- - - The Pancreas and Cystic Fibrosis - - -

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.
