Elastase down from 44 to 7 in 4 weeks.


Recommended Posts

Hi, just got received elastase result which was 7 and am now panicking.  This suggests that I possibly blockage somewhere. I also have pressure on my right hand side below my ribs. 

No other diagnosis as yet other than pancreatic insufficiency. Consultant has given me Creon. 
In 2018 I had major bowel surgery for cancer and was given a bag for life so I now have a permanent stoma.

Good morning Angieannie,


You may wish to contact the nurses on the support line about your query, they may be able to give you some guidance around the elastase result and what this might indicate for you.


kind regards,
