Pancretitis

Were you looking for information about Pancreatitis? Pancretitis is a common misspelling of pancreatitis.
 
Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas, a large gland located behind the stomach. The pancreas produces certain digestive enzymes that are used in the small intestine to digest food. However, if these enzymes become "active" too early, while they are still in the pancreas, they begin digesting the pancreas itself (resulting in pancreatitis). Possible symptoms of pancreatitis include a swollen and tender abdomen (stomach), vomiting, and fever. Treatment options may include medications, surgery, and lifestyle changes.
