Identifying the Symptoms of a Pancreatic Disorder

The pancreas is a vital organ that produces enzymes for digestion and insulin to regulate blood sugar, but it can be susceptible to dysfunctions that disrupt these essential bodily functions. When the pancreas becomes inflamed, digestive enzymes attack the very tissue that produces the enzymes, which can cause damage and bleeding. The pancreas may eventually stop producing the enzymes necessary for your body to digest and absorb nutrients. Factors that can commonly cause pancreatic disorders include gallstone blockages, chronic alcohol consumption, and autoimmune responses, leading to symptoms like severe abdominal pain, sudden weight loss, persistent diarrhea, and jaundiced skin.

At RMG, we have the state-of-the-art technology and patient-centric strategies to address the full spectrum of symptoms and complications caused by pancreatic disorders.

Recognize the Signals – When to Seek Medical Intervention

It’s important to heed your body’s warnings. Prolonged or persistent pain in the belly or abdomen, unexplained weight loss, or concerning changes in bowel habits could signal a problem with the pancreas, meriting a medical assessment from a GI specialist. Other factors can increase your risk for developing a pancreatic disorder, including smoking, obesity, and a family history of pancreatic disease.

Untreated pancreatic disorders can accelerate and cause more life-threatening complications, prompting immediate medical attention to treat symptoms and mitigate the condition. When left unchecked, pancreatic disorders like acute pancreatitis and cystic fibrosis can lead to kidney failure, diabetes, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI), and pancreatic cancer. Don’t let risk factors dictate your health. If you’re experiencing the symptoms of a pancreas disorder, early medical intervention will help you manage your condition and find relief from your discomfort.

Comprehensive Diagnostics & Treatment Options

Diagnosing pancreatic disorders involves a myriad of medical analysis techniques, such as blood and stool testing, CT scans, MRIs, and endoscopic ultrasounds – minimally invasive procedures that offer a closer look at your pancreatic health. As our patient, you’ll receive targeted, personalized treatments spanning pain medications, nutritional support, IV therapies, and lifestyle management services from certified physicians and dietitians.

Procedures like gallbladder surgery and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) can be used to remove gallstones and clear blockages in bile ducts. For those struggling with alcohol-induced disorders, we offer supportive treatment for alcohol dependence. Our mission is to manage more than just your symptoms. Our healthcare providers at RMG are devoted to improving your overall quality of life through holistic, compassionate care.
