Anerlisa’s health Condition prompted us to dig deep and try to understand what the diseases is, if its life threatening and if it can cause death.
Pancreatitis can appear in two very different ways. Acute pancreatitis is sudden while chronic pancreatitis is recurring or persistent. Some cases of pancreatitis may be mild and go away on their own without treatment. However, severe cases can lead to potentially fatal complications, including death.
Is pancreatitis life threatening?
Severe pancreatitis can result in damage to other vital organs such as the heart, lung and kidneys. There are two forms of pancreatitis: acute and chronic: Acutepancreatitis occurs suddenly and may result in life-threatening complications; however the majority of patients (80 percent) recover completely.
Can pancreatitis lead to death?
If they aren't, you may develop complications like pancreatic cysts, abscesses, and leaks of pancreatic fluid into the abdomen, which can lead to other long-term problems or even death. Shock is a possibly fatal complication of acutepancreatitis
However, one in five cases are severe and can result in life-threatening complications, such as multiple organ failure. In severe cases where complications develop, there's a high risk of the condition being fatal. In England, just over 1,000 people die from acute pancreatitis every year.
