Pancreatitis is a very painful ailment that can cause hospitalization and many days off of work. While for some, the illness is unavoidable, most patients can curb their attacks by being super careful about what they eat. When it comes down to eating a donut while rushing in the morning, or suffering the whole day with a pancreas attack- the choice is pretty simple. Always steer clear of foods that can trigger an attack or make your condition worsen.
That spaghetti recipe your grandmother made that you adore- sadly that may have to come to a halt if you suffer from pancreatitis. Sauces such as marinara or a thick Bolognese may be your worst nightmare. Water them down or use very small portions if you need to, I find that using low fat butter or a white sauce isn’t as harsh on my pancreas.
