WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF ACUTE PANCREATITIS?Gallstones and drinking too much alcohol are the two most common causes and together account for around eight of 10 attacks of acute pancreatitis. Gallstones cause problems when small stones pass out of the gallbladder into the bile duct and temporarily block the pancreas. Alcohol is a toxin to the pancreas and some people are more susceptible to damage from alcohol than others. Damage occurs both with binge drinking and regular excess drinking.
