Local health food store suggested HCL with Pepsin. Hi Peaches — sorry to hear you too have joined the pancreatitis hall of pain. With your previous history of AP I would guess or at least hope that they again did blood work that checked your amylase and lipase levels.
You could be experiencing residual symptoms. The damage may have been enough to cause minimal change CP. CT is a great test but sometimes misses minute damage. EUS endoscopic ultrasound is often better at showing minimal damage and diagnosing early stage CP. I do take OTC enzymes. There are probably others that will do as well. Thank you for the kind words and God Bless you back.
I wish you better health and times. GI dr said AP attack may have been from the bacterial infections. I have family history both grandmothers passed from digestive issues. I read there can be a genetic disposition. Honestly, I must give you credit because in between my 1st and 2nd bout to the hospital is when I came across your blog while on Curezone. I just woke up felt fine, went to the bathroom and then all hell broke lose. I literally stayed in there all day. Over 15 hours before I made it to the ER.
The second time was this annoying, agitating tender pain, nausea and lose of appetite. Since I was released the 2nd time I started taking your recommended supplements. Failed to mention test showed kidney stones. Too large to pass so will have to be removed one day. Kidney specialist said they are non obstructive and not the cause of my pains.
Would you ever consider starting a foundation? I have no thoughts about a book, I am a horrible public speaker and get stage fright lol. Hi, I am having my blood checked for lipase and amylase levels. Would they always be high or only after you eat?
Would all foods trigger a pancreatic attack? What are somethings I could look into besides these enzyme tests? They do NOT elevate simply because you eat nor are they always high. Foods high in fat or alcohol are usually the foods that cause inflammation in a damaged pancreas and lead to an acute pancreatitis attack or a chronic pancreatitis flair.
That usually safe food would NOT normally trigger an attack or flair IF the pancreas was not already highly inflamed due to alcohol or high fat foods previously eaten. So do grapes cuase an acute attack? Do vegetables cause an acute attack? Do carrots and apples combined cause an acute attack? In essence it is theoretically possible for ANY food to trigger an attack but it is NOT likely unless a high degree of inflammation is already present and the fuse of the underlying bomb is very short.
Hi Lukus again, I have read more things on your blog. First let me back up to when it all started. Back in Oct of i started having a pain, a mere stitch in my side on my left side. It would come and go, more annoying than anything. Then it started happening more and more. I finally went to the doc, she said Pancreatitis. Ordered some enzymes tests, they came back normal. I kept having this pain like someone inflated a small balloon in my left side all the time.
It got worse when I tried to eat and I had a beer. I came back tot eh doc, she said it was probably an ulcer. Put me on meds Omeprezole. Stupid me, I took them without having an endoscopy. Anyway At someone point in December I have severe pain in my left side thought it was an ulcer — an endoscopy later revealed no ulcer went to the ER, the pain went straight through me to my back.
I cried, i rarely do. I was given morphine etc. However they did an ultrasound on my abdomen, several different times no indication of anything — or atlas they never mentioned it I even had a contrast CT at one point. However that mysterious night that the pain came out of the blue makes me wonder. I changed my diet drastically mostly to heal my gut- i still eat meat not as much and absolutely no junk food or alcohol anymore and on occasion I have mild pain not sure what to think cause of the leaky gut causing IBS symptoms.
Is it possible to have mild inflammation? Maybe I should do the diet and eliminate fat and see if the pain goes away. Hi Lukus — hey my thoughts are that if you went on the diet and your symptoms disappear your condition obviously responds to a diet low in fat.
Now that could be liver disease, gallbaldder disease however your pain is in the wrong spot for GB issues , the sphincter of oddi also causes abdominal issues that can be mild or very severe, including acute pancreatitis. Depending upon where the pain is exactly it could also be kidney stones or a spleen issue or IBS.
Lipase elevation of 3x normal is considered enough to diagnose AP. And yes atrophy means your pancreas has shrunk which can happen as we age whether or not one has pancreatitis.
The creon is also an interesting prescription. Have you been diagnosed with EPI? Or do you have an intestinal disorder that has caused malabsorption? I find that life is passing me by as i feel unwell most days and yet can not get a proper diagnosis.
