Thanks for posting
If you have been suffering from acute pancreatitis
(if already confirmed in the hospital) since 2001, it means you are having but chronic pancreatitis and one of its major complications is hyperglycemia
(with further complications between acute metabolic complications involved with diabetes). Your sugar levels ranging from 245-280 shows clearly that you are already diabetic as a result of the chronic pancreatitis ( probably due to insulin deficiency= result of damage of pancreas). Right now, you need to be managed as a diabetic patient with insulin shots. Your loose motion
can be due to diabetic gastroparesis
( your stomach is unable to digest food normally hence loose motion/poor GI transit). Loose stool could also be as a result of the chronic pancreatitis. You need to constantly be on rehydration therapy to prevent dehydration
as a result of the loose stools.
Eating the right diet is important for people with chronic pancreatitis. A nutritionist can help you create the best diet to maintain a healthy weight and receive the correct vitamins and minerals
. All patients should be:
- Drinking plenty of liquids
- Eating a low-fat diet
- Eating small, frequent meals (this helps reduce digestive symptoms)
- Getting enough vitamins and calcium in the diet, or as extra supplements
- Limiting caffeine
The doctor may prescribe pancreatic enzymes, which you must take with every meal. The enzymes will help you digest food better and gain weight.
Avoid smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages, even if your pancreatitis is mild.
Other treatments may involve:
- Pain medicines or a surgical nerve block
to relieve pain
- Taking insulin to control blood sugar (glucose) levels
Surgery may be recommended if a blockage is found. In severe cases, part or all of the pancreas may be removed.
Hope this is enough info for guideline.
