    Symptoms of pancreatitis include:

    • upper abdominal pain radiating to the back and can be intermittent or continuous
    • nausea
    • vomiting
    • abdominal distension and,
    • steatorrhoea (excess fat in the stools, stools are oily and hard to flush)

    If you suffer any of these symptoms, make sure you book in immediately with your doctor/GP to get it checked out. An Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) can help you to manage your diet whilst relieving the symptoms above.
