Endocrinology

Uncommon but Manageable: Pancreatic Exocrine Insufficiency (PEI) (2019) – Mainpro+

The program will focus on identification of symptoms, signs and conditions that are associated with PEI, as well as the testing, diagnosis and treatment of PEI. PEI should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with unresolved GI complaints, particularly those with unexplained weight loss at higher risk of PEI (e.g., type I diabetes, heavy drinking/smoking, celiac disease, gastrointestinal resection). PEI and suspected PEI are treated with pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) and lifestyle modifications.
