Treatment of pancreatitis in “DoctorPRO” in Cherkassy
Pancreas regulates biochemical processes in the body and promotes the production of digestive enzymes. The latter help to break down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates contained in food. Moreover, the gland produces insulin which regulates the level of glucose in our body. It is the problems with the pancreas that are considered the first cause of diabetes.
Inflammation of the pancreas leads to disorders in the endocrine function, which causes the risk of development of pancreatitis. This disease is typical for people of any age and sex, but most often it affects women and men in old age.
Symptoms of pancreatitis are as follows:
- severe pain under the ribs (sometimes the pain is girdle in nature)
- increased sweating;
- increased body temperature;
- loss of appetite and weakness.
