Diet for pancreatic necrosis: nutrition before surgery and after

Pancreatic necrosis is characterized by necrosis of pancreatic cells( the body starts to produce enzymes, release them to the outside and destroy their own tissue), which results in inadequate digestive system work. The body can not digest food, even the "lightest".

Pancreatic necrosis occurs as a result of improper dietary compliance with pancreatitis. To be treated only by a surgical method and requires adherence to a special diet before and after the operation.


The diet for pancreatic necrosis of the pancreas is very strict. The patient is not allowed to eat or drink anything for several days before surgery.
