Pancreatic Health

The pancreas is a long flattened gland located deep in the belly (abdomen). Because the pancreas isn’t seen or felt in our day to day lives, most people don't know as much about the pancreas as they do about other parts of their bodies. The pancreas is, however, a vital part of the digestive system and a critical controller of blood sugar levels.


Problems with the pancreas can lead to many health problems, including:

​​​​Pancreatitis, or inflammation of the pancreas
Pancreatic cancer
Cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder in which thick, sticky mucus can also block tubes in your pancreas



The pancreas also plays a role in diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas no longer make insulin because the body's immune system has attacked them. With type 2 diabetes, the pancreas loses the ability to secrete enough insulin in response to meals.


The American Cancer Society’s estimates for pancreatic cancer in the United States for 2017 are:
About 53,670 people (27,970 men and 25,700 women) will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
About 43,090 people (22,300 men and 20,790 women) will die of pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer accounts for about 3% of all cancers in the US and about 7% of all cancer deaths.
