Recent findings have suggested that incretin-based therapies promote pancreatic inflammation and possibly cell proliferation within the endocrine and exocrine pancreas (1). However, these studies have been met with substantive criticism based on technical and methodical issues (2). Nevertheless, incretin-based therapies seem to result in small increases (within normal range) in plasma concentrations of amylase and lipase in patients receiving these treatments. For example, in the SCALE… CONTINUE READING
