3 signs after eating may be a “signal” that the pancreas is sick

 3 signs after eating may be a “signal” that the pancreas is sick

 3 signs after eating may be a “signal” that the pancreas is sick,   If there are 3 “signs” after eating, it may be a “signal” that the pancreas is sick, see a doctor as soon as possible!

The pancreas is a compound gland, which has both internal and exocrine functions!

In terms of endocrine, the islets of the pancreas can secrete hormones such as insulin, pancreatic polypeptide and somatostatin, which can promote the metabolism of protein, fat, and sugar, and regulate the blood sugar of the human body;

In terms of exocrine, the acinar cells in the pancreas can secrete digestive enzymes, and the ductal epithelial cells in them can also secrete pancreatic juice, which plays a great role in the digestive function of the stomach.

Therefore, problems with the pancreas and stomach will also be affected. After eating, the patient will have the following three symptoms of discomfort.

1. Loss of appetite.

When a person is in a bad mood and suffers from gastrointestinal diseases, he may suffer from loss of appetite. Even if he is faced with a delicious meal, he does not have the desire to eat a bite.

After the pancreas has problems, it will also make people’s appetite worse, because the pancreas cannot secrete pancreatic juice normally, and the food in the stomach is not fully digested and decomposed, which will easily cause people to bloat.

Especially people suffering from pancreatic cancer are more likely to suffer from loss of appetite, weight loss, anemia, and abdominal pain.

2. Abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Abdominal pain and diarrhea after a meal are likely to be caused by improper diet. For example, eating expired or spoiled food will cause excessive gastrointestinal stimulation. If you have gastroenteritis, you may also suffer from it after eating. I feel abdominal pain and even frequent diarrhea.

For people suffering from pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer, abdominal pain and diarrhea after a meal are also normal. Because pancreatic juice cannot be secreted normally, gastrointestinal function is reduced, and it is more susceptible to food stimulation, so patients are easy to eat even if they only eat a little. No symptoms appear.

In particular, people suffering from pancreatic cancer will experience severe abdominal pain after a meal, and the body will lose weight quickly. Without effective treatment, they will lose their lives in a short time.

3. Nausea and vomiting.

When the pancreas is inflamed or cancer cells appear, the food eaten by the patient may cause excessive stimulation of the stomach. In addition, the function of the pancreas to secrete pancreatic juice decreases, and the stomach cannot digest and decompose food;

Therefore, food reflux causes nausea and vomiting. If cancer cells in the pancreas invade the stomach and the food cannot enter the stomach smoothly, it will also cause nausea and vomiting after eating.

If the above three conditions occur frequently after eating, it is recommended that you go to the hospital’s gastroenterology department for treatment. Under normal circumstances, the pancreatic problem can be found by imaging the pancreas.

For example, after suffering from pancreatitis, the main treatment methods are pain relief and anti-inflammatory. If suffering from pancreatic cancer, the patient needs to further cooperate with the doctor to conduct examinations to determine the specific conditions of the pancreas before formulating the corresponding treatment plan.

If cancer cells appear in the head of the pancreas and have not yet metastasized, pancreaticoduodenectomy can be considered for treatment. If cancer cells appear in the pancreatic body and tail, pancreatic body and tail resection can be performed for treatment.

However, whether cancer cells can be surgically removed depends on the patient’s physique. For example, the patient’s age is relatively old and the body is already intolerant of surgical treatment. Only drugs, drainage, anastomosis, etc. can be considered for treatment.

Because the fatality rate of pancreatic cancer is very high, 90% of patients have a 5-year survival rate of only 1%-3% after the disease is discovered.

It can be seen that pancreatic cancer is a serious threat to the safety of human life. I hope everyone can strengthen their awareness of cancer prevention as much as possible, and they should develop good living and eating habits in peacetime, and avoid irritation and invasion of the pancreas.

After suffering from pancreatic inflammation, don’t think that it’s just a small inflammation, so don’t cooperate with treatment, because chronic pancreatitis is very likely to develop into pancreatic cancer. Only by controlling the disease well and keeping the pancreas stable, the body will be harmed. Will become smaller.
