Welcome to PancreatitisHelp.org

Our mission is to find reliable, actionable information for those suffering from pancreatitis.

Over 130,000 people in the U.S. live with chronic pancreatitis.  Another 50,000 Americans suffer from acute pancreatitis each year.  Yet  diagnosis is notoriously difficult, and wrong diagnoses can mean unnecessary procedures and needless suffering.  Once a diagnosis is made, patients face an uncertain and daunting future, with dire-sounding prognoses regarding recovery, and even life expectancy.

Our founder was diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis in early 2013.  After spending hours digging into medical journals and other sources, he started gathering the most helpful information and created this site to make the material available for others.

The contributors are not doctors, and nothing on this site should be considered medical advice.  You should consult a medical professional before following, altering or stopping any course of treatment for pancreatitis.  Pancreatitis is a serious condition that can be fatal; seek medical advice if you think you may have it, period.
