Acute pancreatitis

Acute pancreatitis is a sudden and severe inflammation of the pancreas, an organ located behind the stomach that plays a crucial role in digestion and regulating blood sugar levels. This condition can range from mild and self-limiting to severe and life-threatening. Acute pancreatitis occurs when digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas become activated within the pancreas itself, leading to tissue damage and inflammation.

The most common causes of acute pancreatitis include:

  • Gallstones
  • Alcohol Consumption
  • Trauma or Injury
  • High Triglyceride Levels
  • ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography)
