Liver Disease Treatment in Southeast Georgia
Different Types of Pancreatic Disorders
The pancreas is not an organ but a gland that plays an important role in digestion. It secretes digestive enzymes into the small intestine to help further break down food so that nutrients can be absorbed. It also releases important regulating hormones, such as insulin. One of the most common pancreatic diseases is diabetes. Other common disorders include pancreatitis (an inflammation of the pancreas), pancreatic cancer and enzyme insufficiency. Cystic fibrosis also affects the ability of this gland to work efficiently.
