282 Possible Causes for Pancreatic Exocrine Deficiency

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

    Rates of vitamin D deficiency are higher among people with untreated celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency from cystic fibrosis, and[en.wikipedia.org] […] are higher among people with untreated celiac disease, [36] [37] inflammatory bowel disease, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency from cystic fibrosis, and short bowel syndrome[en.wikipedia.org] Vitamin D deficiency is also more common after surgical procedures that reduce absorption from the intestine, including weight loss procedures.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    Schilling test result or anti-intrinsic factor antibodies), pancreatic exocrine insufficiency, and/or history of gastrectomy or small bowel resection.[doi.org] Intestinal malabsorption: chronic pancreatitis (exocrine insufficiency), Crohn's disease, Whipple's disease, celiac disease, amyloidosis, scleroderma, intestinal lymphomas[doi.org] We defined a case as a Chinese subject with diabetes mellitus and vitamin B 12 deficiency during metformin treatment after excluding subjects who had pernicious anemia (positive[doi.org]

  • Pancreatic Insufficiency

    Abstract Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) is characterized by a deficiency of exocrine pancreatic enzymes, resulting in deficits in digestion of all macronutrients,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Low exocrine pancreatic function resulting in phosphorus, magnesium and vitamin D deficiency was found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) is characterized by a deficiency of exocrine pancreatic enzymes, resulting in malabsorption.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    exocrine pancreatic insufficiency.[orpha.net] Cystic fibrosis causes a well-recognized pancreatic exocrine function insufficiency, but the same thick, viscous secretions cause inflammation, obstruction, and destruction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in individuals with a median 15-year history of diabetes mellitus (range, 5-26 years). [13] This may also explain the associated exocrine deficiency seen in prolonged diabetes[emedicine.com]

  • Pearson Syndrome

    pancreatic deficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other clinical features are failure to thrive, pancreatic fibrosis with insulin-dependent diabetes and exocrine pancreatic deficiency, muscle and neurologic impairment, and[enerca.org] Exocrine pancreatic deficiency could not be evidenced and post-mortem studies revealed a 4.9 kb deletion of the mitochondrial DNA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Endocrine Dysfunction

  • Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

    […] in individuals with a median 15-year history of diabetes mellitus (range, 5-26 years). [13] This may also explain the associated exocrine deficiency seen in prolonged diabetes[emedicine.medscape.com] A study by Philippe et al used computed tomography (CT) scan findings, glucagon stimulation test results, and fecal elastase-1 measurements to confirm reduced pancreatic volume[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Toddler's Diarrhea

    Protein malabsorption Protein malabsorption is a fairly common result of exocrine pancreatic enzyme deficiency, as occurs in patients with cystic fibrosis.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Wolcott-Rallison Syndrome

    Exocrine pancreatic deficiency has been reported in only four cases other than our four patients. Central hypothyroidism was observed in six of 28 cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Exocrine pancreatic deficiency . Skeletal dysplasia .[docksci.com] Other well described features are developmental delay whereas episodic renal dysfunction, exocrine pancreatic deficiency, neutropenia and recurrent infections are relatively[docksci.com]

  • Diarrhea

    Thus, pancreatic exocrine insufficiency is the most frequent cause of severe predominant steatorrhoea where faecal fat excretion exceeds 13 g/day (47 mmol/day). 173 This is[doi.org] Although there are generally coexisting deficiencies of fat, carbohydrate, protein, vitamins and minerals, the effects of one of these may predominate.[doi.org]
