What can Cause Pancreatitis?
Pancreatitis occurs when digestive enzymes become activated while still in the pancreas, causing the cells of the pancreas to be aggravated and therefore causing inflammation. With recurring occurrences of acute pancreatitis, the pancreas can get damaged and that can lead to chronic pancreatitis. Scar tissue can develop in the pancreas, resulting in loss of normal functioning. Learn more about the cause of pancreatitis from Vaidya Balendu Prakash.
