Impaired exocrine pancreatic secretion has been frequently observed in diabetic patients by different methods, including direct function tests. However, the clinical importance remained unclear. In the present study, the fecal fat excretion in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus and exocrine dysfunction according to fecal elastase 1 concentrations <100 μg/g was investigated. Subjects with a history of gastrointestinal cancer, gastrointestinal surgery, alcohol abuse, or inflammatory… CONTINUE READING
