food. At the time December 2015 her creatinine was 1.1, BUN was 37. Since December, she has not had hives a single time. I thought she was doing well. She recently was peeing in the bed at night, I was prescribed Proin for her.
