Description: Pancreatitis is a condition that occurs when the pancreas, an organ behind the stomach, becomes swollen and painful.
The pancreas produces digestive enzymes and insulin. The digestive enzymes flow into the small intestine to help break down food. Insulin is released into the blood to control the level of sugar (glucose) in the blood.
Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.
