Signs of pancreatitis in humans

Common Questions and Answers about Signs of pancreatitis in humans


902019 tn?1249865014 It was a bit more intense on my right side but only slightly off center. The docs would always ask about pain in the back (typical of pancreatitis) and I never had any pain there. Could never come up with any definitive correlation with anything e.g. what I ate, how much I ate etc. They gave me Nexium 2x a day to calm the stomach but that had no effect at all. Still a mystery.
793908 tn?1294708709 Julie had another Pancreatitis attack...she had diarreah & vomiting. I was prepared this time...I was scared but it was either me treating her or the ER Vet for 4 days again. I came to terms with my decision to treat her at home. I called my Vet & he said to give her the Flagyl that he gave me 2 wks. ago...just in case this attack happened again. I did & It worked after 1 day but I kept her on it all week.
1560663 tn?1298050127 We give her laxatone when she starts showing signs of the problem reoccurring. If I put miralax or anything in her food she will not eat it. Any suggestions?
129422 tn?1222703189 Most recent blood work shows no signs of pancreatitis, but something has to be going on. Vet now (today) says perhaps we are dealing with a food allergy and wants us to come back in for another blood draw after 12 hours fasting. Says this blood will be sent for very specific workup to rule out gastro/intestinal issues. But if anyone has some info that could be helpful, I would sure like to hear it.
Avatar f tn I feel for all of you. To the person inquiring about the itchiness- in humans when your blood phosphorus is high, itchiness is a symptom ang with the shaking/tremors. My dog suddenly staryed rubbing her chin in her paws a few days ago, desperately. And her ears are red. Have been using oil of oregano pet ear drops and Melissa's aloe for pets. Right now I am staying up with my beloved Lulu, a 14.5 year old Staffordshire Terreir and my best friend.
6246858 tn?1382272876 It WAS a heart attack, inspite of the tech finding nothing significant on all of the tests! She was heart broken over Spike and maybe that level of stress would not show in an eco cardiogram. I don't know. She was so smart and that morning she knew that Spike was struggling, she came to me as if to ask me something. I stopped what I was doing and sat with her, I said, "what sweetheart, what's wrong, you look nervous and upset? Are you worried about brother?
1916673 tn?1420236870 I do add safe vegetable and have made treats from the dog food baked in the oven. She shows no signs, she goes potty outside, she drinks, she eats, but the vet is concerned she is high risk for a dental which she needs badly. She is Shih Tzu and has had her teeth done every two years since about the age of 9. I want her to have the dental but with the vet telling me it is risky I am torn. I am trying a holistic treatment for her teeth which is not helping.
Avatar m tn 200 ounces per pound of body weight. It takes 250 pounds of white chocolate to cause signs of poisoning in a 20-pound dog, 125 pounds for a 10-pound dog. Milk chocolate: 1 ounce per pound of body weight. Approximately one pound of milk chocolate is poisonous to a 20-pound dog; one-half pound for a 10-pound dog. The average chocolate bar contains 2 to 3 ounces of milk chocolate. It would take 2-3 candy bars to poison a 10 pound dog. Semi-sweet chocolate has a similar toxic level.
429155 tn?1205676864 30, back to bed, and after a lot of thrashing about, holy of holies I sleep for 3 hrs, wake up and dressing gown is drenched in sweat, back to bed get another 1hrs sleep, then up at 07:30. It's now Monday. Monday 0945.Am feeling a bit better now, go see boss at work to explain ( goes ok ). then have a drive round, I find I am noticing things I took for granted before, things are in much sharper focus. Although I had real bad stomach cramps, the Flu like symtoms have all but gone.
Avatar f tn Benadryl is also something of an anti-emetic, and can be given at 1 mg per pound of the dog's weight, but I doubt it will be very effective in the face of this kind of vomiting. Worth a try though. Another thing that helps is calcium - lots of it. I was giving Chica 2 Tums a day during her last couple of months. The calcium binds to phosphorus which is deadly to those in renal failure.
Avatar m tn All these symptoms (cough, feeling of lump in the throat, a lot of mucus) are signs of GERD. As I read on the Internet, one of the causes of GERD is in reducing of the tone of the lower esophageal sphincter. Things that lead to a decrease in the tone of the lower esophageal sphincter: -alcohol; - analgesics and some antibiotics; -coffein; -chocolate; -smoking; - progesterone (for women); -stress -and others factors.
Avatar f tn I imagine that he has some stories of his own about me and all the other silly humans in his life. Not to mention his sense of humor. I'm glad you gave me this important reminder!
Avatar f tn However, if a dog has a bad immune system, they can get sick from things like raw or rotten chicken. Since your dog is showing signs of gastrointestinal distress with diarrhea, you may want to call your vet. But really, food poisoning from spoiled food or raw food is very rare in dogs as they have so much stomach acid. Since your dog is showing signs of it though, you will want to have him checked. Dogs and dehydration happen.
931217 tn?1283484935 One study has examined the relationship between neutering and the development of age-related behavioral changes thought to be similar to Alzheimer's disease or other forms of senile dementia in humans.[106] Such changes are relative common, being reported in 28% of dogs 10-12 years old and 68% of dogs 15-16 years old.
Avatar n tn don't harp on that in your mind. Most of us hope for dignity the end of our winter, in my opinion our companions do too. Don't allow that memory to over take you repeatedly, your companion deserves his or her dignity. Remember that. Of you do both of your spirits will learn to flourish.

