I developed pancreatic disease.
I have been worsening the condition by taking the triggers (heavy food and alcohol).
Last April and July I could manage with a strict diet to bring the inflammation and enzyme levels down.
I am maintaining a low fat diet and I have reduced the amount of alcohol I consume. Then I was doing fine.
Two weeks ago, I had a heavy meal and too much alcohol and got an acute attack.
I was hospitalized and now I feel better as I strictly follow the diet.
The MRI scan which I took last week (1st August) shows an improvement than the CT scan taken in the month of July.
I am taking the following as maintenance medications:
I have the following questions:
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through your history and investigations.You are hypertensive, under medication for the same.
You are also under medication for anxiety, gastritis and reflux.You are having acute attacks of pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas).
If you continue taking heavy meals and alcohol, it might result in chronic pancreatitis, which in turn will cause irreversible changes in the pancreas.There is no medicine which can prevent pancreatitis if you continue taking alcohol and fatty fried meals.
I would suggest you to continue the medicines that you are taking and follow these instructions very strictly.
