The Association of Obesity and Severity of Acute Pancreatitis in Uttaradit Hospital
Keywords:Obesity, Severity of Acute pancreatitis, Acute pancreatitis, Body mass index
Objective: To study the relationship between obesity and the severity of acute pancreatitis.
Method: Studying 194 Acute severe patients in Uttaradit hospital from July 13th, 2019 - July 13th, 2022. There were 97 patients who had obesity and 97 Patients who had non-obesity. Collecting data from ICD-10 (K850- K859) medical records divided into 2 groups. Classification of severity of acute pancreatitis by Revised Atlanta Classification. All data were analyzed by descriptive and analytics study.
Result: Acute pancreatitis patients with obesity have 0.78 times risk of increasing severity of acute pancreatitis with not statistically significant (OR=0.78, 95% CI=0.41-1.50, p=0.456)
Conclusion: There is no relationship between obesity and the severity of acute pancreatitis. Because the severity of acute pancreatitis does not depend on obesity alone, but it depends on a variety of factors. However, obesity poses a risk of developing many health problems. Disease progression and prevention should be monitored to improve quality of life in the future.
