A long-term and progressive inflammatory disease of the pancreas, that permanently affects the structure and function of the pancreas is called chronic pancreatitis. Long-term alcohol abuse is the most common cause. Other causes include autoimmune condition, blocked pancreatic or common bile duct, gene mutation due to cystic fibrosis, and family history. Some of the symptoms are abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and weight loss. People with this disease have to stop consuming alcohol and tobacco. As the function of the pancreas gets affected, most people develop diabetes, which is treated by administering Insulin. The treatment options are painkillers for pain or surgery, which is done to open blocked ducts or to resect part or total pancreatectomy.
