Introduction to Pancreas Wellness

The pancreas regulates the sugar levels in the body. It plays a vital role in the digestion of food, which makes pancreatic wellness a vital topic. It is important to choose the right type of food to prevent your pancreas from disorders and diseases likely to affect its functioning. 

It can be difficult to evaluate pancreatic diseases as the pancreas is not easily accessible. A swollen pancreas leads to pancreatitis which can be genetic. If there is a blocked bile duct or gallstones, it may lead to pancreatitis. Pancreatitis could also be hereditary, and chronic. Other complications include pancreatic cancer, EPI, Cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and malfunction of the pancreas.

Causes of Pancreatic Disease 

Pancreatic problems usually occur mainly due to the following causes:

  • Excessive intake of alcohol
  • Gallstones
  • Abdominal surgery
  • High levels of triglyceride in the blood
  • High calcium levels are possibly caused by hyperparathyroidism
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Obesity
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Trauma
  • Infections & certain types of medications
