Chronic pancreatitis
I have done CECT scan of pelvis and abdomen and they have found calcification of head and uncinate process of pancreas. The radiology report says consistent with chronic calcific pancreatitis. I have done my blood tests also and all my liver function, CBC, cholesterol and triglycerides are all at moderate levels. My lipase levels are 123 as against normal of 0-60. I don't have any abdominal pain and my motions are fine. I got one attack of acute pancreatitis in 2018. I was an occasional alcoholic and smoker. Now I have 100% quit both and only chew little tobacco and betel nuts just once or twice in a day. I don't have outside food anymore and having low fat diet only. My question is- 1. Do I have actually chronic pancreatitis? 2. With complete alcohol and smoking abstinence and continuing on low fat food and exercise can I control the progression of this disease. PS- I have also lost 5 kgs weight. I have grade 1 fatty liver since years.
