Know Everything About Pancreatitis!!

What is Pancreas? 

The pancreas is an organ placed behind the stomach in abdomen. It produces: digestive juices (produce by exocrine pancreas, it help in digestion of food) as well as digestive hormones i.e. insulin and glucagon (produce by endocrine pancreas) which help in regulation of the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood. 

What is pancreatitis? 

Pancreatitis is abnormal swelling and inflammation of the pancreas. Once the gland becomes inflamed, the condition can progress to swelling of the gland and surrounding blood vessels, bleeding, infection, and damage to the gland. Normally, digestive enzymes secreted by the pancreas do not become active until they reach the small intestine. But when the pancreas is inflamed, digestive juices become trapped and start "digesting" the pancreas itself. If this damage persists, the gland may not be able to carry out normal functions. 

What Are the Types of Pancreatitis? 

Pancreatitis may be acute (new, short-term) or chronic (ongoing, long-term). Either type can be very severe, even life-threatening. Either type can have serious complications. 

  1. Acute pancreatitis usually begins soon after the damage to the pancreas begins. Attacks are mostly very mild, but about 20% of them are very severe. The onset of acute pancreatitis is often very sudden. The inflammation usually clears up within several days after treatment begins. An attack lasts for a short time and usually resolves completely as the pancreas returns to its normal state. Some people have only one attack, whereas other people have more than one attack, but the pancreas always returns to its normal state unless necrotizing pancreatitis develops and becomes life-threatening. 
  2. Chronic pancreatitis begins as acute pancreatitis. If the pancreas becomes scarred during the attack of acute pancreatitis, it cannot return to its normal state. The damage to the gland continues, worsening over time. Pancreatitis can come and go quickly, or it can be a chronic problem. Treatment will depend on whether your pancreatitis is acute or chronic. 

What are the causes of pancreatitis? 
Alcohol abuse and gallstones are the two main causes of pancreatitis, accounting for 80% to 90% of all individuals diagnosed with pancreatitis. 

  1. Gallstones form from a buildup of material within the gallbladder, another organ in the abdomen (please see previous illustration). A gallstone can block the pancreatic duct, trapping digestive juices inside the pancreas. Pancreatitis due to gallstones tends to occur most often in women older than 50 years of age. 
  2. Pancreatitis from alcohol use usually occurs in individuals who have been long-term alcohol drinkers for at least five to seven years. Most cases of chronic pancreatitis are due to alcohol abuse. Pancreatitis is often already chronic by the first time the person seeks medical attention (usually for severe pain).
  3. The remaining 10% to 20% of cases of pancreatitis have various causes, including the following:
    1. medications, 
    2. exposure to certain chemicals, 
    3. injury (trauma), as might happen in a car accident or bad fall leading to abdominal trauma, 
    4. hereditary disease, 
    5. surgery and certain medical procedures, 
    6. infections such as mumps (not common), 
    7. abnormalities of the pancreas or intestine, or 
    8. high fat levels in the blood. 
  4. In about 15% of cases of acute pancreatitis and 40% of cases of chronic pancreatitis, the cause is never known. 

What are the risk factors for pancreatitis? 

The major risk factors for pancreatitis are excessive alcohol intake and gallstones. Although the definition for excessive alcohol intake can vary from person-to-person, most health-care professionals suggest that moderate consumption is no more than two alcoholic drinks a day for men and one a day for women and the elderly. However, people with pancreatitis secondary to alcohol intake are usually advised to avoid all alcohol intake. Other risk factors include: 

  • a family history of pancreatitis, 
  • high levels of fat (triglycerides) in the blood, 
  • cigarette smoking
  • certain inherited disorders such as cystic fibrosis, and 
  • taking certain medicines (for example estrogen therapy, diuretics, and tetracycline). 

What Are the Symptoms of Pancreatitis? 

Most people who have acute or chronic pancreatitis experience upper abdominal pain as their primary symptom. Some of those who have chronic pancreatitis may show inflammation on imaging scans, but otherwise may show no symptoms. Symptoms of pancreatitis may include: 

  • upper abdominal pain: pain that wraps around the upper body and involves the back in a band-like pattern 
    • Pain associated with pancreatitis may last from a few minutes to several hours at a time. 

