Pancreas is one most vital organ of human body which converts the food we eat into fuel for the body’s cells. It has an exocrine function that helps in digestion and an endocrine function that regulates blood sugar. Some infection or complication of pancreas can lead to acute pancreatitis, which is a condition where the pancreas becomes inflamed (swollen). The most common cause of acute pancreatitis is stones in the gallbladder. Most people with acute pancreatitis start to feel better within about a week and have no further problems.