It also sounds like you have more rough road ahead. I am truly sorry you are having to go through your ordeal. I KNOW it sucks. I also do not know what to suggest as a possible solution except what I have already said in another comment.
There are forms of pancreatitis that can present FIRST with chronic pancreatitis type symptoms instead of acute and so likely go undiagnosed for years. Get diagnosed with a concrete diagnosis that actually fits the symptoms and makes sense.
So dr wants to look at my gallbladder function. I never have pain on the right only the left and feel it radiate to my back with nausea. The catch is they want me to eat bacon and eggs the morning of the scan. Am petrified to say the least. Hi Stacey — dang that would scare me too! She experienced no pain. Do you know of whether this is true. I have a case study somewhere about an old man who presented with severe vomiting but no pain and he died. Diagnosis was on autopsy. So yes I have heard of painless acute pancreatitis.
Painless acute pancreatitis is rare and usually ends up fatal because the hallmark clinical symptom pain is not evident and so it rarely gets diagnosed in time.
Painless acute pancreatitis mimicking pancreatic carcinoma. It is tender and feels swollen. Sometimes have 1 bad day 1 good, interspersed with a few weeks of awful.
I have had 2 CTs, an ultrasound and too many blood tests to count! Have had 2 lots of fevers during this time which have lasted about days. The pain appears unrelated to food but hard to tell!
Celiac and autoimmune have all been ruled out- currently testing for Crohns. I was just wondering about the chances of having chronic pancreatitis having never had any pancreatic problems previously? Hi Lu — sorry to hear you are not well. All I can say is that there is definitely inflammation somewhere because your CRP is elevated which clearly indicates inflammation.
Neutrophilia could be indictive of any number of infections, even though slight. There are certain types of pancreatitis that can start out with symptms more like those a the chronic form. Have you done any genetic testing for hereditary or acoholic pancreatitis? You do NOT have to be an alcoholic or even a heavy drinker to get alcoholic pancreatitis if you have the gene varaiant. Sorry I am not more help. The discomfort is dead center in my upper abdomen, and does not radiate to my back.
Undiagnosed, as all GI tests came back normal. SOD sphincter of oddi dysfunction can present with very similar symptoms to acute pancreatitis and does actually cause pancreatitis. It could be neither yet is a harbinger of things to come.
I have abdominal pain radiating to my back especially after food, soft stools, dizziness and have seen a number of doctors. I have had a CT scan, two MRI Scans and an ultrasound endoscopy and they have all come back saying my pancreas looks normal. My bloods are also normal. I was told the ultrasound endoscopy would definitely show if I had a problem with my pancreas. Is it possible to have chronic pancreatitis when all the tests have come normal? I am also worried I have malabsorption issues as my bones have begun to hurt a lot and I am wondering whether undiagnosed pancreatitis has resulted in osteoporosis.
Is there anything you would suggest for malabsorption other than juicing which I am trying to do as much as possible. Hi Jen — The problem is that there are more than one condition that offer those types of symptoms. Your pancreas may or may not be involved.
Endoscopic ultrasound is a very good test. Both of those conditions can cause acute pancreatitis as well. Yet with the tests you have had a gallbladder issue may have already been ruled out. SOD can also be seen not always on those tests. Things sometimes get missed. Gallstones can pass leaving nothing to be seen. Blood enzyme levels have been known to be elusive rare. Thank you Health Guy. Could that be responsible for my symptoms? Bile is made in the liver and stored in the gallbladder. If your liver is toxic the bile probably is as well.
Good liver cleansing herbs are mint, parsley, garlic, chives, shallots, basil, coriander and small amounts of thyme and oregano. IF that is gonna work you should see some results within 30 days. Do you think getting my gallbladder removed would result in a lessening of my symptoms? Thank you so much for your help. I seem to get better advice from you than the consultants I have seen! After a week or so the pain slowly started to go away and turned into a mild, but constant burning sensation under left rib and in upper stomach in general.
If I eat really big meals or junk food it may comes out in a diariha shape. The sympthoms are still there. Again, I understand you are not a doctor but from what I see online for the las months you have more info than most of them! Do you have any advice for me? What do you think? I know it can be frustrating to be ill and not know why. Did the docs check you for celiac disease or IBS? Were you ever in the ER? If so … Did they draw blood and check your lipase and amylase levels?
