I'm 22 and have recently been diagnosed with Chronic Pancreatitis. I have never smoked and don't drink although when doctors ask and you tell them this they obviously look at you as if you have 3 heads. I'm currently taking Creon enzyme replacements, being tested for hereditary pancreatitis, vitamin d defficiency, awaiting bone density scan results, having repeat mri scans, getting a pancreatic stent and possible gall bladder removal. A bit of a medical mystery to the docs as they say im not a 'normal' case whatever that is.
I've had type 1 Diabetes for 6 years, yet i can't seem to find anywhere or anyone who's ever had diabetes first and then developed pancreatitis, everywhere i search its always supposed to happen the other way around. I've stressed this with the doctors in case i was misdiagnosed as type two but they have said they are definite i am type 1 and the pancreatitis hasn't been underlying.
Sorry for the long post but is anyone in the same boat?
