Complications of Pancreatitis

Pancreatitis can cause life-threatening complications such as sepsis, renal failure, ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) and shock. It could transform into a chronic pancreatitis too. Other complications include:-

• Bleeding,

• Infection,

• ‘Pseudo-cyst ‘ formation, are some of the complications of pancreatitis. Rarely it may cause breathing difficulty and

• Failure of the lung, kidneys or heart.

• Dehydration and shock are possible and even death is known to occur.

• If the toxins spread all over the body, the person may even suffer from severe septic shock.

• It may progress into a chronic stage when repeated attacks of pain and vomiting occur from time to time. This can be very disabling and cause a lot of discomfort to the patient.

ERCP is basically an Endoscopy performed on you when it is suspected by a doctor that you have Pancreatitis. Basically they can either just numb your throat, or knock you out, and put a tube down your throat with a little camera to examine your pancreas and the structures around it. I had one done not too long ago. Hope this helps.

I read pancreatitis is likely caused because of A high OXIDATIVE STRESS level & a low supply of antioxidants like beta- carotene,vitamin E,vitamin C,organic selenium & amino acid Methionine.
