Pancreas is one of the primary gland for digesting vital nutrients such as Fats, Protein and Carbohydrate. It is also responsible for the glucose metabolism and the home for the production of Insulin and Glucagon. There may be various cause to the pancreatitis such as Calcium diposition, Stones, Alcohol intakes, Genetics etc. But the facts you mentioned here seems that the cause due to your brother's pancreatitis is intake of alcohol. The best I could suggest to you that -
1. Avoid alcoholic drinks
2. Avoid Rich foods
3. Give more preferences to Carbohydrates first, then Proteins and the Fats the least.
4. Take advice from a reputed Gasteroenterologist.
5. Have more fruits and green vegetables.

** NOTE: Try to have simpler Proteins and Fats (avoid if possible) and complex carbohydrates

Avoid very spicy food, very oily food and all that. Tell him to completely quit smoking and alcohol, as they will do more damage than anything else. Nad aslo ask him to dring lot of fluids.

I have had severe and chronic pancreatitis in the past caused by an ERCP procedure that encountered a blockage and the surgeon tried to manipulate through. That resulted in a 29 day state In the hospital with 8 of those days in ICU. My fear, or concern, the past two days I have been feeling all of those tell tale signs of hurting all over again, play by play, and it scares me to death. Do I run to the nearest ER or pray it subsides on its own I am turning this over to you guys for possible help and guidance. Thanks, Susie

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
