Pancreatitis treatment herbs

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis treatment herbs


Avatar f tn (not my insurer). From their CT scan I was told I had pancreatitis, lipids and amylase where also high. I followed up with my insurance provider's GI specialist and an ultrasound, they were unable to provide me with any diagnosis..
Avatar f tn My vet has prescribed Chinese herbs as a compromise for now -- specifically Hyper Jia Bing aka Jia Kang Fang. I understand that herbs can't substitute for methimazole or other treatment for hyper-t, hyper-t is one of those diseases where holistic treatment is rarely, if ever, successful by itself.
Avatar f tn I have read that prednisone is a good treatment for pancreatitis in cats but I'm not sure if Wiz has this or if it is too strong a med at this point. Thanks for any help.
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 com/milk-thistle-dogs-benefits-side-effects/ But if you are new to herbal treatment for your dog -including other herbs, to support other organs -it can be a bit daunting. Also, not all herbs which are perfectly safe for humans -are safe for dogs. Also, most vets know little or nothing about herbal treatments. The absolute best course of action would be to consult a herbal or holistic vet. But of course, not everyone has access to a herbal vet.
Avatar n tn Is the treatment still as rough as chemo? I will get treatment but just was hoping to hear some positive imput other than the treatment works.
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 m tn Hi, How are you? Bubbles in the urine may be caused by presence of excess proteins in the urine, excess trapping of air in urine or passing of actual air (pneumatoria), a very rare condition caused by fistula between the bladder and the colon. There are no identifiable cause in most people who develop pancreatic cancer.
20820562 tn?1524881446 She was constipated and vomiting. The vet took blood work that showed she had pancreatitis and kidney disease. Her BUN was 76 and creatinine 5.6. Her pancreatic function numbers were (Am) 2148 and (LP) 2792. She was on IV fluids overnight and her numbers barely changed for her kidneys but her pancreas function numbers were (Am) 441 and (LP)550.
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 Last year I struggled with pain in my stomach, diarrhea when I ate anything, and pain in my joints. I was sent for a CT scan for possible pancreatitis, and they found prominent lymph nodes around my pancreas, and something in my colon. I was sent to GI specialist, and it was thought I had Crohn's disease. Had an upper endoscopy, and colonoscopy which only showed chronic gastritis, and hiatal hernia, and Barrett's esophagus.
Avatar f tn Whatever type of autoimmune hepatitis you have, the goal of treatment is to slow or stop your body's immune system from attacking your liver. This may help slow the progression of the disease. You should be seeking treatment from a liver transplant center if you are not already. Even if you do not need a transplant you will receive the best treatment available. Any other doctor even though their intentions are good just isn't qualified enough to treat your cirrhosis.
Avatar n tn i have no pain, but i didnot have pain last time. i also have hiv and my doc had to take me off my haart treatment, so i am concerned, but will except the outcome.
Avatar f tn I want to know if there is now a Diagnoses of Interferon Syndrome I not only went through 3 rounds of treatment for Hep C I had every possible side effect there is and wrote a few chapters of more sides, my Dr was a great man and did everything to help me but now almost 20 years later I am still suffering from almost everything I was during treatment and then some I have more diagnoses since treatment but is there a sound diagnoses of "Interferon Syndrome"
Avatar n tn I have recently been diagnosed with fatty liver. My symptoms started with a slight bloating, then progressed to feeling like a balloon was blown up under my right rib cage and severe bloating. Some of the time I look like I am 3-4 months pregnant. They did an ultrasound which showed some abnormalities in the liver, then a CT scan which showed a "fatty liver". I have read that a definite diagnosis can only be made through a liver biopsy, but yet my diagnosis was made.
Avatar f tn You can always work out a payment arrangement with the vet but the treatment for your dog should not be delayed. He could be suffering from congestive heart failure or some kind of virus. If he keeps throwing up, he may die of dehydration. Please get your dog to the vet ASAP. Take care of yourself as well. I wish you all the best.

