I saw that too.  Now I can confront my parents with this darning evidence!
I was having an argument with my Mum (retired nurse).  Mum lays the blame of me having this condition squarely at the feet of my very poor diet over a number of years.  I agreed, but said that somewhere, some little genetic tweak has made my pancreas less able to do it's job.  Mum didn't agree, but I pointed out the thousands (nay millions) of obese people who have shocking diets, smoke and drink, and live to be 80 without so much as an 'arrgh' from their pancreas.  Zounds and gadzooks, I got her to admit I had a point!  Shame I didn't tape it!
