The pancreas secretes the enzymes necessary to digest the food, produced by the duct cells, and insulin used for the transport of sugars, made by the islets of Lange Hans cells, into the blood.
The pancreas is a soft, elongated gland situated at the back of the upper abdominal cavity behind the stomach. It is divided into the head (through which the common bile duct runs as it enters the duodenum) and the body (which extends across the spine and the tail), which is close to the left kidney and to the spleen.
The pancreas has two main functions:
1: Produce sing a series of enzymes which help in the digestion of food. Enzymes produced in the pancreas are important in the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates and, particularly, fats. Bicarbonate is also produced in large amounts to neutralize the acid produced by the stomach.
2: Produces in a series of hormones which are important in maintaining a normal level of sugar in the blood. The best known of these hormones is insulin. Insulin deficiency of this hormone results in the development of diabetes. Another hormone (glucagons) helps to raise blood sugar, and several other hormones control intestinal function.
CHINESE MASTER 'S WAY of medication has done over hundreds of chronic pancreatitis cases and it has proven records of full recovery, all cases is being cured between 2 weeks to 2 months of intensive cure.
Any inflammation of the pancreas is called pancreatitis.
Acute pancreatitis results in severe inflammation of the gland and patients may be seriously ill.
Chronic pancreatitis may be cause by repeated attacks of acute pancreatitis or as the result of other injuries to the pancreas .
Damages to the pancreas occurs as the result of digestive enzymes leaking into the pancreas and starting to digest it. This sets up inflammation, and when the inflammation settles, the scarring process distorts the pancreas making further attacks of inflammation likely. Then a bigger episode will occurs. Resulting of prolonged damage to the pancreas, the pancreas fails to produce enough digestive enzymes to permit adequate digestion of food. This may leads to weight loss and the frequent passage of pale greasy stools, which contain excess amounts of fat. Further, the destruction of the cells, which produce insulin, may lead to the development of diabetes.
Causes of chronic pancreatitis
The most common cause of chronic pancreatitis is long-term excessive alcohol consumption. There is a direct relationship between the amount of alcohol consumed and the risk of developing chronic pancreatitis. Other causes include:
high levels of calcium in the blood
IN-BORN, present at birth
High blood fats (hypertriglyceridaemia)
Drugs (Some Chemical medication -can cause pancreatitis)
In a number of cases no specific cause can be identified, a condition known as idiopathic pancreatitis.
Symptoms of chronic pancreatitis
The symptoms of many.
Pain occurs in most patients at advance stage of the disease. This may vary in intensity from mild to severe. It may last for hours or sometimes days at a time and sometime strong painkillers also get no effect (cannot stop the pain CHINESE MASTER'S NEURO ACUPUNCTURE can stop the pain immediately usually after 30 minutes). It often radiates through to the back and can sometimes be relieved by crouching forward. It is commonly brought on by food consumption and so patients may be afraid to eat. It is also commonly severe through the night. The pain varies in nature, being gnawing, stabbing, aching or burning, but it tends to be constant when at late stage and may comes and go in waves. It may sometimes burn itself out but can remain an ongoing problem.
The mechanism of the pain is the obstruction of Qi in the organ. Some patients will have obstruction to the small ducts in the pancreas by small stones, and this is thought to cause backpressure and destruction of the pancreas. There is no relationship between the severity of the pain and the severity of the pancreatic inflammation.
The pain is often difficult to diagnose and can be mistaken for pain caused by virtually any other condition arising from the abdomen or lower chest.
The pain caused by pancreatitis may be a little same to pain caused by a peptic ulcer, irritable bowel syndrome, angina pectoris, gallstones.
Diabetes is also a common symptom which affects over half of all patients with long-standing chronic pancreatitis. Long-standing chronic inflammation results in scarring of the pancreas, which destroys the specialized areas of the pancreas, which produce insulin. Deficiency of insulin results in diabetes. Diabetes causes thirst, frequent urination and weight loss.
Diarrhoea occurs in just under half of patients. Normally, enzymes from the pancreas and small intestine break down all the fat in food, and the fat is then absorbed in the small bowel. With a reduced level of digestive enzymes the fat is not absorbed. When the fat reaches the large intestine, it is partially broken down by the bacteria in the colon. This produces substances, which irritate the colon and result in diarrhoea. The undigested fat also traps water in the faces, resulting in pale, bulky, greasy stools, which are difficult to flush away. They may make the water in the toilet look oily, smell offensive and may be associated with wind.
Weight loss occurs in virtually all patients with chronic pancreatitis. It is due to failure to absorb calories from food, and diabetes may also contribute to this. In addition, patients may be afraid to eat because eating brings on the pain. Depression is also common in chronic pancreatitis and this can also reduce appetite and lead to weight loss.
Jaundice (when patients develop yellow eyes and skin) occurs in about a third of patients with chronic pancreatitis. It is usually due to damage to the common bile duct, which drains bile from the liver to the duodenum. The common bile duct normally passes though the head of the pancreas. In long-standing chronic pancreatitis, the scarring in the head of the pancreas narrows the common bile duct. Some degree of narrowing may occur in up to half the patients with chronic pancreatitis but when the narrowing is severe, it prevents the bile draining from the liver into the duodenum. It then spills back into the blood and the patient's eyes and skin become yellow.
Vomiting after meals is a less common symptom but can occur as a result of severe pain. It may also be due to duodenal ulceration, which is often connected with chronic pancreatitis. In rare cases, the duodenum may be narrowed as a result of scarring secondary to chronic pancreatitis.
