Pancreatits

Were you looking for information about Pancreatitis? Pancreatits is a common misspelling of pancreatitis.
 
Pancreatitis, an inflammation of the pancreas, occurs when the digestive enzymes become active inside the pancreas and start "digesting" it. Normally, these enzymes do not become active until they reach the small intestine, where they begin digesting food. Some of the most common causes of this condition include gallstones and alcoholism. Treatment will vary, depending on the type of pancreatitis and the symptoms. However, treatment options may include medications, surgery, and lifestyle changes.
