Coffee and Pancreatitis

As mentioned previously in this site i have removed coffee completely from my diet due to contracting acute pancreatitis. It is possible to simply drink de-caffeine coffee if you must continue to drink. This coffee has much lower levels of caffeine and is easier for the pancreas to process. The pancreas does have to work hard to process drinks that are high in caffeine. Coffee does have other health benefits and negatives but when it comes to the pancreas unfortunately it is predominantly negative as it makes the organ work a lot harder. My advice on drinking coffee with pancreatitis would be to try de-caff style coffee, which will be much easier on the pancreas to process and it will still allow you to have that fantastic taste of coffee.