In severe cases, discomfort from chronic pancreatitis could become constant. Your pain is likely to increase after you eat or when you’re lying down. Try sitting up or leaning forward to make yourself more comfortable. 

Severe acute pancreatitis is a medical emergency. Severe acute pancreatitis may cause dehydration and low blood pressure. The heart, lungs, or kidneys can fail. If bleeding occurs in the pancreas, shock and even death may follow. People who have chronic pancreatitis may also experience steatorrhea, or fatty stools that give off a foul odor. Steatorrhea can be a sign of malabsorption. This means you’re not getting all of your essential nutrients because your pancreas doesn’t secrete enough digestive enzymes to break down your food. 

How pancreatitis is diagnosed? 

Your doctor will likely use a combination of blood tests and imaging scans to make a diagnosis. If you have acute pancreatitis, blood tests may show a rise in your level of pancreatic enzymes. During acute pancreatitis, the blood contains at least three times the normal amount of amylase and lipase, digestive enzymes formed in the pancreas. Changes may also occur in other body chemicals such as glucose, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, and bicarbonate. After the person's condition improves, the levels usually return to normal. Ultrasound, MRI/MRCP, and CT scans can reveal the size of your pancreas and whether you have a blockage of the bile ducts. 

How to treat pancreatitis? 

Treatment for acute or chronic pancreatitis often involves hospitalization. In acute pancreatitis, the choice of treatment is based on the severity of the attack. If no complications are present, care usually focuses on relieving symptoms and supporting body functions so that the pancreas can recover. Treatment for acute pancreatitis includes intravenous (IV) fluids, and medications for pain, nausea and vomiting.

  • The pancreas is key to your digestive process and needs to rest to heal. No food or liquid should be taken by mouth for a few days. This is called bowel rest. By refraining from food or liquid intake, the intestinal tract and pancreas are given a chance to start healing.
  • For this reason, you may receive fluids and nutrition intravenously or through a tube that goes from your nose directly into your jejunum (part of small intestine), which is called a nasojejunal feeding tube. Restarting an oral diet depends on your condition. Some people feel better after a couple of days. Others need a week or two to heal sufficiently. 
  • If needed, medications for pain and nausea are prescribed. 
  • Those people who are having trouble breathing are given oxygen. 
  • Antibiotics are given if the health-care professional suspects an infection may be present. 
  • Some people may need a nasogastric (NG) tube. The thin, flexible plastic tube is inserted through the nose and down into the stomach to suck out the stomach juices. This suction of the stomach juices rests the intestine further, helping the pancreas recover. 
  • If the attack lasts longer than a few days, nutritional supplements are administered through an IV line. 
  • Surgery is sometimes needed to treat complications 
    • If your doctor diagnoses gallstones or other blockages of the bile ducts, you may need surgery to correct these problems later on. 

What are the complications of pancreatitis? 

Some patients may develop complications. These complications are rare, but they’re more common in people with chronic pancreatitis: 

Can pancreatitis be prevented? 

The following recommendations may help to prevent further attacks or to keep them mild: 

  • Completely eliminate alcohol because it is the only way to reduce the chance of further attacks in cases of pancreatitis caused by alcohol use, to prevent the pancreatitis from worsening, and to prevent the development of complications that can be very serious or even fatal. 
  • Eat small frequent meals. If in the process of having an attack, avoid solid foods for several days to give the pancreas a chance to recover. 
  • Eat a balanced diet high in carbohydrates and low in fats because may help individuals decrease the risk for pancreatitis since it is likely these actions will decrease the risk of gallstones, a major risk factor for pancreatitis. 
  • If pancreatitis is due to chemical exposure or medications, the source of the exposure will need to be found and stopped, and the medication will need to be discontinued. 
  • Don't smoke 
  • Maintain a healthy weight 
  • Exercise regularly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gastroenterologist.