1168110 tn?1272685917 From the multiple problems that you describe, it sounds like you have had a problem with one or more chronic infections that caused thyroiditis, pancreatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma and more (my wife actually had this complex multi-symptom condition). In many cases chronic infections can be attributed to the FMS, thyroiditis, pancreatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.
Avatar n tn STOP!!!!!!! Rimadyl & Pred. CANNOT be given together....It's dangerous....I'm surprised that the Vet gave your dog the steroid injection when he knew your dog was taking Rimadyl.....That should not have happened! However, your girl was feeling alittle better BECAUSE of the Steroid injection...... The Rimadyl has a wash out phase of 3 days......Then you can start the Pred. In the meantime, the Tramadol can still be safely given.....It is specifically just for pain.....
Avatar n tn I've been through a lot with this dog - shunt operation, loss of spleen, back disc causing lameness, and pancreatitis. With each ailment, I did the best research and gave him the absolute care. I even found an acupuncure vet that got him walking again. With the heart problem, I did do some research and all of it pointed to these meds. I read about herbs, too, but didn't consider them because my dog is so finicky... I knew it would be hard just to get him to take all the prescribed pills!
1462810 tn?1327364049 It's been a very, very stressful year, but of my two girls Gidget has generally (but not always) seemed to deal best -- both dogs (see photos) are sensitive to my state of mind. Went through most of a bottle of doggie calming herbs the past seven months. I was hospitalized last month for three weeks and strangers took care of them where I had been renting a room for only a week.
Avatar n tn so what are the list of diseases he should be testing for? also are you saying that if he had a gall stone stuck he could have had jaundice without any stomach pain? are you saying that since he is seeing an improvement he should consider the stone was expelled from the system?
Avatar n tn 197 Pancreatitis 198 Pancreatitis, sometimes fatal, has occurred during alpha interferon treatment. 199 PEGASYS should be suspended if symptoms or signs suggestive of 200 pancreatitis are observed. PEGASYS should be discontinued in patients 201 diagnosed with pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn Getting another opinion from a good hepatologist is always a good idea. First, of course, try and organize all your blood work and tests, in a manner that he can go through them quickly. That includes all labs, ultrasounds, mri's, biopsy reports and any slides you have possesion of. I always have "summary" sheet where all my major stats and test history are outlined. Some doctors ask for this in advance, some don't.
Avatar f tn I have an ~18 year old terrier mix rescue dog who developed chronic kidney disease--stage 2, about 2 weeks after an episode of acute pancreatitis—now about 7 weeks ago. He had been on metacam for degenerative joint disease (elbow, spine, hips) for about 2 years, so we have been monitoring his blood work at least every 6 months. His creatinine had been creeping up slowly, but entered the abnormal zone at 1.
1353650 tn?1429466974 I also decided to continue with my I.V. antibiotic treatment for another month. Everyone who I see in treatment tells me you really notice a difference after the second month. I am hopeful that this will happen. My husband had his picc line out on the 14th because of his terrible rash. The rash wouldn't seem to heal and he was prescribed Difulcan (anti-fungal oral medication) on the 24th. The Difulcan has really made a difference in helping the rash heal.
Avatar m tn Fortunately, the Levaquin seems to have cured the Bart by the time I had to stop. FYI - I've had worse herxing with Babesia treatment than I did with Lyme treatment. I didn't know this going into it, so it's been a surprise for me. Be sure to ask your doc about it when you start Mepron. (Mepron needs to be taken with ZIth.
Avatar n tn Diane, I was a pancreatitis sufferer. NO you do not need to be diabetic, etc. to have pancreatitis. I was born without the main common duct and did not have problems until my early 40's. Please take a few minutes to read my story - I think you will find it helpful with your mom's case. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. You will need to type in the web address to access my story. I ended up having my pancreas removed to get rid of the pain and stop malnutrition.
