Acute pancreatitis is a disorder in which the pancreas becomes enlarged and inflamed in a short amount of time. The pancreas is a smaller organ that aids digestion and is placed behind the stomach. Within a week, most people with acute pancreatitis begin to feel better and have no further complications. However, severe acute pancreatitis might lead to catastrophic problems in certain patients. Alcohol is broken down into chemicals that are harmful to the pancreas as it is consumed. Pancreatitis might develop as a result of this over time. Drinking two drinks per day increases the risk of pancreatitis by a factor of two, with the risk increasing as the number of drinks increases. The pancreas has been damaged. There is a clear link between alcohol use and acute pancreatitis. Binge drinking – drinking a lot of alcohol in a short period of time – is also thought to increase your risk of developing acute pancreatitis.
