ANY pancreatitis information online that suggests a pancreatitis patient drink red wine because it is full of antioxidants or it’s ok to eat steak (red meat), pork, lamb, other high fat content foods, use oil in cooking (or prep) is extremely dangerous pancreatitis information.
I have scoured the Internet looking for new research (I already know what works I’m just keeping up on new stuff) in regards to pancreatitis and I am amazed at all the outright dangerous info I find especially in regards to a pancreatitis diet.
Alcohol and fat are the two biggest and most dangerous triggers for acute pancreatitis in those who have chronic pancreatitis.
When seeking quality pancreatitis information online find someone who has learned how to heal their pancreas. IF they are NOT healed or have never had pancreatitis (this includes doctors when it comes to food and drink) be very, very cautious.
I have pancreatitis.
I have had pancreatitis for over 30 years. I was first diagnosed in 1979 and I am one of the few who have probably survived this long and it wasn’t by drinking alcohol or eating my favorite high fat content foods. If you or anyone else wants to really learn how to beat pancreatitis and avoid more acute pancreatitis attacks, chronic pancreatitis pain, nausea and other symptoms then PAY ATTENTION to what I do because …
I am pain and symptom free and have been for YEARS.
I’ll share EVERYTHING, my complete library of pancreatitis information, that I have learned by experience and/or research, for absolutely free. This means you do NOT have to purchase a pancreatitis book authored by someone who has never had pancreatitis, isn’t healed or worse simply wanted to write a book about pancreatitis because their father died from pancreatitis. Not be be rude or cold but IF they new what I know their father may still be alive!
There are blogs and static sites (regular web pages) authored by pancreatitis patients that are still sick. Following advice from a sick pancreatitis patient is like following advice on how to lose weight from the fat lady down the block or listening to your uncle who has filed bankruptcy 3 times regarding how to invest your money. It is NOT smart and can be dangerous! Pancreatitis kills people. The mortality rate for acute pancreatitis is as high as 30% in severe cases with infected necrosis.
Chronic pancreatitis survival depends on many factors however the chances are good that if you take the bull by the horns and learn how to heal your pancreas that you may die from something else altogether such as heart disease or a reckless bus driver.
There are associated complications with chronic pancreatitis (pancreatic cancer, acute pancreatitis, diabetes) from which your demise could surely come so it might be wise to try to avoid those complications by adopting a whole new way of viewing food, drink and lifestyle.
I have found pancreatitis information online, authored by “white coats” doctors and certified nutritionists, that have some seriously dangerous information because they say things like alcohol or steak are ok to eat or can be used in moderation or some other stupid hogwash that may put you in serious jeopardy.
Online support groups (any support group) are full of unhealed sick people leading sick people. Why would anyone want to follow the advice of someone who can’t heal themselves? IF you had a doctor who was still sick with pancreatitis, couldn’t even figure out how heal themselves and was HOPING to be approved for a TP/AIT procedure (I’ve seen them in support groups) would you want that doctor trying to heal you? Online support groups are full of piss-poor, even dangerous pancreatitis information.
BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL about who you follow online in regards to any pancreatitis information. Most people, including doctors and nutritionists, don’t know shit about what is good in regards to a pancreatitis diet, what you should or should not eat, what eliminates inflammation or how to treat the disease appropriately in non-emergency situations. I am not saying to avoid the hospital when you are having or suspect you are having acute pancreatitis. However …
IF you pay attention to what I do in regards to anti-inflammatories for pain resolution, MY pancreatitis diet and the supplements I use daily you will most likely avoid another episode of acute pancreatitis. I have had ONE episode of acute pancreatitis in 30 years and it was a nasty one but …
It was my own fault for not paying attention, for not reading a label more thoroughly and as a result ingesting a potent trigger which is pork.
Again, be extremely careful who you follow or pay attention to in regards to what you should consume (food or drink) when it comes to pancreatitis information because there is a lot of extremely dangerous pancreatitis information out there.
