Pancreatitis triglycerides

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis triglycerides

pancreatitis

Avatar n tn I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and my blood work showed a very high Triglycerides level of over 5,000. I was told that this could lead to Pancreatitis. I am on two medications and a diet to lower the Triglycerides. My question is, what are the chances that I will develop Pancreatitis before I can get the Triglycerides under control?
Avatar m tn So please double-check anything you read here with other sources including your doctor. That said, I also had high Amylase and high Triglycerides for much of treatment. I also self-diagnosed myself with possible pancreatitis after doing a Google search under "high amyalyse".
Avatar f tn Dr said I am pre diabetic and that if my triglycerides pass 500 that it means pancreatitis. I am just worried because my mother suffered from Hep C (however I have tested negative). I hardly have any sugar in my diet however I dont eat very well, some times if at all. I will work on eating more veg/fruit. I am just so concerned because i have never had irregular blood work.
Avatar n tn My triglycerides are incredibly high. Does chewing Nicorette gum play a part in this?
Avatar n tn 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. Kidney Function & Liver function normal.I have had normal MRCPs & ERCPS .
Avatar m tn my 30 year old sister, non-drinker, on birth control pills, has been having epigastric pain for a couple of weeks, Blood work shows, elevated amylase levels (not elevated lipase), high triglycerides (rest of the cholesterol tests are normal). Her CT scan shows no problems to the pancreas but some fat infiltration to the liver. The doctors are not sure exactly why she is presenting this way.
Avatar m tn Triglycerides: 1,765 mg/dl, HDL: 21, LDL: NP (serum index for lipemia to high to report), and Total Cholesterol: 273. I fasted for 12 hrs prior to this since I am an RN and know the importance. Trending some of my past test they seem to have been creeping up since May and June of 2014 when I started Nexium 40mg daily for GERD and Celebrex 200mg daily for arthritis. I am wondering if one of these medications can be driving this train since the correlation is there.
Avatar n tn Dear Ken, The risk of acute pancreatitis secondary to hypertriglyceridemia (elevated triglyceride levels) usually occurs only after serum levels are greater than 1000 mg/dl. Triglycerides in VLDL (endogenous triglycerides) are increased by excess calories, especially the proportion of calories from refined carbohydrates and by alcohol. Triglycerides are decreased by n-3 fatty acids in fish oils.
1124204 tn?1292229577 I am a 28 year old pack a day smoker I used to binge drink a lot from 19-27 years old and recently have cut down tremendously I have never been diagnosed with pancreatitis but I do suspect from my symptoms this is what the cause of my problems are..my recent lab tests showed everything normal except triglycerides at 277 which was really low for me I have been dieting the last year..............
Avatar f tn Mark Lupo, I have one more question Dr Lupo iam also suffering from high pancreatitis which showed from blood work that amylase =160 and lipase=2950 and also hyperthyroid which i mentioned in my previous question.My question is that hperthyroid can also cause pancreatitis.please help me.
Avatar n tn Here is a question and answer that I found by googling "Pancreatitis & Nicorette." Q. My triglycerides are incredibly high. Does chewing Nicorette gum play a part in this? A. by Anita Ramsetty, MD Oct 01, 2008 07:58PM Hello, Nicorette does not significantly contribute to this, not to my knowledge.
104652 tn?1196603908 the GI doc immediately put him on Tricor to lower it...because if it stays high that long (over 1000) it can lead to pancreatitis! he is due to have his first blood test since taking the tricor..and its one of those drugs not to use with liver disease but i guess it was the worse of two evils.. they had to lower his tryglycerides first and foremost. has anyone else here had this experience with interferon ? i have googled it and see it can happen . if you did..how did they treat it?
Avatar n tn Because you're still eating too many carbs. I'd go below 100 g/day of carbs if I were you. That's the only way to lower your TG level. Keep in mind that there are different kinds of LDL - they are not all created equally. The larger fluffier LDL particle sizes are different from the smaller, denser kind. The larger LDL, type A pattern, is pretty harmless, whereas the small dense LDL, type B, is the kind that runs up the risk for heart disease.
Avatar n tn I recently had a comprehensive digestive stool analysis done that revealed my total fecal fat to be elevated along with my fecal triglycerides also indicating no lactobacillus growth. (I also have candida). My pH balance is normal. I have been researching and pancreatitis seems to fit many of my factors but the docs don't take me seriously. I am not a drinker, only 30 years old and very physically fit. Also I just can't keep weight on. Can anyone help me please???
