Hello. Thank you for writing.

I can give you some general information. If you’re recovering from acute or chronic pancreatitis, you should avoid drinking alcohol (which you already do). If you smoke, make it a priority to quit. Focus on eating a low-fat diet that won’t tax or inflame your pancreas. You should also focus on staying hydrated, keeping an electrolyte beverage or a bottle of water with you at all times. If you’ve been hospitalized due to a pancreatitis flare-up, your doctor will probably refer you to a dietitian to help you learn how to change your eating habits permanently. You can read more from Healthline in the resource below. Copy & paste the link:
