  1. How many of you have had your exocrine pancreas function tested to check for any level of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (a.k.a EPI)?

    EPI happens when your pancreas no longer produces and/or delivers enough pancreatic enzymes in order to break down fats, protein and carbohydrates properly into usable nutrients.

    EPI can cause many symptoms, often not thought to be related, through malabsorption of nutrients and subsequent nutrient deficiencies. This in turn causes metabolic pathways to struggle.

    This was the underlying cause for my ME/CFS and is often not considered by doctors and sufferers.
