    Pancreatitis is when the pancreas, a gland which produces digestive enzymes and insulin, becomes inflamed. It can be an acute condition from which people typically (but not always) swiftly recover, or chronic where the symptoms, predominantly abdominal pain, are suffered long term. Around 70% of chronic pancreatitis cases are caused by alcohol abuse with smoking, genetics or a problem with the immune system responsible for the remainder. Whilst pain medications may be administered treatment focuses on encouraging lifestyle changes.

    Yes, if you have been diagnosed with pancreatitis it is important that you tell insurers when getting a travel insurance quote. If you are not asked about your health then read the policy carefully as this may mean pre existing medical conditions are automatically excluded. If you are asked and do not declare your pancreatitis then this could invalidate your cover leaving you responsible for settling any emergency medical bills and other costs your insurer would otherwise have covered.

    No, although it’s possible that you might be asked to pay a higher premium or that your insurer places limits or exclusions on your policy. When searching for the best travel insurance quote it may pay dividends to include specialists like Fish, who may not be on price comparison sites, on your list as, unlike mass market brokers, they are experienced in sourcing cover for people with health issues or disabilities.
