The pancreas is one of the most important and at the same time the most vulnerable digestive system. Her illnesses are accompanied by severe pain and lead to serious consequences for the body: the development of diabetes mellitus and chronic pancreatitis, the presence of which adversely affects the quality of life of the patient.
It should be noted that diseases of the pancreas are known since ancient times, but success in their treatment was achieved only in the second half of the last century. In this case, treatment should be started immediately, as soon as it becomes clear that it hurts this particular body. To be treated it is necessary under constant medical supervision, including the analysis of blood and urine, the control of water and acid-base balance. All this implies mandatory hospitalization of the patient with complete exclusion of self-treatment.
If, for any reason, the pancreas hurts, but there is no opportunity to seek medical help, you should try to take the most comfortable position, which hurts less. Then put on the stomach a bubble with ice and completely give up eating. No drugs that stimulate the digestive processes, including the widely advertised mezim drug, can not be taken.
If the pancreas hurts, you need to try to provide her with peace, while reducing her exocrine activity in the production of digestive juices. Of drugs, taking pills that relieve spasm of blood vessels is acceptable. Their action will ensure the outflow of already synthesized digestive juices, stagnation of which can cause tissue necrosis.
It is also necessary to take medications, whose action is aimed at reducing the level of acidity of gastric contents. From its excessive amount, the pancreas can also be affected.
Tablets can be replaced with alkaline mineral waters, which must be drunk every two hours. In a normal state, the pancreas neutralizes the acidity of the gastric contents, but with pain it requires medical assistance.
As a rule, if the pancreas hurts, the doctor prescribes medicines that help suppress the production of digestive enzymes. It can be sandostatin or somatostatin. The duration of the course of treatment with medications can be different: from several days to a month and more.
To inhibit the exocrine activity will help drugs such as dalargin and peritol. But all these preparations should be prescribed by the doctor, taking into account the nature of the disease and the characteristics of the patient.
