Pancreatic Exocrine Insufficiency: Symptoms, Diagnosis, & Treatment

Bloating, stomach cramps, and loose stools are three signs of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (also known as PEI or EPI).




Pancreatic insufficiency (PEI) is a condition in which the pancreas does not produce enough digestive enzymes. It commonly occurs in conjunction with other disorders like autoimmune disease and celiac. If left untreated, it can result in disorders like malnutrition, osteoporosis, muscle wasting and more.


Thankfully, a functional medicine approach to pancreatic exocrine insufficiency can effectively relieve symptoms of PEI and even treat the root cause so that you can finally enjoy good digestion, less bloating and normal bowel movements as a result!


I wrote an article that will teach you everything you need to know about diagnosing, treating and healing PEI naturally.
