Does too much caffeine in the diet daily cause pancreatitis?

Does too much caffeine in the diet daily cause pancreatitis?

Best to avoid: Pancreatitis is an inflammation of a gland near your stomach that produces enzymes. The most common triggers are from stoppage of gallbladder, alcohol intake or medications. Many times we cannot determine the trigger. While I have not seen an initial bout i linked to caffeine, its use may further inflame the pancreas or cause you to loose fluids you need to heal. Would be best to avoid. ...Read more

I have pancreatitis and in great pain. clear liquid diet for three days. No relief. Doc says lipase is normal. Why do I hurt?

Nerve damage: After pancreatitis, you can end up with a permanent pain syndrome due to damage to the nerve plexus ("solar plexus") near the pancreas, long after the pancreatitis itself heals. It's often brutal and I hope that it can be addressed. There's a new procedure to destroy the pain fibers here using an instrument passed through the stomach. Very high triglycerides can cause pancreatitis -- is this you? ...Read more

Albumin level 1.5due to poor diet..CKD patient recovered from pancreatitis recently.please suggest something to increase albumin?

Carefully eat Protei: Ur low albumin is partially due, it seems, to the kidneys dumping it from the blood stream. Albumin is an important "oncotic" agent that keeps fluid in the vessels, preventing water from leaking out & causing swelling. Albumin comes from protein in ur diet. Not all protein is good, tho, 4 ur kidneys; talk to ur nephrologist about which foods 2 eat 2 increase protein intake. Good luck & gd health! ...Read more

Water retention from pancreatitis not likely unless lots of damaged pancreas tissue. Pancreatitis typically from ↑ triglycerides & LFHC foods http://goo.gl/H7mItd; LCHF is healthy. ...Read more

Treat the cause: In the short term, the treatment is to "rest" the organ by inserting a feeding tube into the gut below the level at which pancreas enters.
