51 Possible Causes for Exocrine Pancreatic Function Normal

  • Diabetic Enteropathy

    CBC, electrolytes, blood urine nitrogen, creatinine, liver function studies, and thyroid-stimulating hormone were all within normal limits.[journal.diabetes.org] exocrine insufficiency.[journal.diabetes.org] […] associated with dietary sorbitol or lactose, enteric pathogens, pseudomembranous colitis, primary intestinal diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease, and pancreatic[journal.diabetes.org]

  • Recurrent Acute Pancreatitis

    Over time, some patients with AP and apparently normal morphology progress to obvious CP with calcifications and loss of endocrine and exocrine function (6, 11, 12).[pancreapedia.org] The exact mechanism by which acute pancreatitis progresses to chronic pancreatitis is not well understood.[pancreapedia.org]

  • Pancreatic Abscess

    There was mild to moderate exocrine dysfunction in 5/8 (63%) patients, and severe restriction of exocrine pancreatic function in 2/8 (25%).[gut.bmj.com] The oral glucose tolerance test was normal in 3/6 (50%) patients tested.[gut.bmj.com]

  • Pancreatic Insufficiency

    CONCLUSIONS: Our results show that exocrine pancreatic function is normal in all patients with FD and is most likely not a cause of abdominal complaints in this group of patients[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This report describes a 15-year-old girl with anorexia nervosa whose sweat electrolytes and pancreatic exocrine function were abnormal during a state of malnutrition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Gait function gradually increased to a walking distance of 1,500-3,000 m along with the normalization of the vitamin D and mineral blood levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pancreatic Neoplasm

    These cells produce hormones that help control the normal functions of the body.[pancreaticcancer.org.uk] The most common type of pancreatic cancer, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), is an exocrine tumour. Neuroendocrine tumours start in the neuroendocrine cells.[pancreaticcancer.org.uk] The most common type of pancreatic cancer, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) , is an exocrine tumour. Neuroendocrine tumours start in the neuroendocrine cells.[pancreaticcancer.org.uk]

  • Acute Pancreatitis

    The pathophysiology of acute pancreatitis is grossly due to the imbalance of the gland’s homeostasis or normal functioning.[symptoma.com] Common inciting factors like alcohol use, gallstones, and certain drugs injure the exocrine acinar cells of the pancreas and impair the secretion of zymogen granules.[symptoma.com] Once the process of acute pancreatitis is triggered, lysosomal and zymogen granule compartments fuse which advertently activate the trypsinogen to trypsin that initiates autodigestion[symptoma.com]

  • Pancreatitis

    Normal pancreatic exocrine function does not exclude MRI/MRCP chronic pancreatitis findings. J Clin Gastroenterol 2008;42:950–55. Catalano MF, Sahai A, Levy M, et al.[racgp.org.au] Chronic pancreatitis is characterized by progressive loss of the exocrine functions of the pancreas, that is, the production of pancreatic enzymes essential for normal digestion[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Damage to the pancreas can disrupt normal operation, in particular its endocrine and exocrine functions.[physio-pedia.com]

  • Chronic Pancreatitis

    The regulation of the beta-cell mass and the physiological incretin secretion are directly dependent on normal exocrine pancreatic function and fat hydrolysis.[doi.org] Secretin stimulation test: a positive result occurs if 60% or more pancreatic exocrine function is damaged.[patient.info] Chronic pancreatitis and exocrine dysfunction have been associated with a functional impairment of the incretin system.[doi.org]

  • Pancreatic Fistula

    Quantification of pancreatic exocrine function with secretin-enhanced magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography: normal values and short-term effects of pancreatic duct[ajronline.org]

  • Tropical Pancreatitis

    RESULTS: All patients with clinically-diagnosed, chronic pancreatitis demonstrated pronounced exocrine pancreatic dysfunction with beta-cell functioning differing significantly[edoc.unibas.ch] […] of the normal pancreatic tissue.[jemds.com] Secretin stimulation test: a positive result occurs if 60% or more pancreatic exocrine function is damaged.[patient.info]