Avatar m tn For a couple of days he stayed in the hospital. the pancreatitis was healing but now he was diagnosed with pneumonia. More meds. And he was sent home. Now still with a fever, leaking diarrhea, and not eating. Again, he passed out and was rushed to the hospital. This time, they are saying its a brain tumor. It's just all so odd. This was a once healthy dog who ate better than us. He had a great diet, awesome energy, and thought he was a puppy. One episode of pancreatitis leads to this?!
390388 tn?1279639813 Her urine output is nothing compared to what she is taking in and no bm for 4 days so I'm cringing at the thought of a partial blockage/blockage. She is 17 years old and God bless her still runs the rabbits. She is my faithful Lady. Well she just got excited and urinated on the floor (glad to see the output; but, not the results) so I checked it (right off the floor so the numbers are probably not accurate) nevertheless; the strip showed bilrubin +++++, SG 1.025, Bld. ?
Avatar n tn But for some reason, Ham upsets their stomachs. Dogs that I had in the past have also reacted badly to anything more than a bite of ham. Go figure...Rocks are ok, ham not so much. Hope your baby is feeling better.
Avatar f tn They had been punished for having defecated in the past, and attempt to clean up out of fear of being punished again. 4. From boredom[dubious – discuss]. 5. In an attempt to clean up in crowded conditions[citation needed]. 6. Mimicry of behavior observed when their caretakers pick up feces (allelomimetic behavior). This is highly improbable because the behavior has also been observed in environments where caretakers never picked up the dog's (or other's) feces. 7.
Avatar f tn He was very lethargic and kept going limp in my arms. I gave him three syringes of Karo syrup thinking his blood sugar was low. He seemed to get better for a few minutes, then he started falling on the floor. He would get back up and fall again. We brought him to the vet that night. The vet immediately decided that he had eaten some type of poison or medicine. I told him that I had not seen this. He asked me if he had fallen with a paddling motion of his feet, I told him no.
Avatar n tn 6 (normal range = 0.5 - 5.5) My Selenium result of 135 would have been in the lower 25% of the previous normal range (79 - 326), but the 135 result is in the middle of the current normal range (91 - 198). I am not sure as to why the normal range was changed. However, because excessive Selenium can be toxic, and because my Selenium value is at mid-normal range, I probably should not take any Selenium supplements at this time. My Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol) result of 6.
12980073 tn?1429819661 Tony, thank you so much and it is so great to have wonderful people around to share this journey with. I am hopeful that Willow can turn this around and show signs of return to normal function of her kidneys. I will absolutely keep you posted. No, she is not on any dry dog food...only canned or raw. Karla, thank you as well. No, there was never a test done for Lepto.
Avatar f tn Her bloodwork had been checked 10 months before in a senior screen, where it was in the upper level of normal. The mass turned out to be benign. She had fluids before and after the surgery. Her numbers were creatinine 2.0 and BUN 50. I think her SDMA was 22. She did not fast prior to bloodwork since we just went in to evaluate the mass, when our Vet decided to remove it and wanted to do the bloodwork.
Avatar m tn It is so strange but he does not seem to feel bad and is extremely active but is not showing any signs of pain or weakness. No loss in appetite either. He kept me up all night three nights ago and again last night with constant moaning. It is very strange. I want to take him to the vet but it sounds like your dog and mine are doing the same thing and you didnt have any results from all your vet visits.
181575 tn?1250202386 Entecavir is 100-fold more potent than lamivudine or adefovir. In a 2006 study of 673 patients using monotherapy of entecavir 3% showed virologic rebound in 96 weeks of which 3 patients had lamivudine-resistant virus at start of treatment. A 2007 study indicated that the cumulative probability of virologic breakthrough associated with entecavir resistance was 0.8% over 4 years. 4.
Avatar f tn 1 in July to 1.0 in October. Her urinalysis had a gravity of 1.018 both months. A trace amount of protein was found, but no number indicated. Trace amount of blood was found in October (not July), but no number to indicate how much. In July, she was sucking down water like there was no tomorrow and she had a few accidents in the house. Over the course of her surgery recovery and and administering of antibiotics, she hasn't had anymore accidents and has been drinking normal amounts of water.
342585 tn?1211994706 Light Gray/ Chalk White/ Pale Yellow This type of color of stools is common in babies who ingest moo-juice and who are on milk-only diets or in babies who are given antacids for stomach ache. However, such stools can also indicate blockage of bile ducts, which requires medical attention. Pale colored, and/or fatty and bad smelling stools are indicative of celiac disease or mild intolerance to gluten.
233616 tn?1312790796 this hormone is produced in the pituitary and is ESSENTIAL to tissue repair which occurs mostly at night in 3rd and particularly 4th stage sleep. the goal of treatment is not just to kill the virus but to see the liver repair itself. FOR SOME REASON Hepatitis can stop the pituitary from functioning. If this happens the disease progresses rapidly, and you feel far worse than your years with lots of odd ailments popping up. The test you need to ask for is called an IGF-1.