The patient will also feels very tire and dizzy from the pain and the episode. Some of them may not be able to stand up.
All of these could be cured by CHINESE MASTER'S way of medicine, between 2 weeks to 2 months of intensive treatment by Chinese Master.
Life Shortening Effects of Pancreatitis
Chronic pancreatitis is associated with a reduction in life expectancy.
Only half of the patients with a diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis will survive for longer than seven years following diagnosis data from UK, which can be avoided with CHINESE MASTER'S WAY of herbal strengthening. There is also an increased rate of cancer of the pancreas in patients with chronic pancreatitis and this accounts for a fifth of the deaths. Other causes of death include complications of diabetes and complications of alcoholism. Even when the pain and inflammation is gone you still needs to take some of Chinese Master's Pancreatitis Herbs to lengthen your life time.
CHINESE MASTER'S WAY of MEDICIEN will guild you to your recovery of this problem and guild you to prolong your beautiful life.
The old Chinese saying'" Health is your Greatest Wealth "
2. High cholesterol level (hypercholesterolaemia)
Cholesterol is one of the body's fats (lipids).
Cholesterol and another lipid, triglyceride, are important building blocks in the structure of cells and are also used in making hormones and producing energy. To some extent, the cholesterol level in blood depends on what you eat but it is mainly dependent on how the body makes cholesterol in the liver. The Qi lever in your Liver and Kidneys.
Having too much cholesterol in the blood is not a disease in itself, but can lead to the hardening and narrowing of the arteries (arteriosclerosis) in the major vascular systems.
For the sake of simplicity, there are two sorts of cholesterol: a 'good' sort called high density lipoprotein (HDL) and a 'bad' sort called low density lipoprotein (LDL).
HDL has a useful effect in reducing tissue cholesterol and taking it back to the liver. HDL actually protects against atherosclerosis. LDL may contribute to diseases of the arteries (cardiovascular disease).
The proportion of LDL-cholesterol to HDL-cholesterol that influences the degree to which atherosclerosis is likely to cause problems (heart attack).
LDL-cholesterol level can be lowered by eating a low fat diet and, if required, taking herbal medicine . Exercising can raise hDL-cholesterol level.
The significance of any particular cholesterol level cannot be assessed without taking into account the ratio between good and bad cholesterol (either total-cholesterol/HDL-cholesterol ratio or LDL-cholesterol/HDL cholesterol ratio) or the presence of other cardiovascular risks, such as smoking, diabetes and high blood pressure (hypertension). It is possible for someone to have a high level of total cholesterol and still have a relatively low cardiovascular risk because of an absence of other risk factors or because their family history is free from coronary disease.
Anyone with an established track record of cardiovascular disease such as angina pectoris, a previous myocardial infarction, coronary angioplasty or coronary bypass surgery should seek advice to keep their Total Cholesterol level below 5.2mmol/l or their LDL below 3.2mmol/l.
Cholesterol levels can run in families. If the inherited cholesterol levels are very high, this is called familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) or familial combined hyperlipidaemia (FCH) where the triglyceride levels are very high as well. Levels can also be influenced by the part of the world you live in: cholesterol levels in northern European countries are higher than in southern Europe and much higher than in Asia. It is known that the relationship to food is significant, but there is no doubt that genes also play a part. High cholesterol is also seen in connection with other diseases, such as reduced metabolism (due to thyroid hormone problems, for example), kidney diseases, diabetes and alcoholic's.
Symptoms of high cholesterol in the bloodstream.
High level of cholesterol in conjunction with other adverse factors increases the risk of developing arteriosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. Arteriosclerosis resulting in narrowing of the arteries. This does not occur suddenly, but builds up over many years during which cholesterol and fat have been deposited in the artery walls. The result is that the arteries become constricted and hardened, their elasticity disappears and the volume of blood able to travel through them is reduced.
The symptoms are therefore the consequences of cardiovascular disease. They depend on the degree of narrowing, may cause ruptures, and also the organ supplied by the affected arteries.
In the brain, an atherosclerotic carotid or cerebral (brain) artery might block with clotted blood (thrombus) or a smaller intracerebral vessel may rupture causing a local hemorrhage. Both these circumstances result in a stroke (Choong Fung).
In the heart, narrowed coronary arteries cause angina, and ruptured plaques cause coronary thrombosis (myocardial infarct), which may lead to reduced heart function (heart failure) if a significant amount of heart muscle is damaged. The obstruction of Qi in the Heart.
Carotid arteries in the neck can become narrowed and may lead to clots forming in the neck and floating downstream into the brain, causing a stroke (CVA) or recurrent temporary strokes (transient ischaemic attacks, also known as TIAs).
Leg pain on exertion can be experienced due to atherosclerosis in the arteries that supply the lower limbs (intermittent claudicating). If a major peripheral vessel to a lower limb blocks suddenly, an acutely ischaemic leg will occur which may be limb-threatening. In the worst cases of chronic lower limb atherosclerosis, this can lead to a leg so starved of blood that it cannot survive and requires amputation. Which could be cured by CHINESE MASTER'S MEDICIEN in a very short course of treatment.
Commonly for some people affected to have the disease in several arteries throughout their circulation including the aorta (the main artery in the chest and abdomen, the renal (kidney) arteries and the mesenteric (intestinal) vessels.
It will takes between 10 days to 2 months of intensive treatment to clear up the high unwanted problems and to restore your body conditions.
Chinese Master also have the special herbal medicine for these kind of pancreatitis problems.
