Join us as GI expert Dr. Eli Penn walks us through the symptoms of pancreatitis doctors look for, the tests patients can ask for to receive an accurate diagnosis, and tools patients can use to be better equipped during their next doctor’s visit.
In addition to having a moderated doctor/patient conversation, Dr. Penn will answer the following questions:
- How do we know if the pancreas is inflamed?
- How can we find out what causes the inflammation?
- Which tests are available and should be performed?
