Pancreatitis can be an acute condition that strikes your patients suddenly, or chronic, in which the damage to their pancreas takes many years to develop, and injury and scarring is permanent.


Help your patients get an early start recognizing and seeking treatment for this condition by sharing the April 2019 issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology AGA Patient Education Section with them.





Your patients will better understand whether they will require a short hospital stay, as with acute pancreatitis, or will need to form a treatment plan with your help, as with chronic pancreatitis, for a good outlook today. More information on pancreatitis is available on AGA’s GI Patient Center.
