Effect Of Metabolic Disorders On Pancreatitis?
evening, I want to ask. whether disorders of fat metabolism can cause pancreatitis, or pancreatitis can cause disorders of fat metabolism, or even have nothing to do. thank you, please explain
pancreatitis is an inflammation that occurs in the pancreas. The pancreas is an organ that is important in the body's metabolism. Pancreatitis can be caused due to alcohol, stones, or due to high triglyceride levels (hypertriglyceridemia).
hypertrglycerides can cause acute pancreatitis. This happens because at high triglyceride levels, the chylomicron levels in the body will also increase. Chylomicrons are molecules with high density and large enough molecules to cause blockage / obstruction in the capillaries or blood vessels of the pancreas. This blockage can cause acute pancreatitis.
Therefore, in conditions of high triglyceride levels, a doctor must prescribe medication using a triglyceride-lowering level.
here is an article you can read about acute pancreatitis
hopefully useful, thank you
