The pancreas is yet another secreting gland and that means the secretion of
alkaline fluid is blocked , because of its thickness .
This results in clogging in the ducts which lead to the duodenum.
Because this happens and the alkaline is still present within the pancreas
this will lead to a detoriation of the pancreas , and a Cystic Fibrosis patient
becomes pancreatic insufficient mostly right after birth , which means that 90 %
of the pancreas is out of order.
There is , however , a small minority of CF patients who are pancreatic sufficient.
In adulthood this detoriation of the pancreas may lead to a form of diabetes.
And thats why we must take those pancreas / pancreon pills or we get a lot of pain in our tummy and yucky farts.
