I was diagnosed three months ago with Acute Pancreatitis. I used to drink wine. About two bottles of wine every week. Nothing else ! I thought that this was within the safe limits for alcohol consumption, so I was surprised when the doctor told me to quit drinking. I have, and it's not a problem as I was never truly addicted, in my opinion. So, what do you think?
I have to take various medications for high blood pressure, and these have warnings attached making it clear that that possible side affects might result in pancreatitis. My GP has changed one of them as a result, but the hospital doctors are adamant that my problems are due to alcohol. So, how can they tell? How do they know the difference between damage done to the pancreas by alcohol and damage done by medications? Anyone know?
Thanks for your help.
