    Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas. The most common causes of pancreatitis are from excessive alcohol intake or gallstone disease. If these causes have been ruled out, there are many more causes that can be explored. However, if you’ve been given a diagnosis of Idiopathic recurrent pancreatitis, it means the doctors have not been able to determine the cause of recurrent pancreatitis in your case. If your symptoms are ongoing, you should see your GP for further discussion.
