This is because the beta cells that make Insulin are located in the pancreas, and are injured by pancreatitis. Loss of sufficient beta cells causes type 1 diabetes.

Hello Dr. I have got a case of acute on chronic calcific pancreatitis.. is ercp with eswl only treatment option available or any medicines ??

No meds: There are no medications that will help with the stones. Surgical treatment by a surgeon with experience and interest in chronic pancreatitis has the best chance at longer lasting pain relief, but is obviously more invasive than ERCP with ESWL. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Stroke history?: Hi. I assume you've not had a stroke or TIA; please clarify if you have. That's what you want to prevent. Regardless of your LDL and HDL, you should be on a high dose statin. Regardless of your BP, you should be on an ACE inhibitor. You should be on some anti-platelet agent (e.g., clopidogrel). You should absolutely NOT smoke (I trust you've quit!). Good luck! ...Read more
