Gail, you ask about the pancreatic specialist. This is actually the first time I've seen him. Up till now my gastro has been taking
care of that.
I'm not so sure what the appointment will involve, but I'm thinking it's to check me for the likelihood of type 1 diabetes, and my
elevated risk of pancreatic cancer. Actually at the moment, my CD seems to be behaving, due I'm sure to Humira, but my pancreatic
pain has incresed, and I'm wondering if that hasn't got something to due to humira also. Studies are now showing that the drug can
cause an increase of triglycerides (fat in blood) which in turn affects pancreatic function. It's kind of the same old story, stuck between
the devil and the deep blue sea, or as you guys say "a rock and a hard place".
We will see!!!!
