Chronic Pancreatitis – Treatment

Treatment for chronic pancreatitis usually consists of three mainstays:

  • Analgesia
  • Oral pancreatic enzyme supplements
  • Control of blood glucose levels

The patient may require large amounts of regular opiate medications and also the use of insulin as part of this management.

Surgery for removal of part or all of the pancreas and/or drainage procedures can also be performed in certain cases.
