Can someone help me understand the contraindications with Pancreatitis and Soda Pop? Why would you not want your pts to drink soda pop if their diagnosis is pancreatitis? I am a student RN in my final semester. I have looked over my textbooks and I cannot find anything that relates pancreatitis & pop. I am still trying to connect the dots with labs, symptoms, and pt conditions/diagnosis. Can anybody help me understand this issue?
