After untold hours of agony, 7 ER visits, a total of 14 doctors I was, In 1979, diagnosed with acute and chronic pancreatitis.
I am not a doctor. I am not a Ph.D. I didn't even attend college. Read everything on this page. If you need to leave, bookmark the page. The reason you'll want to do that is because I seriously doubt you will find this kind of in-depth, from-the-horses-mouth kind of information about living with pancreatitis anywhere else on the net unless it is on one of my sites.
Why Listen to Me?
Just because I am living with pancreatitis doesn't mean you should listen to me. I may have been living with pancreatitis for over 30 years, but that simply means I could be a lucky idiot; length of time in the saddle certainly doesn't mean I am a skilled rider does it? So, what is the real reason you might be interested in listening to me?
I Am Pain-Free-—and Symptom-Free
This is the most important reason. I was driven to uncover the formula, the secret to healing. If you are looking for information on how to beat pancreatitis and live pain-free I will share what I have learned with you.
The information you'll read on this page is not from someone who has simply read about the condition in order to gather the information necessary to write an article. This information is from someone who was diagnosed with pancreatitis, lived with the condition for a long time, and has found ways to adapt, improvise, and overcome.
That being said, please consult a licensed healthcare professional before beginning any dietary changes or treatment plans. But take their advice, as well as mine, with a grain of salt, and make sure you are well-informed before choosing any course of action.
Don't Take it Lightly
Sure the overall death rate from acute pancreatitis may average at less than 10 percent, but if you are one of the unlucky 10 percent, that would certainly suck, wouldn't it? Complications such as necrosis, infection, hemorrhage, and organ failure can bring that percentage up to 50 percent. The damage caused by acute pancreatitis often leads to chronic pancreatitis, causing long-term suffering.
If you have been diagnosed with acute and/or chronic pancreatitis, want to prevent more attacks and resulting damage, and lessen your pain and other symptoms without narcotics—and possibly heal your pancreas as well—this may be the article you've searched high and low for.