Avatar f tn I did see my practioner and my labs were out of wack. Cholesterol up, Ldl up, and triglycerides greater that 700. And my RBC's are elevated. My WBC's are usually elevated due to smoking. I did have a sonogram and it showed some enlargement of my liver and I don't remember exactly what she said except that there were some "hypoechoic" areas on the liver. She mentioned stones or cysts as a possibility on my liver. I have never heard of liver stones......
Avatar n tn I have had acute pancreatitis and now have chronic pancreatitis. The lab that tests my bloodwork says that with amylase, anything over 88 is high, lipase, anything over 63 is high. Some labs allow a higher range for both, but even those adjusted levels are less than your daughter's levels. Her lipase is especially high. Her triglycerides are high. Another important indicator. Don't buy it!
4454327 tn?1405206728 There is no history of pancreatitis in family, except my grandmother died from pancreatic cancer. Just wondering if there is a chance that this could have been the start of Chronic Pancreatitis. Any ideas or input would be welcome. Thank you.
Avatar f tn In women with inherited defects of lipid metabolism, there have been reports of significant elevations of plasma triglycerides during estrogen therapy. This has led to pancreatitis in some cases. I stopped using the Nuvaring immediately. Never during that whole time I was in the hospital or months afterwards did any doctor link the pancreatitis to the NuvaRing. I remember having bleeding in the hospital a week early even though the ring was still in.
Avatar n tn Any help in identifing what might be causing my husband to have the following problems would be greatly appreciated! He presented to the ER on Sept 15th with severe epigastric pain. Lipase was 11,000 & amylase was 5,331, liver enzymes normal, glucose normal, and triglycerides normal, Other abnormal labs included RBC 3.96(L), HGB 12.0(L), HCT 34.7(L), lymphs 15.1(L), ABS monocyte 0.6(H). He was admitted with acute pancreatis. Put NPO/given IV's and pain meds and sent home in 4 days.
Avatar n tn She does not drink - - however they assume she is lying about that because of the pancreatitis. Please explain to me the correlation between pregnancy, pancreatitis, and the addiction. She takes approximately 20-40 vicodin a day (or more)even during pregnancy. Knowing this can you explain how this medication can terminate a pregnancy and cause pancreatitis?
Avatar n tn I too have very high triglycerides, my levels were slightly higher and I ended up have a problem with my pancraus (spelling) Right after my last visit to the doctor, my levels were 650 tri, I am 6 ft 190 and in pretty good shape, what are you doing to help with this?
Avatar n tn Medications, such as estrogen replacement therapy, can cause elevated triglycerides. Large amounts of alcohol intake can elevate triglycerides. If someone has an isolated elevation of triglycerides with no other abnormality, a genetic deficiency can be the cause. While there are effective medications to reduce triglyceride levels, the first step is always dietary modification (and eliminating alcohol intake). In particular, reducing fat intake (especially saturated fat) is important.
238668 tn?1232735930 triglycerides posted by Jeanine Barone on August 30, 1998 at 16:30:22: I'm a healthy, athletic, 40 year old woman (non smoker, non drinker and underweight for my height). I just had my blood lipids measured for the first time and was told everything was fine. But when I asked for the numbers, my physician said: TC 150, HDL 40, ratio: 308 and TG 500!! I freaked out but he said there was nothing to worry about and simply suggested my having a retest in 2 weeks.
Avatar f tn I suffer from chronic pancreatitis, almost died in 2003, was under control until now. my cause is high triglycerides. I am not not a big hospital fan but at present my amalyse is 150mmo/l , normal is 89. My triglycerides is 30u/l, normal is 1.7. I have nausea when i eat and an achy pain in my back. My question is, should I be heading off to the hospital?????
Avatar f tn The doctors said it was inflamed but there were no stones and no other explanation. Then, I had Pancreatitis about a year ago due to high Triglycerides. At the time, the doctors were checking me for diabetes because I guess those things are related. Generally Pancreatitis is caused by gallstones or excessive drinking. I am not an excessive drinker and by then my gallbladder had been removed. I just went for a follow-up this afternoon and now my doc wants to check my Thyroid.
Avatar n tn My wife (33) is 11 weeks pregnant (3rd, first two normal with alot of nausea but not HG) and was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis 3 weeks ago (&dehydration/hyperemesis). She has has been on TPN for 21 days (in patient)plus fluids and Zofran for nausea. An ECRP was performed 7 days ago and found no obstructions, possibly sludge, and 9mm sphincterotomy was performed at papilla of vater, ducts looked OK.
Avatar n tn Dear Charlotte, The most common causes of acute pancreatitis in the United States are alcoholic pancreatitis and gallstone pancreatitis. Many patients with so-called idiopathic (unknown cause) pancreatitis end up having microlithiasis (small stones or crystals in the biliary tree). There are many other causes of acute pancreatitis but they are less common.. I will list them for you.
