Pancreatitis means inflammation of pancreas. Pancreas is the organ which produces enzymes which helps in digestion of food and it secretes insulin and anti insulin hormone. If there is pancreatitis patient will have severe abdominal pain nausea vomiting, intolerance to fatty food, as it helps in digestion of fat. In long run patient will develop diabetes. Gallstones n pancreatic stones are are formed in the ducts through which bile and pancreatic enzymes pass through n opens in the initial part of the small intestine called jejunum where food which has been partially digested by enzymes in stomach needs to be alkalized as it's too acidic and prepared to be digested and absorbed. Some time stones in these passages can cause obstruction alone to the flow of bile then jaundice will develop. If stone is in distal part where pancreatic duct joins the bile duct that just before the opening in to intestine in that case flow of bile and pancreatic secretion will be blocked and along with jaundice, pancreatitis will develop, which is very severe and dangerous situation. People those who take too spicy and oily food, and drink excessive alcohol stand chances to develop pancreatitis and gallstones. Obesity too is a risk factor to develop pancreatitis.
