How can repeat attacks of acute pancreatitis be prevented?
Physicians discuss about how recurring episodes of acute pancreatitis may be prevented by first aiming to isolate the cause and removing it to see if that resolves the issue. They explain how in cases where no cause can be found, different treatment regiments, such as pancreatic enzyme supplementation, antioxident cocktails, or a low-fat diet, may be recommended, although neither of these may be more effective than no medication. Despite this, physicians remain committed to understanding and finding a solution to cases where there is no obvious cause of acute pancreatitis.
