I have chronic pancreatitis. I have found information that says to stay away from milk based products. Our diets should consist of carbs like: sweet potatos, peas, lima beans, carrots, black beans, winter squash, turnip, parsnip, garbanzo beans, yam and pumpkin.
We can also use garlic, onion, leek, black pepper, ginger, cinnamon, fennel, garlic and nutmeg for seasonings.
I have substituted meat for protein with soy protein drinks that are low-fat with low-sugar.
I started drinking chlorophyll and it has helped me as well.
I've been eating bananas, apples, and some other fruits.
As for breads, I stick to the whole-grain breads.
I'm also taking supplements:
Calcium (since milk products are not helpful to the pancreas)
Vitamin B Complex, including B-12 injections
Probiotics like liquid acidophoulus.
Multivitam (something that is easily absorbed - preferrably liquid
This has helped me a ton. My doctor took my bloodwork last Tuesday and my Lipace levels are now normal. She told me to stick to the diet I created for myself from friends and the internet. So far, it's working. The pain and bloatedness has gone away.
Always check with your doctor before adding anything to make sure they don't conflict with any medications you are taking. Good luck!!!
i am so glad I finally found someone with the same problem as I have, chronic pancreatitis. I have been going on a trial and error diet and don't want to get the pain and misery again! I did broil some chicken breast and had no problems. Also can eat about 2 ounces of tuna packed in water. As the pancreatitis has caused me to be diabetic that also causes problems. I am eating several small meals each day.
Wouold be glad of any suggestions that have worked for some body else.
