Pancreatitis and Insulin


Damage to insulin-producing cells in your pancreas from chronic pancreatitis can cause diabetes, a disease that affects the way your body uses blood glucose. Pancreatogenic diabetes may be a sort of secondary diabetes, classified by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and therefore the World Health Organization as type 3c DM (T3cDM).1,2 It refers to diabetes thanks to diseases of the exocrine pancreas: pancreatitis (acute, relapsing, or chronic pancreatitis of any etiology), pancreatectomy/trauma, neoplasia, CF, hemochromatosis, and fibrocalculous pancreatopathy.