I am upset due to over sweat. Clothes will be wet when I move from an air conditioned room. More over summer plays a lead role. Bad odour is another problem. How can we reduce sweat.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Heavy sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) is a very real and embarrassing problem, but there are some effective ways to treat it. What Is Hyperhidrosis? Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder which produces a lot of unhappiness. An estimated 2-3% of people suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Underarm problems tend to start in late adolescence, while palm and sole sweating often begins earlier, around the age 13 (on the average). Untreated, these problems may continue throughout life. Sweating is embarrassing, it stains clothes, ruins personal contact, and complicates business and social interactions. Severe cases can have serious practical consequences as well, making it hard for people who suffer from it to hold a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands. Causes OF Hyperhidrosis:- Although neurologic, endocrine, infectious, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause hyperhidrosis, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all their waking hours, regardless of their mood or the weather. Antiperspirants This may be the first treatment that a dermatologist recommends. It is affordable. When applied as directed, an antiperspirant can be effective. Your dermatologist may recommend a regular or clinical-strength antiperspirant. Some patients need a stronger antiperspirant and receive a prescription for one. Iontophoresis (the no-sweat machine) If excessive sweating affects your hands, feet, or both areas, this may be an option. You will use this treatment at home. It requires you to immerse your hands or feet in a shallow pan of tap water. As you do this, a medical device sends a low-voltage current through the water. Many people obtain relief. Some people dislike that this treatment can be time-consuming. Uses: Hands and feet It works by the electric current shuts down the treated sweat glands temporarily. Side effects: Some people develop: • Dry skin • Irritated skin • Discomfort during treatment Prescription medicine Some patients receive a prescription for a medicine that temporarily prevents them from sweating. These medicines work throughout the body. However we cannot prescribe in open question answer session as a rule but you can ask in consultation. These medicines prevent the sweat glands from working. Athletes, people who work in a hot place, and anyone who lives in a warm climate should use extreme caution when using this treatment. The body may not be able to cool itself. Uses: These medicines can effectively treat sweating that involves entire body. This medicine also can be an effective treatment for post-menopausal women who sweat excessively only from their head. Side effects: The medicines that prevent the sweat glands from working can cause: • Dry mouth • Dry eyes • Blurry vision • Heart palpations (abnormal heartbeat) Surgery If other treatments fail to bring relief, surgery may be considered. Surgery is permanent and carries risks. The following surgeries can stop excessive sweating: • Surgically remove sweat glands • Sympathectomy A dermatologist can surgically remove sweat glands from the underarms. This surgery can be performed in a dermatologist’s office. Only the area to be treated is numbed, so the patient remains awake during the surgery. A dermatologist may use one or more of the following surgical techniques to remove sweat glands from the underarms: • Excision (cut out sweat glands) • Liposuction (remove with suction) • Curettage (scrape out) • Laser surgery (vaporize) Sympathectomy is another surgery used to treat hyperhidrosis. This is major surgery, which a surgeon performs in an operating room. During sympathectomy, the surgeon tries to stop the nerve signals that your body sends to the sweat glands. To do this, the surgeon will cut or destroy certain nerves. To find these nerves, the surgeon inserts a mini surgical camera into the patient’s chest just beneath the underarm. The patient’s lung must be temporarily collapsed so that the surgeon can cut or destroy nerves. Uses: • Surgical removal of sweat glands is used to treat the underarms • Sympathectomy is mainly used to treat the palms

The penis grows through puberty up until around 20-years-old. The size you have is mainly down to the genes you inherited from parents and grandparents. The penis extends temporarily during erection and then returns to it's flaccid state. Overall sex stamina improves by healthy lifestyle. Regular sleep, exercise and meal are the foremost things. In diet cow milk, cow butter and garlic are proven sexual tonic. Regular healthy diet containing carbohydrate, protein and minerals-vitamins is necessary. Specific diet depends on culture and geographic situation. Exercise to control your weight and make you fit. Sleep to relax your mind. All above measures help you to relive mental stress also which indirectly help to perform better. Another aspect is emotional attachment and love between partners in overall life apart from the sex. If it is good no need of any tonic, natural stamina would suffice. Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further, regards,
