The Expert Vet (11-20-2013) #5014: Pancreatitis — Diane’s dog Stella is suffering from it. It can be life threatening — so if your dog vomits and is feeling blah, don’t hesitate to go to the vet for testing.
Let's talk about living day-to-day with Diabetes. Get the most out of life!
Today we would like to welcome Maria Petzel, a Clinical Dietitian with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Today we will be discussing Nutrition after Whipple Surgery and nutrition for those with Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Cancer. As many of us know, November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month.
According to the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers. Only 6% of patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer will survive more than five years. One theory that pancreatic cancer has a low survival rate, is because the symptoms may not be apparent until the cancer has already spread significantly.
One method of treatment is Whipple surgery, named after the first surgeon to perform the procedure, Allen Whipple. Whipple surgery consist of removing a significant portion of the pancreas next to the small intestines It also involves removal of the duodenum, a portion of the common bile duct, gallbladder, and sometimes part of the stomach. Afterwards, surgeons reconnect the remaining intestine, bile duct, and pancreas.
This is obviously a very intense surgery for a person to undergo, especially when recovering. It is critical for a person to consult with either a registered Dietitian or Doctor both before & after a surgical procedure.
Every holiday season, the veterinary profession sees a significant statistical spike in cases of this potentially deadly disease. Tune in tonight to find out why this is, and what you can do to prevent your pet from from being in danger.

Amber Lopez is a survivor of child abuse, human trafficking, sexual assault, and domestic violence and has struggled with numerous mental illnesses such as PTS and severe depression. Ambers last "normal" childhood memory was dancing with a dance production company called "Starshine Stage Players". Shortly before her 12th birthday, her dreams of becoming a professional ballet dancer abruptly ended and her life was tragically changed forever. She was abducted, drugged and traded to a man who was epitome of evil. She was held in captivity as a sex slave for 30 days and in that time she was raped & abused repeatedly, beat with the butt of a gun and forced to watch one of the four other children, who was also captive, be sexually abused as well. As a result of a lifetime of addictions, four years ago she was told that she only had 2 years to live from a diagnosis of severe chronic pancreatitis and liver damage but by the grace of God 3 months later there were no signs of damage. Currently Amber is writing her first book and is an active member of “Made for Them” and “Breaking the Chains” which are local anti-human trafficking organizations/ministries. She is also a mother of 5 boys and plans to continue her education majoring in Journalism.

Shae Martin Worthy is a Birmingham, Alabama native with a beautiful daughter, Ariel. Shae was engaged to her high school sweetheart, Timothy, who passed away on January 27, 2010 after a two year fight against pancreatitis. Tim was one of Shae's biggest supporters of her dream of becoming a writer. Tim even 'sacrificed' and read all of Shae's books. Tim hated to read novels, so this was proof-positive that he loved and supported her. She has been writing for years, and has finally taken the time to become a publishd author.
She has finally decided to share her works with the world. Her debut novel, Without Parental Consent, has all the ingredients of becoming a best seller.

Our guest, author Carole Whang Schutter, believes miracles happen all around us if we are willing to “see” them through God’s eyes. And we need to H.E.A.L. in order to reach our godly potential. Do you need healing in your life? Are you tired of being a nobody? Do you know that God sees you as His precious child, with the ability to move mountains. Tune in today as Carole shares her HEALing tips.
Carole Whang Schutter was born in Hawaii, one generation removed from the poverty of plantation life. A plain, shy child, she grew up to marry two controversial men and lived in mansions in Hawaii and Aspen. It was in Aspen that she experienced devastating tragedies. She
went from being an insecure child to a socialite and then a recluse. In the silence of her memories, plagued with illnesses, she found the answer to the miracle of finding happiness in spite of one's circumstances. With the answer came relief from a lifetime of migraines, the spontaneous remission of a precancerous tumor that caused her to be hospitalized five times with pancreatitis in less than three years, and a new career as a screenwriter. At 53, she became part of 1.1% of all screenwriters who ever get a movie made although she didn't even know there were screenwriting programs. She is a partner in CouldBe TV and believes that anything is possible.
