greetings..a few months ago I was hospitalized, diagnosed with damage to the pancreas caused by bacteria/viruses.but I don’t like to drink alcohol.so until now I don’t know the cause.Meanwhile, pain in the upper abdomen sometimes still occurs, until now.the question:
Hi Mr Zayin,
Pancreatitis as it is known is an inflammatory condition of the pancreas due to the activation of enzymes in pancreatic cells, causing damage to the pancreatic tissue itself with symptoms of severe pain in the upper abdomen or heartburn that radiates to the back suddenly, the examination found an increase in the enzyme amylase, lipase is more than 3x the normal value, and on imaging examination (USG or Ctscan) there are signs of pancreatitis. The degree of inflammation can be mild to severe. The cause can be a viral infection (Hepatitis Virus, Mumps, Herpes, Cytomegalovirus), bacteria (Salmonella, Leptospira), fungi, to parasites or worms. Can also be caused by blockage due to gallstones, alcohol consumption, fatty foods.
Infections caused by bacteria or viruses can enter through the food consumed, such as unclean processing, or contact with viruses which then enter the body and spread in the blood circulation. The recommended diet is to avoid alcoholic beverages, stop smoking, avoid fatty foods such as coconut milk, fried foods, offal, skin and so on. Avoid dirty food processing is not clean. Eat nutritious foods that are complete and healthy, such as stir-fried, baked, steamed or soup. When food is fried, it must be in new oil and not used repeatedly. Avoid foods containing MSG or micin and food coloring or flavoring. Eat fibrous foods such as vegetables and fruit for antioxidants and maintain digestive health. Lifestyles that should be avoided such as full eating, late eating patterns, after eating lying down or sleeping. Drink lots of water and avoid soft drinks.
Repeat control is important for evaluation of symptoms and response to treatment. or the presence of other diseases that cause indigestion and abdominal pain.
