Pancreatitis treatment fever

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis treatment fever


422425 tn?1307996590 I have been searching on the net for information about Autoimmune Pancreatitis. I was diagnosed with this disease in July of 2007. My doctors were sure I had cancer because I had a mass the size of a golf ball on the tail of my pancreas. I also have masses in my kidneys. I was very relieved to find out it was NOT cancer, but an autoimmune respose to something. My question is.....has anyone else in this community been told they have this, and did the treatment work for you.
Avatar f tn I have been doing research online regarding Autoimmune Pancreatitis. I am noticing no case studies done in my sons age group, treatment is corticosteroids/steroid saving therapies, over a prolonged period of time. In all the research i have been reading there is no data regarding long term prognosis , or quality of life in persons with this disorder. Another concern of mine is if he has to go on a steroid long term, what about schooling?

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?
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.
750120 tn?1252458630 One is to discontinue treatment and the other is to delay treatment until the pancreatitis has cleared up then start again slowly. Blood work they took today will determine the course of action they choose. The pancreatitis is extremely painful but morphine is extremely effective (smiling).
Avatar n tn My suggestion to you is to stop eating. I know that sounds awful, but the treatment for pancreatitis is for no food for at least 2 - 3 days. This is what they do if you were to be hospitalized. You want to rest your pancreas so it can heal. When you eat it causes it to work causing more stress to the organ. Drink lots of water. The diet once you feel better is a very strict low fat diet, as the pancreas's job is to help digest fat.

Avatar n tn The latest attack started about a week ago with the same severe pain, and fever as high as 102-103. Progressively since 1999 (first attack) he has had his blood sugar counts going up real high during these attacks and following that too theyve become more erratic. He is a diabetic since he was 37 yrs old (he now is 58). He has since been hospitalized. endoscopy ruled out gastric infections again. All kinds of blood tests show no real abnormality.

Avatar m tn Stage of Research EAE mice treated daily with anti-histamine receptor 1 have decreased disease severity and delayed onset of the disease compared to controls. Also, treatment with antihistamine receptor 1 leads to significant changes in the serum IgG recognition of some healthy brain antigenic targets. Advantage Safe - antihistamines are established drugs with less severe side effects than current MS treatments e.g.

Avatar f tn It could be many different things. Could be gas, indigestion, acute pancreatitis, or a few other things. I'd skip the general practitioner and try to go straight to a GI. They will probably run blood tests at first. Hopefully that will help figure out the exact cause.

Pancreatitis Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas. It can cause the body’s digestive enzymes to attack the pancreas. In severe cases, the disease can cause tissue damage, infection, cyst formation and bleeding. The damage can spread to other organs like the heart, kidneys and lungs, and the mortality rate is 10 to 30 percent.
Avatar f tn How Is Pancreatitis Treated? Treatment for acute pancreatitis People with acute pancreatitis are treated with IV fluids and pain medications in the hospital. In up to 25% of patients, the pancreatitis can be severe and patients may need to be admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU). In the ICU, the patient is closely watched because pancreatitis can damage the heart, lungs, or kidneys. Some cases of severe pancreatitis can result in death of pancreatic tissue.

Flagyl no longer controls the colitis flare when I do have to take antibiotics. 17 months ago I had an open cholecystectomy due to a ruptured gallbladder. My surgeon has relocated to another city and other surgeons in this area are hesitant to take my case due to its complexity.
