What is EPI?
Don't be shy about talking to your provider.
Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) is a condition that can cause complications, including malnourishment. Yet, it can go undiagnosed if you don’t raise concerns with your health care provider.
EPI symptoms can mirror those of other, troubling, gastrointestinal (GI) issues from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) to celiac disease, such as:
- Losing weight without trying.
- Stomach cramps.
- Gas and bloating.
New research from AGA shows many Americans aren’t aware of EPI and rarely seek treatment.
