What Is Pancreatitis?

Can Pancreatitis Be Prevented?

Because most cases of pancreatitis are caused by alcohol abuse, prevention is directed at responsible drinking or no drinking at all. If heavy drinking is a concern, talk to your doctor or health care professional about a referral to an alcohol treatment center. Also, you may benefit from a support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous.
