In brief: Pancreas stressors

Most common pancreatic toxins are alcohol & gallstones.
Other stressors for pancreas include tobacco, weight gain (causing high blood sugars & high cholesterol/triglycerides), high triglycerides (familial), viruses, and medications ( certain antibiotics, BP meds, steroids & narcotics).
