My specialist is concerned that my pancreas has had even more damage from the consistantly high triglycerides. I tell ya guys
sometimes things just wont leave you alone... Got to see an endochrinologist, more stool samples, and another special MRI.
I'm truly hoping that this is just another hiccup.
Sometimes I feel so bitter that medicine caused this & the lupus problem. I often wish I could lash out at those responsible,
but that in itself is not being responsible. Guess I'm between a rock and a hard place....

Fingers crossed for better news for you! Any possibility they do pancreas transplants? I've never heard of it, but I really don't know anything about organ transplants, so maybe that could be worth exploring?

Thanks for your posts guys. I just wish I could rally a bit, I'm so tired of feeling sad..... I guess it goes with the territory.

Dam% this disease.  Yes, it is always something.  It is hard.  I see you on the forum often, and you are a strong person- most of us are.  Keep your head up- one day @ a time and keep in touch with us all!

Recent studies have shown a link between chronic vitamin D deficiency and several auto-immune diseases. The studies mention MS, diabetes, IBD, lupus and several others. It is a very common deficiency with some places (Saudi Arabia) showing up to 85% of the population deficient. A common recommendation is 2000 IU daily, but some studies show 5500 to 11000 IU for 20 weeks did not raise the blood levels of vitamin D above acceptable limits. Discuss this with your doctor, but if he/she approves the idea, get a supplement recommendation from a Naturopath or a nutritionist. There are all kinds of sources used for supplements and you would want an absorbable form like D3 or maybe 25 (OH) Cholecalciferol. Avoid D2 supplements which are less readily converted to the blood based form. It is one of the cheaper supplements and definitely worth exploring.
