Has anyone experienced acute pancreatitis due to Trulicity?

Has anyone experienced acute pancreatitis due to Trulicity?

It's been three months since I was in Or other meds that work through the pancreas? I ended up in the hospital, have now been put on only insulin and metformin. It's been about three months since I was in the hospital and now the pains are starting again and am waiting for a call from the doctor for blood work. I'm hoping it hasn't become chronic, diabetes is hard enough to live with. Ugh

I am having a terrible time eating too many carbs. It’s like I have no willpower with certain foods.
