Frequently Asked Questions


What are the warning signs of pancreatitis?

How do you check pancreas function?

Pancreas function is checked by checking its ability to respond to secretin, a hormone. Secretin helps release the substances in the pancreas, liver, and stomach that aid in digesting food. A tube is inserted through throat or the nose into the small intestine and the stomach in a pancreatic function test. Then, secretin is injected into the vein. Samples of fluid are then taken from the small intestine through the tube and sent for testing. The test helps diagnose problems affecting the pancreas, such as pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, and gastrinoma, a pancreatic tumor. The pancreatic function test is also called the secretin stimulation test.
