Welcome to HCM,
There are two important factor for pancreatitis,alcohol use and Gall stones.You are not having both of these,but there are many other factors like Viral infections (Cocksakie B and mumps), Ischaemia, Hyperlipidaemia,Drugs (thiazides, steroids, azathioprine, frusemide),Trauma to abdomen, Biliary microlithiasis, Parasitic infection.
You are diabetic so take care of diabetes, this can damage pancreas and even diabetes may need special attention like use of insulin for treatment.
If your disease is mild take care and monitor with consultation of Physician,there are many complications.
Please take care.
Good Luck
