Pancreatitis what to eat

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis what to eat


Avatar n tn Since being released from hospital I keep having minor attacks of pain, but they seem to be getting worse. I am weak also. I do not drink. It does not seem to be related to what I eat. I am 6' and weigh 200lbs. Doctors are stumped. Does anyone have any experience with symptoms of pancreatic cancer?
Avatar f tn Yes - I suffer from chronic pancreatitis and had SOD. Back in 2006 I had SOD surgery. I also suffer from IBS. Also, one doctor thought I had gastroparesis because I had an abnormal emptying study last year, but I just returned from Mayo and the emptying study came back normal. Also, most recent doctor thought I had Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth and put me on Cipro for 8 days. Now I don't know if the pain is from my stomach/antibiotics or the pancreas.
Avatar n tn ive had all the test you could possibly think of,ive been in the hospital over 50 times,ive had my gallbladder removed because they thought that was the reason for my pancreatitis,ive had stints placed in my pancreas,ive had so many iv's that i dont have any veins left in my hands,arms,or feet so they gave my a port which got infected so they had to remove it so now when i have to go to the hospital they put them in my neck or i have to have a central line...
Avatar n tn I have chronic pancreatitis and have been taking enzymes since July to help me digest food, not have pain with eating, and to gain weight. They have been very helpful for me and I am able to eat a lot fat diet with few problems, and have gained some of my weight back. If you wish me to answer any more specific questions, please feel free to post again.
Avatar f tn So I have a referral to a surgeon to see if he can find out what is going on. Maybe this it what you need to do also. They need to rule out one thing at a time. I know I do not have food allergies.
Avatar f tn So the gave her something to put her to sleep.we trying to figure out what to give her to eat that wont cause pain..

So I would suggest that you have CT scan of the abdomen done. ================================================================ The information provided is for patients’ education only and is not a medical advice.

