Pancreatitis symptoms weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis symptoms weight loss


Avatar n tn I have had acute pancreatitis and now have chronic pancreatitis, so maybe I can answer some of your questions. Some symptoms of pancreatitis include a swollen and tender abdomen, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, sometimes a fever and rapid pulse. Weight loss is frequent. The nausea, pain and vomiting often follows a meal of some sort, and can be triggered more severely by foods heavy in fats. Often there is pain in the abdomen and between the ribs at the base of the sternum.
Avatar f tn In pancreatitis, nutrients the dog needs are passed out in the feces, thus probably the reason for the weight loss (and that is quite a bit). Has he been checked for diabetes? If the Vets your Vet has called can't come up with any other possible treatment, assuming the above is being done, I would suggest a call to a University Vet Hospital, if there is one in your area. Like the closest one to me is UC Davis in Sacramento.
Avatar n tn So if anyone knows anything about pancreatitis or that has had it, could you please tell me what your symptoms are.
Avatar n tn This is suppossed to be one of the symptoms of pancreatitis, but I have not idea what that would look like. Mine is floating most of the time. I am also constipated most of the time. I thought diarreha would be more of a symptom for pancreatitis? I'm going back to the dr. next week, but was hoping to get some ideas of what might be going on.
Avatar f tn I almost went to the emergency room due to my weight loss. My normal weight is 98 lbs and I was down to 88 lbs. I am getting an allergic reaction to almost all of the food I eat!
Avatar n tn I've been evaluated for Cystic, autoimmune, gluten intolerance, and just about anything you can imagine and the best I've been able to do is minimize weight loss. 2nd opinion EUS at Cleve Clinic didn't see significant issue and doctor asked me to stop Creon. After getting sick a couple of weeks later, I resumed and was told to "treat symptoms". Recently diagnosed with Vit D deficiency for which I am now taking 8000 IU daily.

Avatar n tn 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. Every thing else has been pretty much normal other than a mildly increased ANA that has since been normal.

Weight loss with loss of appetite, occasionally with an aversion to meats, and a metallic taste in the mouth.
Avatar n tn However, last year I began to develop symptoms of pain in the center and left quadrant of my upper abdomen, nausea, mild weight loss. I would feel sick if I ate and sick if I didn't. I cut back to a very limited diet of fresh cooked foods, mainly poultry and vegetables, fruit and flat breads. I have improved symptom-wise except when under stress. However, my Amylase continues to be elevated and I am concerned, as is my doctor, about chronic pancreatitis leading to pancreatic cancer.
Avatar n tn They may make the water in the toilet look oily, smell offensive and be associated with bad wind. Weight loss occurs in virtually all patients with chronic pancreatitis. It is due to failure to absorb calories from food and diabetes may also contribute to this. In addition, patients may be afraid to eat because eating brings on the pain. Depression is also common in chronic pancreatitis and this can also reduce appetite and lead to weight loss.

Avatar n tn Most of the people who get sores have neuropathy, meaning loss of feeling, usually in the lower extremitiies. The parts of the body that suffer the most are the fet and hands. Weight loss and neuropathy and wounds that are hard to heal are often symptoms of diabetes, but I am NOT trying to diagnose, just saying that there may be something else besides his liver. I feel for you and know how frustrating it is to try to help someone you love.
902019 tn?1249865014 The symptoms of autoimmune pancreatitis for me were weight loss, pale stools, gallbladder-like attacks (but longer-lasting) and elevated liver function tests - which initially were thought to be a bile duct obstruction complicated by blockage of gallbladder sludge. Stenting the common bile duct and later removal of gallbladder (which was in bad shape) still didn't solve the problems. See my response (above) to DT10 for further info.
Avatar n tn MRI, EEG, UPR endoscopy, colonoscopy, x-rays, tons blood work 7-8/03 for more pain, weight loss, left face numbness, burning limbs, black out spells, headaches, slurring sometimes, brain fog...

Avatar m tn Dear Conor81, I appreciate your concern for your friend. Any loss of >10% of body weight in the last 6months or >5% of body weight in 3 months would constitute a significant weight loss.
Avatar m tn My sugar is still great but no more weight loss. I thought this was going to be my answer to weight loss prayers. I did have a lot of nausea and loss of appetite so I guess that had a lot to do with it. I have contacted the company but haven't gotten a reply. Let me know how you do.
Avatar n tn mid-abdominal pain that radiates to the back, weight loss, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty and pain digesting fats and proteins and fatigue. Not all people have all of these symptoms, some only a few. At the onset of my acute, and then later chronic pancreatitis, I had all of these symptoms at one time or another. Please feel free to email me if you have any further questions.
658828 tn?1225050195 I have been reading online and think I may have Pancreatitis? Are these symptoms consistent with Pancreatitis? I also have read about Fibromyalgia as well b/c these autoimmune diseases seem to occur together, but I just cant get myself to think that this is just a muscoskeletal pain problem especially since its mainly in the area where my kidneys are located. I have an appt with a GI dr next week so I am hoping i can get some answers.

Avatar f tn He is doing a BM every day, on a low fat diet with lots of snacks to try and build his weight. Can you please help or suggest any other possible reasons or test that can be done, he is not functioning he is extremely pale, tried to go back to school and they sent him home. he has the odd better day but once that pain kicks in it's extremely hard to stop it even with the medication.
Avatar n tn from years of worrying), match up quite a bit with chronic pancreatitis. I am not experiencing weight loss or diarrhea. I'm going to call my Gastroenterologist to see if I can get squeezed in. But, naturally, I'm terrified. Can any other illnesses also come across with these symptoms? Also, medscape has those depressing mortality figures. It sounds like I'm dead meat if I have this. One article said there is no treatment yet I hear of people who end up having surgeries.
Avatar n tn The location of your pain sounds very much like where mine was located before my first attack of acute pancreatitis. I now have chronic pancreatitis. I also had the yellow stools, either fatty or so oily that they would float. Also had the weight loss and inability to eat. Back ache is also a common complaint, but not everyone gets it. You need a second opinion.
Avatar m tn My doctor has offered me surgery at each visit and says if it is still there in Nov she will encourage I get it out so they can see what it is. I have not had any weight loss with it (unfortunately!! :o) ) Does this help?
Avatar m tn Over the past few months I have had digestive problems, throat and abdominal discomfort, and weight loss. Here are my symptoms: Almost every day I feel that part of my throat is swollen and I have a dull ache/discomfort in my throat. Sometimes it is higher in my throat, near my tonsils, and other days it is lower at the base of my throat (I’m assuming near my thyroid?). The discomfort is pretty consistently on the left side of my neck/throat. This has been going on for over a month now.
