Busting the Myths about Pancreatic Enzymes for Pancreatitis
If you think you have pancreatic insufficiency due to pancreatitis or another disorder, you won’t want to miss Mission: Cure’s next webinar. Get the information you need about exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) and whether and how you should take pancreatic enzymes. This will be the 5th webinar in our ongoing series for chronic pancreatitis and recurrent acute pancreatitis patients and their families.
Our speaker will be leading international expert
Dr. Steven Freedman
Director of the Pancreas Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School
Many people with recurrent acute or chronic pancreatitis experience EPI, or exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. The treatment for EPI is pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy or PERT. Unfortunately, there remains much confusion about accurate diagnosing of EPI as well as proper dosing and administration of oral enzymes. Dr. Freedman will solve the mysteries that surround EPI and will provide factual, practical guidance on diagnosis and treatment. He will also address participant questions during a Q&A session.
This webinar is brought to you by Mission: Cure, a nonprofit organization that aims to find a cure and improve the quality of life of those affected by pancreatitis by applying innovative financing to medical research and drug development.
