Abdominal organ. It is digestive organ: it secretes enzymes into the small bowel which break down food and help its absorption. It is also an endocrine organ: it produces hormones involved in sugar control and control of digestion. Insulin is one of these hormones. Diabetics either lack Insulin (type 1 diabetes) or have inadequate ...Read more
Treat complications.: This depends on how bad the trauma is and what complications it develops. One of the most severe can be a pseudocyst a collection of fluid in the organ tissue of the pancreas or in the lesser sac of the abdomen. This is rich in pancreatic enzymes, blood, and necrotic tissue. If large, it may need drainage. It can have complications, like rupture, that may need more extensive management.See 1 more doctor answer
Find the cause: Many conditions, in addition to aging (which normally is accompanied by mild cortical atrophy) can lead to this. This includes neurodegenerative conditions, nutritional deficiency, alcoholism, chronic oxygen deficiency, remote effect of cancer, genetic predisposition. See a neurologist.See 1 more doctor answer
Atrophy testis: Unfortunately this cannot be reversed. The affected testis will be atrophic and small when compared to the normal side.
I have never been a drinker, but the pancreas shows atrophy, and the liver slight enlargement. How come?
Blood tests: You are worried about size here... Have not heard anything else and no symptoms reported. What matters is your blood work. Check with your pcp.

Can an atrophic pancreas be reversed and if so how? What is an atrophic pancreas? Is it serious? I've had acute pancreatitis a quite a few times.
Unfortunately no: I would eliminate from your life whatever originally caused your pancreatitis and limit other things that could make it worse. Certain medicines, high fat diets and alcohol are things you can do something about. Genetic causes of pancreatitis are beyond your control but limiting the above will help prevent attacks.
Mostly no: Most forms of optic atrophy cannot be treated. If associated with multiple sclerosis, steroid infusions can help. If caused by thyroid nerve compression, then treatment of the orbital compression can reverse the atrophy. Sometimes it occurs in associated with long standing elevation of spinal fluid pressure and will improve if the pressure is relieved. A neuro-ophthalmologist can advise you.
Cerebral atrophy: Cerebra; atropy is most commonly related to ageing, can occur after head trauma and some rare neurological disorders. While much research is being so nothing for reversing the illness or loss of brain.
Not really: Optic atrophy is a condition in which the main nerve from the eye to the brain, loses its ability to transmit visual information to the brain. When the ophthalmologist looks at the nerve it will look pale white. When a nerve gets to the state, there is no treatment known as the nerve is essentially functionless.
Vaginal estrogen: My favorite product is vagifem vaginal tablets. They dissolve in the vagina and are not as messy as vaginal creams. Vagifem causes almost no absorption of estrogen into the blood, so it is very safe. Atrophy takes time to improve, however. It will be a few weeks before you start noticing improvement.See 2 more doctor answers
Neuritis: Neuritis is an inflammation of the nerves. If the nerves are motor type that convey impulses to muscles then weakness and atrophy can occur if the neuritis is prolonged. There are a myriad of causes and a variety of nerve types that can become inflamed. See a neurologist to determine the cause of the neuritis and to develop a treatment plan.
Atrophy usually refers to the skin-as you get older or if you have had alot of sun in the past-the dermis (that is the layer below the top layer which is called the epidermis) gets thinner and the skin looks more wrinked. Muscles and fat can also get thinner -this is another form of atrophy. Even the top layer gets thinner ...Read more
