About Pancreatitis

Your pancreas makes enzymes that aid digestion. Pancreatitis happens when these enzymes become active inside the pancreas instead of becoming active in the small intestine. Pancreatitis is characterized by:

  • Inflammation
    The premature activation of the digestive enzymes inside the pancreas causes inflammation
  • Acute or chronic presentation
    Pancreatitis can be acute or chronic. Acute pancreatitis occurs suddenly, while chronic pancreatitis is a long-lasting condition, which causes the health of the pancreas to decline over time.
