Collection: Information about diet and digestion

Pancreatic cancer can cause problems with digestion. This can cause symptoms, including weight loss, appetite loss, runny poo (diarrhoea), tummy pain, bloating, wind and indigestion.

Our information explains how to manage these problems. This includes taking pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) such as Creon®, Nutrizym® and Pancrex®.
