Expert Video - What diet or supplements are recommended for children recovering from acute pancreatitis?
Physicians discuss whether families should consider special diets, supplements, vitamins, or medications for their child following recovery from acute pancreatitis in order to prevent future episodes from recurring. They describe that most children will be able to, and should, return to their regular diet, supplements, and medication prior to having had their episode. In rarer and more severe cases however, they recommend a low-fat diet for a week or so. At present, there is no clear evidence of any specific diet, vitamins, or medications that will prevent future episodes of acute pancreatitis.
