What not to do with pancreatitis?
Pancreatitis is called the inflammation of the pancreas caused by one reason or another, as a result of which the enzymes produced by it are not released into the duodenum, as it should be by nature, but are activated in the body of the gland itself, thereby destroying it from the inside.
Before we talk about what can and cannot be eaten with pancreatitis, it should be noted that physicians distinguish acute and chronic pancreatitis by the nature of the disease. Each form of it requires a special approach to treatment and the diet prescribed for this, also has its own characteristics. They are forced to upset you, but the fundamental factor in the treatment of an attack of acute pancreatitis is the creation of complete functional rest for the inflamed pancreas. So it will take several days to fully starve for medicinal purposes, after which it will be possible to switch to a special, sparing diet.
