The most vulnerable of all digestive organs is the pancreas. In the tissues of the pancreas there is no enzyme that can break down harmful substances and alcohol, as, for example, in the liver. You can earn pancreatitis even after one “cheerful” feast with booze and heavy snacks.
Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas due to malnutrition and alcohol consumption.
The pancreas does not perceive very well:
- very greasy
- foods that are high in protein
- products with flavorings, preservatives,
- bone broth,
- ice cream,
- oil creams,
- all kinds of fast food
A number of drugs can also act as provocateurs of pancreatitis: antipyretics, sulfanilamide, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, diuretics, analgesics, hormonal contraceptives.
The pancreas loves a full, rational and regular diet. Include stews in your diet daily vegetables – carrots, cabbage, zucchini, etc. It is better to use yesterday’s yeast-free bread. The use of a sufficient amount of mineral water with an alkaline reaction favorably affects the work of the pancreas.
How to determine that the pancreas “wakes up”?
If you have:
- pain, aggravated “in the pit of the stomach” after eating, often spreading to the right and left hypochondrium, “encircling” or giving to back
- false poisoning – nausea, acid vomiting, diarrhea
- on palpation in the area just above the navel, pain occurs.
But still, it is very problematic to independently determine whether the cause of these manifestations is a malfunction of the pancreas, since the same symptoms are observed in many other diseases of the digestive tract.
Only a doctor, based on tests, will be able to make a correct diagnosis and prescribe a comprehensive treatment. It is often sufficient to comply therapeutic diet and taking enzyme replacement drugs: Mezim, Pancreatin, Creon, etc.
If the pancreas gives a distress signal, then do not hesitate. Immediately consult a doctor so that the process does not become chronic. Without treatment, you can soon earn obesity and diabetes.