Avatar n tn 5/12/09 i was rushed to the ER after about 4 an hour of the worse pain imaginable, i had this same attack 3 other times, same symptons vomitting severe pain in my abdomain all the way to my back we have to great hospital here but each time they would say you pulled some thing give a couple shots and perscriptions this last time i went buy ambulance i was so out of it they just took me to the other one i got in the they got the info of what was happening ran a x ray drew blood and then did a cat
719251 tn?1230344505 The reason for her condition is Alcohol (sad to say). The Doctors seem to just think that she is ok, but to me she is NOT. The vomitting part is terrible, how can she get better if what ever she eats she brings up?? Thank you very much for your reply.
Avatar n tn I went to my primary care physician yesterday. He seems to think that it might be pancreatitis and that I should go back to my gastrointerologist. Could a pancreatic attack happen out of the clear blue sky? Does anyone think this is what it might be??? I'm anxious to hear from others. Thanks for your time. Have a WONDERFUL Day!!!
Avatar n tn Keep her as warm and comfortable as possible. Take her lead on what she feels up to doing and let her stop whenever she wants to. Give her your time mostly. Fix a nice spot on the floor and lay down with her, pet her, talk soothingly to her and make eye contact. If she is allowed to sleep on your bed you may have to help her up and down. Prepare the bed for accidents or vomitting. Plastic mattress and pillow covers and old bedding.
Avatar f tn People with CP often end up taking digestive enzymes to help digest food and they often are advised to eat very low fat and avoid alcohol and smoking. You can have flares of acute pancreatitis so always go to er if you feel it coming on.
Avatar f tn It is the same exact symtoms as last time so i really dont need to pay a couple hunred dollars for them to tell me what i already know. Will it just go away after a couple days maybe after the cat food works its way out of his system?
Avatar n tn My surgeon called me today saying he was surprised by my MRCP results as they did an MRI when I was having the gallbladder surgery and no ducts were dilated at that time. Said he was taking my films to a GI doc to see what they had to say as the next step and go from there. Makes me very nervous. I'm hoping the dilatation will go down on its own as an ERCP really scares me in setting off an acute attack. Pain today and yesterday and not sure what from.
Avatar n tn 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 n tn I also have bloating and major pain when I eat. My abdomen gets hard and feels very extended. The pain is now going up my shoulder blade and into my hip. Can you tell me if I should worry about having chronic pancreatits or pancreatic cancer?
Avatar m tn ive seen countless doctors wth all say the same thing and ive been hospitalized so many times they know me by name, and to every hospital within my distance of living. i am constanly tired and out of energy along wih forcing myself to eat just to function, when im not waking up from pain. either dull but when bad, stabbing and sharp. when i do get tested all is fine in the blood and urine. its bad when i am happy my emzyme count is high it shows im not lying.
517981 tn?1216785618 My lamase level was 310 which isn't to high but what happened to not having to worry about my pancreas. I came home sat and monday night was throwing up. Anyone have this problem with their pancreas that might be able to give me some advice.
Avatar f tn She is home now 4 days and is going outside with our other cats, sleeping well and meowing like always, just we don't see her eat or drink. I am just so confused as to what to do next. Vet just called me and told me her thyroid test was fine. Can you tell me what I should do next?
Avatar f tn I also rapidly gained back about 40 pounds in the last year, and can't seem to loose a single pound no matter what I do!!! I asked the doctor about this and he said it could be due to the gallstones/pancreatitis, and my body not being able to digest food properly. And that I will probably loose weight after having gallbladder removed. IS this true?? I am concerned about having the surgery because I see that allot of people say the GAIN weight afterwards!!
Avatar f tn According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse" "The most common cause of chronic pancreatitis is many years of heavy alcohol use. The chronic form of pancreatitis can be triggered by one acute attack that damages the pancreatic duct. The damaged duct causes the pancreas to become inflamed. Scar tissue develops and the pancreas is slowly destroyed." You can't live without your pancreas, so if it's destroyed, the end result will not be a happy one.
Avatar f tn hi i have been having pain under my mid rib cage for almost all my life around 20 years ago i went to the er for the pain xrays showed my gall bladder was enlarged they admitted me that night and removed it the next morning the doctor said it was badly diseased but i still continued to have the pain my stomach doctor said i have barretts esphogus and did a nissen wrap to avoid cancer it failed and i had to have another that also failed so the third surgery was a bad one they had to remove half m
665361 tn?1225276972 burping, right-sided discomfort, discomfort between where your ribs meet at the bottom of the rib cage and any changes in bowel habits or nausea. The other thing you want to do is find out if the pancreatitis could be due to an auto-immune issue.
Avatar f tn He got discharged from hospital on december 15 after coming home,he again feels pains in his stomach on 30th december,after that he is admitted again on 31 december then again he is not given anything to eat for a weak after his pain settle down he got discharged on 7 january 2008.Again after 5 days he again suffers from pain on 11 january and again admitted to hospital for 10 days and discharged on 20 january.even now he is not able to digest anything.
Avatar n tn If she isn't able to hold down water, I honestly think she needs to go back in hospital. The way pancreatitis is treated is by allowing that organ to rest through literal starvation. Same treatment holds for human patients too. The dog is given IV hydration and nutrition, nausea and pain control, and then you wait it out. Is she eating anything at all? I hope your vet explained that avoiding fats is very important right now - and in the future.
1300834 tn?1273126954 We recently switched ours from Beneful ( which is junk) to Evo, and she loves it. I'm not sure what you have to look for in the ingredients though because of the pancreatitis, but it has no grain, which is a plus.
Avatar n tn I posted couple of weeks ago . I went to the Er on 3-11 & was admitted for 4 days for pancreatits with mildly elevated Lipase (28) & a -sudden- severe pain in upper right quadrant(close to breastbone) that went straight thru to the back that was excruciating after eating that night. I also have ongoing pain in my back and a 'shooting & spasiming pain ' thats tolerable for now directly in my left ribs.
Avatar f tn Just some thoughts to ease your mind. Once its determined why these bloodwork results are abnormal and the offending cause is found your #s can come back to normal range. The ALT and AST are high because you have inflammation in your liver. They DON'T mean that your liver is scarred and beyond repair, only that something in your body is causing distress. Once that is eliminated those #s will be back within the regular range. Your glucose #s indicate sugar.
Avatar n tn Well I'll try to explain to you what i typically go thru. Seems like my pancreas pain and pancreatitis pain are kinda seperate. they seem to have different symptoms but as the same,,,if you understand what im trying to say. my stomach stays sore between my ribs right in the center, it's sore to the touch, my bach ached right up the center and it usually hurts in the left shoulder blade, kinda feels like a burning stabbing pain. it hurts under my left rib cage more like a aching burning pain.
Avatar n tn On the other hand, how wonderful for me that he is so intuned with my illness that he knows what to do should the need arise. I try to keep my fat intake to 25 grams or less. I have heard of others going below 20 grams of fat, but that isn't healthy for the body. You should be on some enzyme suppliment foods to help digest what you do eat. I have bouts of pain with my pancreas. I just had a CT Scan and found no cancer, tumors or psudocysts. YEAH for me.
