About Pancreatic Disease
At MUSC, we want our patients to be fully informed about their condition and their options for treatment. While we welcome the opportunity to talk with you personally, this section will help you to:
- learn about the critical role that the pancreas plays in the management of blood sugar and in the production of enzymes essential to food digestion
- discover the potential causes of pancreatitis - an often painful and sometimes misunderstood inflammatory condition that can appear suddenly, requiring emergency care, or persist as a chronic condition
- find out about the symptoms, risk factors and potential solutions offered by the experts at MUSC who are changing what's possible for those who struggle with the pain and hardships of pancreatitis.
