In order to understand the severity of pancreatitis, it’s important to understand the vital role that the pancreas plays in the digestive system. The pancreas is located in the upper part of the abdomen. It is a gland which plays two major roles: aiding in digestion and releasing hormones which control storage and use of food. Part of this process involves releasing enzymes to process carbohydrates and proteins in the small intestine. Enzymes are produced by the pancreas before they are actually needed. As a result, instead of breaking down carbohydrates and proteins, the pancreas attacks itself.
