What is dangerous pancreatitis?

Pancreatitis is an inflammatory process that occurs in the pancreas. It starts due to the fact that the enzymes that are produced by such an organ, for one reason or another, do not enter the intestine. As a result, they begin to digest the cells of the pancreas itself. Let us dwell in more detail on what is dangerous pancreatitis and what complications can arise if not its timely treatment is started.

Symptoms of pancreatitis

Pancreatitis is manifested by the following symptoms:

  • nausea and vomiting;
  • in the fecal masses there are particles of undigested food;
  • pain is observed during breathing;
  • stomach bleeding;
  • stomach cramps.

Pancreatitis danger

The inflammatory process of the pancreas is very dangerous. After all, active enzymes not only digest its tissues, but also subsequently erode the walls of the organ. Then they end up in the blood, through which they are distributed throughout the body. Very negative effects occur when enzymes enter the stomach.They cause bleeding and also contribute to the formation of fistulas.

If you do not start the treatment of pancreatitis, its consequences will be very serious. It can lead to sepsis. Often it causes abnormalities in the structure of the brain. In addition, pancreatitis leads to a lack of insulin in the body. This, in turn, causes such a disease as diabetes.

In pancreatitis, the inflammatory process develops in most cases very rapidly. It causes anemia in humans and contributes to a decrease in pressure. When such an ailment becomes chronic, the probability of the formation of cancer is high. Also in this organ cysts begin to form. They negatively affect the process of digestion. In addition, a person's immunity decreases and he becomes susceptible to various viral and infectious diseases.

Complications of acute pancreatitis pose a serious danger to the work of such organs as the heart, liver and kidneys. As a result, a great threat to human life is created. That is why it is so important not to start pancreatitis, and to see a doctor at the very first symptoms of such a disease.
