What is Pancreatitis?

Acute pancreatitis is the inflammation or swelling of pancreas. Pancreas is the long, flat gland situated behind the stomach in the upper abdomen. 

The main function of Pancreas is production of insulin and other important enzymes and hormones that helps to break down foods.

Signs and symptoms of Pancreatitis:

  • Severe, dull pain in the abdomen.
  • Pain in the back or below the left shoulder blade.
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Swelling in the abdomen.

Causes & risk factors of acute pancreatitis:

  • Stone-like materials found in the gall bladder can trigger acute pancreatitis.
  • Consumption of alcohol cause inflammation of pancreas.
  • Injury to the pancreas
  • Viral infection like mumps or measles.
  • Obesity
  • Smoking

Diagnosis of Pancreatitis:

Complete Blood Count

Complete Blood Count is done to check for high level of 2 chemicals, lipase and amylase.

CT scan

CT scan is done to see a 3-D image of pancreas.

 

MRI scan

In MRI scan, magnetic fields and radio waves are used to produce a detailed image of the inside of the body.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound scan, an image of part of the inside of the body is created with the help of high-frequency sound waves.

Treatment of Acute Pancreatitis:

Increased fluids intake

Due to acute pancreatitis the body becomes dehydrated so fluids are given intravenously (I.V. fluid).

Nutritional support

Some patients are advised not to eat as digestion of solid food can cause too much strain on the pancreas. So a feeding tube can be used to provide the body with required nutrients.

Medications

Painkillers are recommended in case of severe abdominal pain.

Treatment of the underlying cause.
