You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.

I'm sorry to hear of this with Dolan. Please don't hesitate to hospitalize him at a 24 hour facility. Acute pancreatitis and acute hemorrhagic diarrhea syndrome (AHDS) are both over-represented in min pins and both are life-threatening. His glycemic regulation will be quite difficult as well not only because his caloric intake is going to change but also because there's considerable inflammation throughout his body at this time.

AHDS is an umbrella term that refers to hemorrhagic enteritis or colitis associated with a number of infectious and non-infectious causes and that typically lasts less than 1 week in duration. A specific underlying cause hasn't been determined in min pins. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
