My sis has pancreatitis and has had it for years, and she was put on a special diet to help treat it...here is a link to one very similar to hers
with acute attacks, I think they normally put you to the ER because of pain, etc...course, I'm no expert, but I hope she has dicipline in her eating habits, and sees a good doc about this issue...like with most diseases, time to really take care of ourselves, hope she's better soon...
I did not get pancreatitis during treatment but 5 months after stopping treatment. I too was doing fairly well with treatment until I reached my 4th month. I then just went downhill from there. Was told just side affects. I would suggest that your friend not set herself up by expecting immediate improvement. (I did). I wish her the best.
Thank you..pain will help motivate one alot.
DOES HAVING PANCREATITIS MAKE AT HIGHER RISK OF HEPATITIS ? MY HUSBAND HAS BLOOD WORK THE OTHER DAY BECAUSE HIS LIVER ENZYMES WERE SLIGHTLY ELEVATED DOES THIS SOUND REALLY DANGEROUS? IVE BEEN LOOKING ONLINE FOR DIFFERENT DIETS BECAUSE WE ARE BOTH UNHEALTHY EATER AND IT IS SO HARD TO CHANGE WHEN YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TYPES OF FOODS TO EAT OR MEALS TO PREPARE ANYONE HAVE ANY ADVICE ?
I too, was diagnosed with Pancreatits, and have high liver enzymes, my stomach was basically swollen shut. I was taken to the ER, given demerol for the severe pain, and was hospitalized for 6 days - being watched closely eating ice chips and water (one tablespoon) every few hours.. I was told I was dying, so scary...
Here is a book I found online that might help witht he diet issue: From what I understand a "low" fat diet is key. Keep me posted.
