Information for Patients

Pancreatic Diseases

The pancreas is a gland behind your stomach and in front of your spine. It produces juices that help break down food and hormones that help control blood sugar levels. Problems with the pancreas can lead to many health problems. These include

  • Pancreatitis, or inflammation of the pancreas: This happens when digestive enzymes start digesting the pancreas itself
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder in which thick, sticky mucus can also block tubes in your pancreas

The pancreas also plays a role in diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas no longer make insulin because the body's immune system has attacked them. In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas loses the ability to secrete enough insulin in response to meals.

  • Abdominal tap
  • Acute pancreatitis
  • Amylase - blood
  • Amylase - urine
  • Annular pancreas
  • ERCP
  • Insulinoma
  • Lipase test
  • Pancreas divisum
  • Pancreatic abscess
  • Pancreatic pseudocyst
  • Zollinger-Ellison syndrome
