what can my boyfriend eat and can not eat with chronic pancreatitis ? he was diagnosed sep 4, 2010 and has no health insurance to get surgery . also is there anyway to get him on health insurance quickly and cheap such as medicaid , he will be 20 on jan 4, 2013 , has no kids .
no fats, no butter, nothing fried, and I mean NOTHING. NO egg yolks. NO alchohol. Not one drop. Google fat free diets for help. NO mayonnaise. No birthday cake. Angel food cake ok. Baked chicken, rice cooked in broth, mustard on sandwiches. Sherbet for dessert. No full fat milk, skim only. He must be meticulous about a fat free diet. spend a year learning it and it will be easy, but really learn it. No alcohol, not a sniff.
Add no smoking to that, basically everything's cooked in water, odors will stimulate the pancreas. He should be on just water, NO OTHER DRINKS, crackers.. Pain meds will cause him to hurt, eat w a saltine.. Great support group of FB called living with PANCREATITES .. Check it out! Surgery should be investigated , r u looking at TP/AIT???
Get on Enzyemes too once his flare subsides, Viokase are the best!!
