I had severe pancreatitis 20 years ago and I still have to be careful what I eat and drink: Stay away from sweets, fruit, juices, alcoholic drinks and everything that has high sugar content. Papaya helps a little, but a product containing plant-derived enzymes bromelain and papain, and other enzyme helps the best. It has been made for joint pain, but it really helps with pancreatitis.
The normal dosage is 3 tablets twice a day on an empty stomach. When I have it really bad, I take 3× 5 pills. It saved my life. With this supplement, I can eat a normal diet.
