Pancreatitis can be either acute or chronic. It is the inflammation of the pancreas. I don't have to discuss in detail the anatomy as I don't have much time. In 80% of cases, acute pancreatitis is due to excessive alcohol use
or gallstones. This condition can also come about as a result of infection (such as helpatitis A or D or epstein-Barr virus) or the use of certian drugs.

Chronic pancreatitis is a condtion in which the inflammation has caused irreversible
changes in the microscopic structure of the gallbladder tissue. Because the pancreas is the gland that produces the hormone insulin and glucagon which regulates blood
sugar levels, pancreatitis-especially if chronic-often leads to glucose intolerance (diabetes) and digestive difficulties. If you develop symptom of pancreatitis which is usually severe pain that comes on suddenly, starting in or around the area of the navel and radiating to the back and is exacerbated by movement and relieved by sitting and may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, sometimes severe.

Other symptoms include upper abdominal swelling and distention, excessive gas.
fever, sweating, hypertension, muscle aches and abnormal fatty stools and pain is abdominal pain somewhat stabbing or burning, call your pysician as this is extremely a very serious condition that requires medical attention. A high level of triglycerides (fat inn the blood) is a factor in pancreatitis.

If you smoke, stop and try to avoid 2nd hand smoke. Studies showed that cigarette smoking link to chronic pancreatitis. Eat a diet low in fat and sugar. This is very
important for recovery. High levels of sugar and fats in the blood are common in pancreatitis. Consume no alcohol in any form. If you are prescribed with antibiotics, be sure to consume kefir and yogurt, and add some form of acidophilus to your dietary regime. Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer deaths in America.
