I was just told I have pancreatitis. What should I do now?

Pancreatitis. If you have nausea or vomiting, you may need IV hydration. Avoid any alcohol and maintain a low animal protein diet as this stimulated the pancreas. Most importantly, the cause of the pancreatitis needs to be identified such as alcohol, gallstones, or medications. Your doctor will schedule the appropriate imaging studies and blood work.
