    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency: Pancreas play an important role in the digestion of food. It produces enzymes which help in the breakdown of food and absorption of nutrients. Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency occurs in people whose bodies do not make enough of their own enzymes. This leads to the inability of proper food digestion due to the pancreas' lack of a digestive enzyme. Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency could occur due to various conditions such as cystic fibrosis (an inherited disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system), pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), diabetes, celiac disease (inability to digest gluten), pancreatic cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, Zollinger-Ellison disease, pancreatic or stomach surgery. Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency symptoms include abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea, flatulence, weight loss, and steatorrhea (loose, fatty, smelly stools).
