I eat very low fat to no-fat food and that helps me to not have an attack.

Comment from: Dave, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: March 21

Yes - lowering fats (ice cream, baked goods, butter, margarine, and similar) helps considerably. I now cook oatmeal every day, add craisins, almonds, etc. - less eggs, no bacon or sausage, no pizza, less cheese snacks, less chocolate, no coffee, low fat milk, less sugar, but more fruit, vegetables. I also eat smaller portions. I don`t need prilosec anymore, lost 10 pounds, feel fine.

Slightly worried at the thought of completely eliminating alchohol and eternally monitoring diet, I am recovering from a gall bladder removal surgery after painfull pancreatitis.
