Research shows pancreatitis increases diabetes risk

Posted on Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015 at 2:28 pm by Williams Hart    

The correlation between pancreatitis and diabetes mellitus has once again been confirmed by new research, but with a twist – scientists have found that the risk of developing diabetes is much more severe for those with pancreatitis, and visa-versa.

The study involved 127 patients who have suffered and survived from a pancreatitis attack. Of the 127 participants, 28 of them developed diabetes either during index admission or during the course of the follow up. Researchers further found that patients with more severe pancreatitis attacks were at higher risk of developing diabetes.

Risperdal is known to over-activate the parathyroid gland, which in turn may increase calcium and phosphorus levels in the bloodstream. Too much calcium in the bloodstream may cause the lining of your pancreas to become inflamed, causing pancreatitis. Our legal team at Williams Hart is willing shed light on your inquiries about obtain financial compensation through a lawsuit if you have been harmed by this drug in any way.
