Did You Know?
How much you eat alters more than your waistline. It also affects your body’s organs, starting with your pancreas. With each bite, your pancreas must release enough digestive juices and hormones for you to benefit from the food you eat. Putting too much stress on your pancreas—by too much eating, drinking, or smoking—can cause serious health issues.

The pancreas lies behind your stomach. It’s surrounded by the intestines, liver, and gallbladder. These neighboring organs work together to help you digest your food. The best known hormone produced by the pancreas is insulin. Insulin controls how much sugar, or glucose is taken up by your body’s cells. If the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas are damaged, diabetes may arise. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the pancreas can’t produce enough insulin to handle the sugar in your blood. Obesity worsens type 2 diabetes.
 
Be Well-Inspired
Tracking your family’s medical history can help you learn if you’re at risk for pancreatic problems. It’s always a good idea to tell your doctor if there’s been a family history of pancreatic disease. That may not sound like much, but to a doctor it’s very important information.

Also talk to your doctor if you have any of these symptoms of pancreatitis:
  • abdominal pain
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • fever
  • rapid pulse
  • unexplained weight loss
  • diarrhea
  • oily stools
