Pancreatitis

Most of people in the life time ever fell pain in stomach area even sometimes severe pain and need doctor to giving treatment for it. Some doctor may be wil give you treatment or medication related with your stomach problem. Stomach pain is not merely problem with stomach itself. Many dissease can cause pain in stomach area, some of them are Heart disease (miocardiac infarct), Appendicittis chronic, pancreatitis and some abdominal problem.

I have experience with my son, he has a long time before complaint pain in stomach area then doctor examined and suppose to do ultrasound, after coming result then doctor diagnosed that my son was getting gastritis. After taking gastric medication my son will be felling well, but after 3 month later my son complained again that he fell painfull in stomach area again following fever, nausea. His temperatue was increase till 38,8 o Celcius. I was getting worry about that.
Then my wife bring my son to see surgery doctor for examine anything worst with my son, because we are worry if my son develop appendicitis acute. Surgery doctor suppose to my wife to do ultrasound and the result is my son was diagnosted pancreatitis and doctor was gave some medication to my son till my son felling well.

yeah, this is the true condition is pain in stomach is not only error with the stomach itself, so you have to take care and more responsive about that. Pancreatitis is pancreas is infected so make pancreas getting infection. Symptom and sign that your pancreas is infected are a following below:
  • swollen and tender abdomen
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • fever more than 38 o Celcius
  • rapid pulse
Pancreatitis in Children

Actually Chronic pancreatitis is rare in children. Trauma to the pancreas and hereditary pancreatitis are two known causes of childhood pancreatitis. Children with cystic fibrosis, a progressive, disabling, and incurable lung disease, may also have pancreatitis. But more often the cause is not known.

Diagnosis

To make diagnosis may be difficult, but new techniques can help. Pancreatic function tests help a doctor decide whether the pancreas is still making enough digestive enzymes. Using ultrasonic imaging, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and CAT scans, a doctor can see problems indicating chronic pancreatitis. Such problems include calcification of the pancreas, in which tissue hardens from deposits of insoluble calcium salts. In more advanced stages of the disease, when diabetes and malabsorption occur, a doctor can use a number of blood, urine, and stool tests to help diagnose chronic pancreatitis and to monitor its progression.

Treatment

Relieving pain is the first step in treating chronic pancreatitis and may be doctor will give pancreatic enzyme to help pancreas function. The next step is to plan a diet that is high in carbohydrates and low in fat.

It is sad when young people or children have pancreas problems such as acute or chronic pancreatitis. Idiopathic pancreatitis may actually be associated with autoimmune pancreatis due to some underlying AID such as Celiac Disease. I was diagnosed in 1979 with pancreatitis and have learned how to overcome the condition. What I do may or may not help others but I share what I do here: Overcoming Pancreatitis
