Pancreatic Conditions

Pancreatic Conditions

Herbal remedies for diseases of the pancreas, such as pancreatic cancer and diabetes in dogs and cats.

The liver is a complex organ that interacts with most organs in the body, including the intestinal tract, cardiovascular system, kidneys, and autonomic nervous system. Nutritional support for the liver must address these interactions must support liver metabolism, the pancreas and pancreatic function, hepatic circulation, bile production and flow, and hepatic immune function.

 

The pancreas is an important organ in your pet’s body which plays two significant roles. It produces the enzymes needed for the digestion of certain foods, and it produces the hormones such as insulin which are required for the metabolism of sugar and amino acids. When these functions are compromised a number of health complications can arise.

Pancreatic conditions are often serious and can include disorders such as pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer and diabetes. While symptoms will vary depending on the type of pancreatic condition, they may include a number of fairly broad symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, abdominal pain, excessive thirst or general lethargy. If you suspect that your pet may have a pancreatic condition, then a tip to the vet is essential.

The pancreas has two major functions, divided into the exocrine and endocrine portions. Pancreatic exocrine function secretes acid-neutralizing bicarbonate and several digestive enzymes. The endocrine pancreas supplies hormones that circulate throughout the body and help control metabolism. The pancreas is also charged with producing digestive juices and enzymes to help digest fats and proteins and producing the hormone, insulin, plus many other bodily operations. Diabetes is a deficiency of the pancreatic hormone called insulin.

The cause of pancreatic conditions is not always known, however, there do seem to be a number of common risk factors that increase the chances of your pet developing a pancreatic condition. These include genetic factors, diet, obesity, high-fat meals; build up of toxins in the body and trauma to the pancreas itself.

Herbal Remedies:

Herbal remedies have been shown to be successful in both prevention and management of diabetes and other pancreatic and digestive conditions, to maintain blood sugar levels and normal insulin levels, to maintain eye health, to prevent nerve and tissue damage often associated with the condition and boost immunity to help limit disease recurrence or progression as well as to help limit the progression of pancreatic cancer.

Once a diagnosis has been made and veterinary treatment administered, herbal and homeopathic remedies can be used as complimentary and adjunctive therapies for pancreatic conditions.

Conventional Remedies:

When at the vet, make sure you provide your veterinarian with your pet’s medical history and a detailed description of symptoms. After a thorough physical examination, your vet will probably run some blood tests where hormone levels will be checked and signs of enzymes in the blood picked up. Additional testing and scans may be necessary if pancreatic cancer is suspected.

Treatment of pancreatic conditions will depend entirely on what condition is diagnosed. However, any pancreatic condition is generally considered to be serious and in many cases intensive veterinary treatment is necessary. This may include intravenous nutrition, surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy as well as life long medication such as insulin. Lifestyle changes including adjusting your pet’s diet and reducing fat intake are often advised.
