Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* The residue of oils in urine indicate possible presence of ketones due to various reasons, not necessarily indicate pancreatitis.
* There are various reasons as low carbohydrate intake, excess protein intake, starvation, over exhaustion, uncontrolled diabetes or others.

I recommend a thorough case evaluation with analysis of supportive documents of reports.
Regards.

I have pain in my abdomen area. Feels swollen and hurts when I push on it. I have been dealing with this problem since Oct. I have had a CT scan done negative. Also had a Urine test and blood work to check liver and kidney function. Then was put on CIPRO and then another antibiotic for possible Uninary tract issues. I had no success with either and am still having pain. I am wondering if you have any ideas? I ask doctor if it could be a hernia and he stated no that he would see it on the CT scan. I am concerned that it could possibly be Pacreatitus. Would that show up on an abdominal scan? Also my Colon was checked and said to be good.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
