The aim of the study is do correlation between the insulin total dose and the hospitalary stay.We included all
patients with acute pancreatitis by hypertriglyceridemia that were admitted in our hospital since 2008 to 2012. The
information was recollected from the clinical archive. The inclusion criterion was considered a concentration of serum
triglycerides greater than 1000mg/dl. We excluded patients with another causes of acute pancreatitis. The subjects were
categorized by insulin dose (low, medium, high).Acute pancreatitis was more common in men within the fourth decade of life,
and has risk factor of alcoholis m and smoking. The severity scales shown that acute pancreatitis by hypertriglyceridemia was
milder than other causes of pancreatitis. The insulin dose stayed in the range of 73 - 240 UI/day. Events of hypoglycemia
were similar in the groups of low and medium insulin dose.The pancreatitis by hypertriglyceridemia was not severe than
other kinds of acute pancreatitis, greater dose of insulin not improve the hospitalary stay
