LPLD and pregnancy

I was diagnosed 2015. Till then I didnt know. Before that my pregnancy was very complicated but managed in ICU. Then I got pancreatitis and was in ICU. Now I am on drugs.... diet of course....tight ....


Hi Dinithi, that all sounds very scary. I hope you and your baby are now doing well?

I'd love to know a lot more about the circumstances of your diagnosis, how you're managing with the new fat restrictions and what drugs you are on.

I see that you're from the UK. It would be good to know whereabouts and which doctor you are seen by.

Also, how did you find us?!
