Default Pancreas problems

I have had pancreatitis 4 times in the last 6 months. Has anyone else had problems like this?

What are your numbers like? What kind of foods do you eat? Are you a drinker (alcohol)? If you are suffering from pancreatitis that many time in such a short time frame, that is quite concerning.

Give some info on yourself please.

No, I have not had problems.

All of naynay's questions. Plus, what does your doctor say is happening?

I watch my diet and my numbers have been good overall, A1C around 7...I had this in December and they found my gallbladder was only at 10% so it was removed. I dont drink any alcohol. My doctor is sending me to a specialist in March. Im always concerned about cancer but CT scans have not shown anything.

Other, more knowledgeable people should show up soon. I am glad you are working with your doctor!

Sheesh, don't you just hate it when you have to wait for an appointment with a specialist? Sometimes it seems like it takes forever. This doc should be able to give you the answers you need. Best of luck, and keep us posted.

Hmmmm, that is a puzzler then. Pancreatitis can be caused by many things, so it may not be your diabetes, per say. Something else may be happening. I hope you get answers soon. I know pancreatitis is quite painful (my uncle has had a few attacks), so good luck and hope the time goes fast to see the doc.

What, exactly, do you eat in a typical week? High levels of protein and existing damage to your liver (fatty liver) can cause pancreatitis?

I do have a fatty liver, and my meals are mainly a diabetic diet. Im feeling better now that the pain has subsided. My doctor has changed my diagnosis to "chronic pancreatitis" rather than "acute". Im still waiting to hear from the specialist to set up an appointment.
