Causes & Risk Factors for Pancreatitis

Pancreatitis happens when the pancreas, a large organ located behind the stomach, gets swollen and inflamed. This condition might lead to many health issues since this apart is responsible for generating food-digesting enzymes and insulin to process sugar. There are many triggers of pancreatitis, depending on your lifestyle and health condition. Below are the top 10 causes of pancreatitis that you should know to take preventive measures.

1Abdominal Surgery

If you have abdominal surgery, then you might be at increased risks of pancreatitis. This is especially true when you experience some side effects and infections after the operation. In fact, many people have reported that they have both chronic and acute pancreatitis after having surgery on the abdomen, particularly in the recovery period. It is important to notice some common early signs of pancreatitis and visit your doctor as soon as possible to get early treatments. This is important to prevent further complications and damages to your pancreas. [1]
