The pancreas is a vital organ for the full functioning of the body. It forms valuable enzymes that help in the process of digestion, as well as controls the level of sugar in the blood. It is located behind the stomach, lies transversely and in size reaches fifteen centimeters.
A healthy pancreas has a pinkish color. And if this organ is susceptible to any disease, it becomes gray, dull, friable and tuberous. You can examine the condition of the organ with the help of an ultrasound machine.
Friable pancreas is a consequence of an organ failure. Due to malnutrition and lifestyle, it can at one point be overfilled with the strongest enzymes. And after that he begins to digest himself. This reaction leads to necrosis of the tissues of the organ, which is subsequently transmitted to other digestive organs. To avoid serious consequences, you need to regularly perform an ultrasound study, which will help identify the disease at an early stage.
The tuberous pancreas can become a symptom of one of the serious diseases. For example, pancreatitis, cholecystitis and diabetes. Symptoms of each of these diseases are very similar. It can be abdominal pain, especially after eating harmful foods and alcohol, nausea and weight loss. When these alarming symptoms appear, the doctor should be consulted immediately.
In some cases, tuberosity of the pancreas may be the norm. But most often this symptom serves as a signal for the development of inflammation or serious changes in the structure of the organ. Most often, it becomes loose and bumpy in the event that the patient leads an incorrect lifestyle and eats unhealthy food.
Diseases of the body can result in extremely serious consequences, if not paid attention to them in time. Acute diseases can gradually develop into chronic diseases. A loose structure of the pancreas can be transmitted to neighboring organs. After all, it is located in close proximity to the stomach, intestines, kidneys, liver and spleen. Diseases of this body develop rapidly, and if you do not go to the doctor in time, everything can end in a fatal outcome.
