Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the tissues of the pancreas. Most often it occurs against the background of cholelithiasis or with alcoholism. In a healthy state, the pancreas produces digestive enzymes that are released into the intestines. With inflammation, they are activated in the gland itself and destroy it.
The main symptom of pancreatitis is severe aching pain in the abdomen, often radiating to the back. Nausea and vomiting, sweating, fever, impaired consciousness may appear. If you have these warning signs, you should see your doctor.
Treatment tactics depend on the severity and stage of the disease. In severe cases, the patient is hospitalized.

In some cases, parenteral nutrition is used: the introduction of nutrients through a vein. If pancreatitis is complicated by an infection, antibiotics are essential.