It may not be pancreatitis. It may be an intestinal or liver problem left lobe. Hi Health Guy thank you for the response. I heard stories about people that had mild symptoms for years and than one day their pancreas was so damaged they needed to remove it completely. If that is the case with me, i want to make a change before its too late.. Never been to the ER because the pain was and still tolerable. They are from the stomach, mostly from the place of the burning pain — under my left rib.
Just for giggles and grins have him test you for celiac disease blood test. Read this whole article from the Cleveland Clinic. By the way — go to the store and buy some Mylanta antacid. Take a dose twice a day for a couple days and see if that burning pain goes away. If it does it could indicate an ulcer, or a problem with your esophagus.
I had esophagus pain left and right side that feels like it is something other than the esophagus that was relieved by Mylanta.
I also had reflux at times. By the way — even though most of your symptoms do NOT indicate pancreatitis as yet they may be signs of things to come. I have dropped my grape seed extract for now because the milligrams I feel were way too high. I need to keep reading and visiting the beatingpancreatitis website because importantly for my state of mind I need hope.
Hope that I can heal too. Hi Stacey Wykes — I was just asking the Lord yesterday about you! I mentioned to Him that I had not heard from you and asked that He made sure you were ok.
You can always try the Now Foods Super Enzymes. It may give you the relief you need. Just ask the doc to start you off with a low dose and see what happens. Such a great quote from the bible and very true. Because of your good work and wonderful effort I think God led me to your website very early in my illness and for that I am so grateful. Anyhow I will see my dr tomorrow check the creon dosage is low and then try them. I feel ok am still following the diet not as good as I know I can so I need to get myself organised.
Need to get the inflammation under control and do my food diary. You can do it! If so, it could be slowing his system down. One of my dogs swallowed a sock whole. He became constipated, eventually did not want to eat and began to lose weight. It took the sock a couple weeks to pass. So you want to keep an eye on your baby. My little toy poodle has a large mass surrounding bladder, urethra and is constipated as a result.
Waiting to hear back on the results of the biopsy. She is on stool softener. I have put her on a vegetable diet, purée. I have no pet insurance and I want to keep her alive by shrinking this tumor. Does anyone have any suggestions!?
Boy, she is quite a trooper. What has the vet said about the tumor? Can it be removed? Maybe the vet is waiting for results, then can prescribe something to help or suggest a path to take. Please keep us posted with her results. Maybe then someone can best offer suggestions. My dog got into some cheese, thus she is constipated.
We have been walking her to see if that would help. She is drinking water ok. What else do I do? You can add some plain no spices canned pumpkin to her food.
It helps with both constipation and diarrhea by adding fiber back into her gut. My dog is constipated and I gave her a few licks of milk and she went a little bit. What should I do?
Both of my dogs are constipated. I changed their food recently because my brother stopped sending me the Good Kind for a about a month and for the last 3 days they havent really had a bowel movement and the pee is not a continuous flow…. He took his temp and everything…. For my 3 year old shih tzu he prescribed doxycycline because he said he had a throat infection and for his joints.
I thought it might be lyme disease because my grass was so high at one point and they were out there all the time. I saw ticks and fleas on both of them. See if your dogs will eat some green beans. That can relieve constipation. Also plain canned pumpkin — not the kind with spices, just plain pumpkin.
Also be sure they have plenty of water. If you are feeding them dry food, add some water to their dry food and let it sit for a few minutes before you feed them. Dry food absorbs liquid during digestion and constipation can be a result of not enough liquid in their digestive tract to make regular stools. It can be a simple imbalance. As for the ticks and fleas… there are a couple options. Short grass also lets the sun bake out some issues.
Works with cats too. She has passed small hard stools yesterday but nothing much at all really! So i have been reading all your helpful tips and will now try olive oil in her breakfast and see if that helps.
I have some pumpkin in the fridge that i shall cook up also in a couple of days if Olive oil doesnt work. This is wonderful information thank you.
You can use the plain pumpkin straight out of the can. No need to cook it. Also green beans can help. One of the main causes of constipation is insufficient water. Is she drinking water? How often and how long do I feed my boy the canned pumpkin or,same question if i choose the olive oil method. He is 3 years old. These are remedies, so you would do them for maybe a day or two after you get the result you want.
