Victor, 52-year-old man with chronic pancreatitis (CP) and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI)
How well do you understand the journey of a patient with EPI?
Close to 3 years ago, Victor was hospitalized with acute pancreatitis. Later, an abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan showed pancreatic calcifications indicating CP. He was able to manage his intermittent abdominal pain with over-the-counter (OTC) nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, but during the past year he started having additional GI symptoms that got progressively worse despite his best efforts to control them. His GI symptoms included postprandial pain, flatulence, bloating, and diarrhea.
